I have a DC motor that will be rotating a large heavy robot torso side to side. The torso will be sitting on a lazy Susan and a gear ring. I know I'll need an H bridge and have already bought one from the store here (2.5 Amp Motor Controller). I'm open to getting something else like a motor controller if needed. Any suggestions is welcomed.
Also, I'm trying to figure out the best way to read the location of the end of the rotation on each side and the center position. I want it to be controlled by a script and not RC for mow. I have read of rotation encoders like this: tiny.cc/u8iaiw
but I'm more familiar with micro stitches. Seems like the rotation encoder would give me more control of the randomness of rotation. Kinda like a servo
. It's important that the torso comes to center after the movement. Anyway, where on the Ez-b would I connect each of sensor devices? Also what control entry in the ez builder would I use?
Thanks in advance for the help, David Schulpius
