I'm trying to use an H-bridge, which is connected to a wall power supply, to power a DC motor. The motor was originally powered by a 12V battery pack in a toy.
Now my motor is consuming too much current (2.5 A instead of 1A) (the theoretical maximum current of the power supply is 2A)
the motor even started smoking :(
Why is the motor consuming too much current? It should only take what it needs from the power supply right ?
thanks for your help, there was an overvoltage :(, I destroyed my motor.... The motor worked with 5v and I fed them with 12v
