I'm trying to build a robot that will use two motors at 24V. Yet to measure how many amps they will consume. My motors controllers can only do 23A. Planning on accelerating slowly with the hope that I never exceed 23A on each controller. I will also be running a wireless router (12V 2A rated), small computer (12V 3A max), arduino, couple of logitech cameras off a USB Hub (hub is rated at 12V/5A).
I'm considering using standard SLA batteries.
What is the best way to protect from shorts, accidental current overdraw, and reverse connections? I have seen some automotive circuit breakers rated at 50A. Is there a single solution that addresses all of these or will I have to have separate solutions to address each (shorts, over current draw, and reverse conditions)?
I see that this topic addresses similar question, but is targeted for low amps. I need something that can handle 60-80A.
