I have a pair of motors and the datasheet says that typical peak effective current is 177mA, max rated current is 218mA, typical no load is 53mA.
Now thats all fine but it also says typical start current 1230mA.
My question is how important is this number...
If 1230mA cant be supplied does that mean the motor will not start? Or just start slower?
Im looking at a H bridge IC and its maximum output current per bridge is 1A. Does this mean the motor will not start at all (or slower?) also would it burn out the chip? Or because its only a start current and not an average current the sudden spike above 1A will not affect the chip (just aslong as its not above 1A for too long?)
The motor is 12V
