Week 11 – Loads

AC Loads:

Any AC load can be controlled with Arduino using a relay, including motors, fans, lights, computers,

power switch tail https://www.adafruit.com/products/268 safest and most convenient

Relay https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10924 you need to wire your high voltage through it so be super carefull

AC motors

Attributes: Cheap, strong, medium speed, hard to control speed, hard to reverse.

http://www.mcmaster.com/#ac-motors/=5yytj1gdt8igtyq137

Geared AC motors

Attributes: cheap, slow, very strong, hard to control speed, hard to reverse.

http://www.mcmaster.com/#ac-motors/=zr6bef (scroll down)

DC Motors

Attributes: Cheap , strong, very fast , you can control speed but not angle, reversible

https://www.adafruit.com/products/711

Geared DC motors

Attributes:  Very strong, slow , you can control speed but not angle, reversible https://www.servocity.com/html/micro_gearmotorblocks.html

DC motors with encoder

Attributes: Like DC motors but give you to feedback via optical encoder

https://www.servocity.com/html/3-12v_planetary_gear_motors_wi.html

Stepper motor

Attributes: medium speed, control speed, position, reversible

https://www.adafruit.com/products/324

Geared stepper motor

Attributes: slow, strong, control speed, position, reversible

https://www.adafruit.com/products/918

Servo

Attributes: slow, strong, control speed, position, reversible, 180 degrees , super easy to control

https://www.adafruit.com/products/155

More servos – https://www.servocity.com/html/servos___accessories.html

Continuous rotation 360 degree servo

Attributes: slow, strong, control speed, reversible, super easy to control

https://www.adafruit.com/products/154

Linear actuators

Attributes: Linear, limited stroke, expensive, control like DC motor, some have potentiometer feedback
https://www.servocity.com/html/12v_linear_actuators.html

Solenoids

Attributes: Super fast, super short stroke, momentary
