Ok so by putting a voltage regulator on my circuit am I just losing power?
What is a VERY POWERFUL battery you guys would recommend for the axon mote? Hawker?
No actually I was just looking for a battery people may have used in the past that they found successful. Not the saying you said above. Excuse my misuse of words.
I will be able to control those with this motor driver then, right?[Snip link to Sabertooth 2X25.]
When it says 6-24 volt nominal I assume thats input from the battery, but will I lose power if my motors require 24 volt each? That probably doesn't matter because it meets the amp requirements, right?
[...] I wouldn't need a switch mode converter or linear regulation if I was using a separate battery for the axon, would I?
Ok the recommended voltage for an axon is 6 volts. Which regulator do I buy?
Would any of these from this website work? http://www.dimensionengineering.com/
Ok I didn't quite understand that last paragraph.
Can you possibly explain what the circuitry will look like just for the battery, motor driver, and axon. Basically how I'm going to connect these parts.
I decided I'm going to use a separate battery for the motors and a separate battery for the electronics to avoid brownouts.
I'm going to need a lot of current from the battery because I will be powering wireless camera that gives me a live video feed. That will powered by the battery that corresponds to the electronics. Also I will be running many sensors/devices off of the axon II (ie gps, range finder, search lights, servo) so i will be needing a lot of current.
Once I figure out the which parts (gps, servo, etc) I am going to use, I'll post the specifications (current/voltage required) on here of each one and we'll figure it out from there.
