Most wheelchair motors draw 20 amps so most of us that use them us Sabertooth 2x25.
For the motor controller I always use the 2x32 sabertooth being that is about the same price as the 2x25 with plenty of extra amperage.
Also, the learn section has a pile of information connecting the sabertooth to your EZ-B v4/2 Wi-Fi Robot Controller.
And as always, it’s a good idea to start off with the robot program episodes. Have fun!
This is the one I purchased can I use this ssr for my radio remote
The DC side can either be getting it's controlled power from a micro controller or a RC receiver getting it's signal from a RC controller. The AC side needs it's own AC power source. I guess it could be a powered DC source also.
The big thing here is this unit you have here can handle up to 40 amps of load on the AC side. That's a lot. Also once the dc voltage is turned off the AC side switch will open. I don't think this is a latching relay where the AC side will stay open when power is lost.
Here's a good video on using and wiring this ssr:
