I have a 30A 5-30V Single Brushed DC motor driver that will be used with a 12V 30A gear motor.
I have a MegaWatt 36 Amp 12 Volt 13.8V DC Regulated Power Supply that I wanted to use for the driver pwr source. But, I just realized the driver docs say to ALWAYS use a battery as a power source if an inductive load is used.
The docs say that a battery must be used in parallel with the power supply to protect the driver against possible flowback when the motor is stopped.
My question is: can I use a 12V car battery, and simply wire the power supply and motor driver to it, then set pwr supply output to 13.5V? The pwr supply would always remain ON.
