How to convert an encoded dc motor into a smart servomotor?


I found that monster of a brushless DC motor:

As you see, this thing got a ridiculous torque, and it even got an encoder! So, I was wondering if someone know a book or a tutorial about making servo motor from dc motor. I never tried to build my own, but having a smart servo of this strength is a tempting idea, especially when considering the price of other smart servo with similar specs.

Hello @Factao,

That is a really powerful motor :smiley:

There are some tutorials on RobotShop that can help you with this topic. Maybe you can start with:

Anyway, maybe best would be after that to check this tutorial on Instructables:
It looks simple and cheap :smiley:

Hope this was helpful…
