I'm going to use the Gecko 201's in my project but I've managed to confuse myself in the process. I have a couple of questions I was hoping I could get answered to clear things up.
My motors range in voltages/currents, from memory they lie within 5V - 7V and 1.5A to 5A.
1. The gecko manuals state that it requires a minimum of 24Vdc to operate correctly and will operate up to 80Vdc. I assume that if I build a supply of around 30Vdc (this figure was obtained from another post as a recommended size) that the drives will regulate the voltage/current to my motors?
2. Is the 30Vdc a good size pwr supply to have? What current should I be looking for when building this supply. I assume if I size it for the combined current ratings of the motors that I want to use, plus 30% for other potential uses and to keep the supply within a good limit.
This is probably a good set of questions to start with.
Any help appreciated
