I work in a university physics lab, and I’m completely new to electronics systems and have been tasked with building an electric motor system to shutter lasers on a table at certain points. I’ve done some reading about it and have concluded I need a small (Nema 14 or lower) motor with minimal torque. I’d only be moving a lightweight metal blade up and down a few degrees over the course of about 0.2-0.1 seconds. The load wouldn’t be more than 20 grams. I’d need to program the system in LabView, to be controlled from a regular PC.
Can anyone recommend any guides or materials I could use to select parts for this system, or direct product recommendations from Pololu? We’re probably looking to purchase around a dozen or two of these motors for the table, and whatever control apparatus they need. Thanks so much for your help!!
