Which controlller?

Which motor controller would you recommend for this motor?


Would the 18v25 be sufficient?


It really depends on how you want to use it. Assuming you want to run it at 12 V and don’t need full power out of it, it should be okay. You can see from the specs that can probably continuously deliver up to around 140 lb*in (for some reason the table specifies the torque in “in/lb”, which is wrong), so if this is enough for you, the SMC 18v25 should be sufficient. Just make sure you keep the motor from stalling for prolonged periods of time (this would probably be bad for the motor, too), and consider enabling the controller’s acceleration limiting to keep current spikes down when accelerating or changing direction.
