Wanting to run the following motor using a 12V (car battery)

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

I am hoping to run the following motor using a 12v (car battery).

This battery would run until a charge is needed

Just curious on what's needed for an Inverter and how easily/cheap it could be accomplished..

Motor specs


FHP-Motors

1~mot. 100w
115v 50/60 MHz

I'm novice in this area, let me know if more information is needed

hi there
welcome to PF :smile:

is the motor going to be running continuously or will it be lots of start/stopping during use ?
if start/stopping, please give some idea of on time Vs off time

these things will determine inverter requirements

cheers

I'm hoping to power a small riding toy for my son, that being said there will be plenty of start & stopping periods..


And thanks for the quick response

OK ... there's going to be lots of losses using an inverter to step up to 115V, this will cut down battery life

have you looked into DC motors ?

I just happened to come across this motor for a reasonable price. I'm hoping (for this project) to get even a 1/2 hour to an hour of running time.. If it's unlikely, then I'll just move on to another project :)

don't give up so easily :wink:

do some googling on 12VDC motors with wattage rating of say 150 - 250 W
have a look and see what is available

cheers

RC Motors have a lot of variety and are in a competitive consumer market - keeping prices down. The other option is look for used - child riding toys / broken or otherwise and re-use.
