Hi,

I need to control two wheelchair motors. These are powered by a 25.6 LiFePo4 at a large possible number of amps at stall.

Is the Orion Robotics RoboClaw 2x30 a reasonable solution for motor control? It has a number of desirable features such as encoder decoding and a number of different input types. It also handles two motors.

Thanks in advance.

If the stall of your motors is on the order of 30 Amps, then that would be a good choice. I'm using RoboClaws (plural) in my rover, although lower-rated ones because I use lower-rated motors.
