How can I measure the high stall current of these motors without melting my ammeter? Answered
I would like to measure the current of a couple 24VDC motors that I own. I have always measured stall current on my model trains by connecting my ammeter in series with the motor, forcing it to stall, and supplying what ever voltage I expected to be operating the motors at. I think if I do that with these other motors and a couple car batteries, I will very quickly fry my meter... I am expecting two- to three-hundred amps..
Someone help, please? you lurking out there somewhere, Kip :P?
