i’m building some differential drive robots using a number of your products (+ some other stuff for using lithium ion batteries). it’s all coming together well. thanks for a great range of products!
they are for an art exhibition where they will be running 8 hours a day for 4 weeks. i am wondering for how long can i expect the micromotors to last? (unfortunately i wont be around for the second two weeks)
i am using 50:1 micromotors (non HP)
i’m running them at 6V
the robots are mostly moving really slowly
(< 25% duty cycle)
and are never running above a 50% PWM duty cycle
they stall occaisionally (when they run into each other)
but never for more than 10 seconds at a time
i realise that this is quite speculative. i’ve had them for several days so far
(and obviously i’ll have a much better sense of this after the show)
can you give me a sense of how long they might last?
