I need to find a PID controller for a 12V 1hp DC motor.
I am currently building a tachometer for velocity feedback.
My question is if anyone can suggest PID control hardware and software that is good for this type of motor?
I was thinking about using this driver from Pololu with an Arduino microcontroller but I am not sure if this is a robust enough solution. Also I dont believe that this can handle the current from the motor. Still doing calculations on that.
I will need to program a routine for the motor to run through. It will speed up, slow down, and change direction over time. Actually I will be using two motors but I figured it would be hard to find a dual motor PID controller. Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
