windscreen wiper controlled by servo
« on: April 18, 2012, 08:46:47 AM »
Hi.  I've seen a few articles on making a powerful servo using a windscreen wiper motor and a d-200 Tecel motor driver.  The websites are really old though and I've no idea where I can buy a d-200 (the links just go to a spanish telecoms site).  Does anyone know where I might get one or if there is another equivalent around? 
thanks

Hi,

Most of the larger robotics sites will have something usable, but take a look at the sabretooth drivers at http://www.dimensionengineering.com/
(They ain't cheap though).

Also, there's a lot of different builds (of power servos) on YouTube and at east some of them has links to sites with more info, so take a look there as well.

A rather fast and fairly heavy robot with quite large wheels needs what? A lot of power?
