I am running a gear motor on my robot's sholder. It is 6 to 24 volts (I am running about 11 to 12 volts) and draws 90 to 150 mA. I accidentally ran it past a stop and stripped the gears when it stalled. Can I prevent this from happening again with a fuse? If so what amperage should the fuse be?

That sounds like a plan but since the motor is controlled by an H Bridge what would the switch control?????? If it cut the power to the H Bridge or to the servo how would one return power to it to reverse the motor. I have seen this done but can 't remember the wiring diagram to make it happen. It doesn't happen very often so I thought the fuse was a good idea but I don't know if it would work and what the milliamprage should be. Either a wiring diagram for the micro switch or the proper milliamperage would be a big help.
