I want to drive a DC motor (linear actuator) rated at 12V with a 24V DC supply. Will using a driver IC that does current regulation (e.g. MP6515) be enough, or would I need additional measures in place? All other components would be properly sized (capacitors, etc.)
DC Motor Overvoltage Operation suggests that using 24V instead of 12V would be ok from an insulation perspective, and I know stepper motors in 3D-printer stepper motors are regularly run at voltages much higher than rated. I'm just unsure if I miss anything that would be different for DC motors.
I don't aim at getting more power or torque, I just want to use existing motors with another power supply needed for different reasons.
