I want to get a fine speed regulation of Pittman DC 24 V brushed motor with 10,000 RPM for a hobby project. The voltage I will use is battery 12 V DC, so does that mean the speed will be 5,000 RPM?
I will try to find ready gearbox combination with 400 : 1 ratio because I want to get around 12.5 RPM at the shaft. The load will be pretty constant during the use of the motor. Motor will work continuously just rotating the load at very slow speed, so in several hours the load will only rotate 90 degrees. Mow I want to FINE control the speed of this gearmotor with PWM around 0.0133 RPM! Is this possible to achieve at all and is this possible to achieve with PWM?
I never did any electronic project in my life, so here my knowledge stops. From reading the internet, I suppose I need to use PWM. How I will regulate the speed with the PWM? Does PWM offer some sort of potentiometer or something else?
I see PWM images on Amazon and I can only see input and output connectors. I don't want to regulate and command the PWM with a computer or something similar to computer or computer program or something complex, just as simple as possible, just PWM and I suppose potentiometer.
If using a potentiometer, it is obviously that regulation needs to be logarithmic, because I want a lot of potentiometer movement around 0.0133 speed let's say 0.010 - 0.015 RPM, and a bit at 0.10 and not at all at 1 and 10 RPM. But I want also to push the potentiometer or whatever will regulate the speed to maximum from time to time, let's say every 10 or 15 minutes so to use that maximum speed at the shaft of 12.5 RPM. That maximum speed can be 10 or 15 RPM, it is not at all important. I just want this maximum speed to be also available for several seconds or a minute, nothing else.
