I bought a 220V 100W sewing machine motor to use in a project.
I thought that the motor works only on AC because 220V is written on it, but I tried it with 30V Dc and surprisingly it spun.
- Is that enough to know that this motor is a universal motor?
- If it is a universal motor, what is the best way to power it to get full power with 220V DC ? Maybe a rectifier bridge?
- I don't want to work with AC voltage because it is hard to control (for me) and it needs TRIAC trimming with zero cross detection to work with an Arduino so can I just use an Arduino and a MOSFET to control the motor with 220V DC? What is the best MOSFET for this thing?
