or the past few weeks I've been trying to control a 48-volt DC motor with 4 12-volt batteries, an Arduino, and a mosfet. Even though the datasheet says it can run up to 60 volts and 110 amps, as soon as I hooked up my mosfet it got really hot and stopped ignoring commands from my Arduino and ran continuously.
After this I tried removing one of the batteries but after it's been hooked up to a different mosfet it works for 15 seconds or so, then the mosfet stops working. I'm just lost at this point. If anyone could help me with why the mosfets keep breaking I would greatly appreciate it.
Here is a link to the data sheet of my mosfets, IRF3205.
This is what my setup looks like.
Long story short my setup makes my mosfets super hot and makes them no longer functional and i would m like to know why.
