Orangutan b 328 dc gearmotor current control/limit

I’m looking some informations about the Orangutan b 328.
It will connect to my rc receiver, and drive a micro gear motor connected to a threaded rod (bidirectionnal, and to endstops).

Is it possible to get a proportionnal signal of the current drawn by the dc motor on the Orangutan b 328? (maybe adding a sensing resistor on the H bridge). i would use this signal to monitor/limit the current through the motor when reaching the endstops.

thanks, Manu


The Baby Orangutan does not have built-in current sensing, so you would need to add your own. The easiest way might be to use current sensors.
