2 -12V DC motors vs 1-24V DC motor
« on: December 08, 2014, 09:54:46 PM »
I am building a robot, and I was wondering if there would be an advantage to using two 12V DC motors vs one 24V DC motors, assuming that I can achieve the same rated torque output in both setups. Is there an advantage(or disadvantage) to having a lower voltage system?

Can you explain what you are trying to achieve and how you plan to use two motors in place of one?

Generally speaking you can achieve a higher power density with higher voltage motors. This is usually a very good thing in robotics.
