Hello People of Pololu,
We have a 50:1 Metal Gearmotor (#4753), and interested in what motor driver(s) you may recommend, especially something that is in shield form for the Arduino? Upon reading about the 4753 motor, I see that one is advised to operated the motor at only 25% of stall current. The stall current is 5.5A, so I assume that the motor is best to be driven at ~1.3A, yes? If this is correct, wondering if one may use the Pololu Dual TB9051FTG Motor Driver Shield for Arduino (#2520) ? Apparently, the TB9051FTG is capable of driving 2.6A continuously, which is double the recommended 1.3A max of the #4753 gear motor, perhaps this is a good match?
Looking forward to your reply!
