I am wanting to use the 24v23 Simple Motor Controller with a 24VDC gearmotor (grainger.com/Grainger/DAYTON … otor-4ZJ45). I am stuck on choosing an AC to DC power supply. I am pretty sure I want something that puts out a little more than 24V so that I can speed the motor up a bit if I need to, but I am lost on the current requirements.
I have not purchased the motor yet so I can not test for stall current. For my application, the motor provides more than enough torque to perform the operation, and the environment is fairly controlled so I don’t see the motor stalling. I plan to use a fuse to prevent the motor from using too much current. Is there a general rule that I can follow to decide on current output from a power supply to get in the ballpark?
