Doors and WIndows Automation Answered
I am trying to automate the windows and doors in our barn using NEMA stepper motor and Lead screw and would like to exert around 20 Kg force for opening or closing. The windows are fairly old and made of wrought Iron.
I am wondering if somebody can advise and help me selecting the motor (based on torque) and the appropriate diameter of the Lead screw for this instance. The idea being that when the lead screw rotates, the ball nut flange moves left or right and pushes the connecting rod out or in thus opening or closing the window
I have attached a rough sketch what I had in mind and please pardon me for any mistakes.
