Help needed to create powerful motor controller
« on: August 15, 2009, 09:53:54 PM »
I'm creating a robot with 4 Wheel drive. 4 Motors are to be driven using wireless remote control.. Each motor consumes Max. 9.5A at 12V. The remote controls are ready and i Guess my L298 driver isn't useful anymore... Please suggest circuits or ideas.
Note: I can't buy readymade circuits available online cause I live in India.

do you think a simple transistor+relay package will suffice?

Hi,

Note: I can't buy readymade circuits available online cause I live in India.

Why not?

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