How can i power this unidentifiable motor? Answered
I have a motor that has no markings on it outside except for the letters DMEGC, which I understand to be a Chinese company that produces motor housings among other things. I think that it came off of an electric scooter, but I'm not even sure about that. The person who gave it to me only knew that it was a DC motor from somwhere.
It's about three inches deep and the diameter is probably about 4". It has two wires coming out of it.
My question is: What should I use to power this thing? I don't want to waste a bunch of money on it. How risky is it to just test out AC-DC adapters on it? I've got a plug here I wouldn't mind wasting if it will work that outputs 12VDC 500mA.
Sorry, I'm a real beginner with electronics and I'm probably asking really dumb questions, but if someone could help me out, I'd be really grateful.
