I need help determining the necessary specs of a DC motor I need for a project? v/amps/hp/torque, etc?
I have the frame (cart) including some 8" pneumatic wheels if I choose to use them). The part I'm stumped on is the motor, controller and whatever I need for transmission/gears.
Here's a couple of very expensive commercial options which are overkill for what I need (and far too pricey!), but at least it gives some idea of what I have in mind.
This link includes some detailed specs on the motor they chose to use....
I'm not sure what the relevant specs I need to be concerned with are. For example, I have a bunch of 18v dewalt motors which I understand can be over-volted but does that get me the hp and torque I need? If it's more amps I need than what the little dewalt motors will give me, could I use a 12v car battery and a starter motor? If so, what would I need to use for a controller and drivetrain?
I think what I need is a very low rpm/high-torque motor, but don't know for sure. And if that's what I need, what are some common applications that they were used in that I might find such a motor?
any help or ideas would be appreciated
