Specification of the BO motors I am using:
Working voltage : 3V to 9V 30gm weight Ability to operate with minimum or no lubrication, due to inherent lubricity. 1.9Kgf.cm torque No-load current = 60mA, Stall current = 700mA
I tried powering both driver and the Arduino using a single 9V Alkaline battery by Panasonic at the arduino black jack. But the motor does not move at all. I had to use a
12V adapter ( 220v ac to 12v dc, 3A)
for this purpose.
Is it not possible to run the motors using 9V connected to the arduino power jack? I want to make it a battery powered system. So what are the alternatives (to using the adapter) ? I further want to use only a single power supply in my line follower.
Appreciate your suggestions in this regard.
