I'm new need a dual motor speed controller

Hello I’m really new to robotics can someone recommend me a part I’m building a project that needs a dual motor speed controller and can find one really so can someone recommend me one it has to be relatively cheap thanks

Hi @Helloimnew and welcome to our forum.

Which type of motors you will use? What is their nominal voltage and amperage?

Thank you.

I’m not sure yet but the instructions say use two cordless drills so I will use them I will look on the drills to find the specs if you want

Yeah, you must know the voltage, amperage and the power to choose properly the controller.

Do you already have these drills or you just plan to bought it?

I’m going to buy it as soon as I get the money

I am not sure what is the nominal and maximum amperage that motors from these drills will consume, but this controller should be able to take it: https://www.robotshop.com/en/sabertooth-dual-12a-regenerative-motor-driver.html

Thank you so much that will do 2 motors correct?

Yeah, it’s dual.

To be sure, try to find out (google it) what is the usual current consumption for the DC motors from your drills.
