    Starting a new project with Wheel chair gearbox motors, using BTS motor Driver and Arduino Uno board something i wanted to tick off my list when started motion platform.

    2 x Wheel Chair Motors. IMG_2820.JPG IMG_2818.JPG
    1 x Arduino board with Sensor shield.
    2 X BTX 7960 might upgrade to JRK12V12 controller in a later stage.
    2 x 500w desktop PSU.
    2 x Hall Sensor Pots.
    1 x USB Charger for 5v to sensor shield.

    Congratulation to the start of your project.
    Wheel chair motors are really strong and in my opinion a good choice. I am also using them.

    Just one comment about your plan to switch to Jrk 12v12: I would not recommend this. All wheel chair motors I saw so far are meant for 24V, and these controllers only support 12V.
    I did it the other way: Started with Jrk 12V12 with some 12V motors and then switched to wheel chair motors, controlled by an Arduino and Sabertooth 2x32.

    Thanks my gent, Reason im going 12v12 is that I already built a 2dof with 24V motors using the JRK 12v12.

    https://www.xsimulator.net/communit...k-12v12-project-sfx90-4dof.16656/#post-226503

    So far the 2Dof i built with JRK12v12 are working fine, evens under heavy load its runs smoothly with no latency. max the power and still runs proper just not ideal because less motion is more information.

    there still another option i would like to try is the Cytron MD13S controller but they out of stock, they extremely cheaper than JRK controllers
