As part of a project I am working on, I need to be able to control a Hydraulic Flow Valve remotely from a tablet. My current plan is to use an Arduino Mega 2560 for this purpose (the project also includes operating relays that are unrelated to this post)
The Hydraulic Flow Valve in question is a Brand Hydraulics EFC12-30-12, and here is the data sheet.
It is normally sold with an EC - Series Electronic Control Box
From all of the data available, it seems the Control box uses 12V 1A and PWM to control the Flow Valve. So I need to provide the same signal. The Arduino Mega can do PWM, but the 12V 1A is above what it can directly provide.
From a little research, it seems I should be able to use a L298N Dual H-Bridge Motor Driver to "step up" the 5V signal to 12V, while maintaining the PWM.
I am not great with electrical stuff, so I wanted to just ask here before I started building: Am I on the right track, and is there anything I am missing? Example diagram below:
