Hello Community, This is my first time understanding Ardunio, and its potential applications. For my application, i want to have a circuit that powers a very small motor (winch) to lift an object via pulley and cable. This circuit must then be shut off when i want to lower this object. When i lower this object, my motor spins backwards and acts like a generator, and i want to store this energy on ultracapacitors. From there, once i have enough energy on my ultracapacitors, i want to run my motor with that energy.
Is Arduino capable of running this system, with 3 main operations being lifting, lowering, and running on ultracapacitor?
Is it capable of shutting off incoming power, what kind of senors should i use?
Note the Ardunio will have its own power supply, and not be connected to this circuit, only for data inputs.
Thanks I am going to do a lot more research on this forum and others for similar applications and answers.
