I am about to buy my first Arduino board and shield
i want to be able to read a very fast rpm - up to 50,000 rpm
i want to be able to control a motor to limit the engine speed, 12 v - maybe upgrade this to 32 amps 240 v in the future
which arduine and shield do i need to buy ?
do i need an Uno ?
Thanks in advance
thanks for the reply
I want to be able to control a DC motor
that motor could be 12V and approx 20 amps
or that motor could run 240 VAC converted to DC at up to 32 amps
I am thinking i probably need to think about using a solid state relay to switch the duty cycle of the higher voltage
is there a shield that lends itself to PWM ?
where should i buy the arduino from - are clones ok ?
Thanks for the info - those boards look really good
can i use an arduino to control them ?
