I have already made a diagram using a motor controller. I want to use only one power supply to feed arduino and motors. I want to use MDD10 dual motor driver.
The details of the actuators each one is:
Input voltage: 12VDC, Max Load: 750N(168.607lbs), Stroke Length: 16 inch, Travel Speed: 12mm/s, Duty Cyle: 25%, Current: 5A.
The power supply is 12V, 10A.
Could you please check if it is ok, or which would be the best solution?
Some of my concerns are:
Be sure if the feed of 12 volts for the motors, and 5 volts for Arduino are correct and can live together as shown.
Be sure if the wiring for the Arduino, driver and motors is correct since it looks kind of simple. I want to know if this is the natural approach by doing it with a voltage regulator to feed the Arduino and with 12V 10A power supply to feed the motors, or if there are other, better options to make the circuit feed only using one power supply (12V, 10A).
Thanks in advance
I have increased power supply to 13A, also changed the linear voltage regulator (7805) to a switching voltage regulator (OKI-78SR-5), what do you think about this approach? Or I should try with the 12V DC Vin of Arduino(I understand that it works with a linear voltage regulator)? Being this option, it could be maybe with a voltage pre-regulation stage(for example from 12V to 9V) or maybe connecting directly to the jack. Thanks, Best Regards.
