    I have already started my 4dof project using a 12 or 24V DC motor.
    I will use the engine specified below and would like help in choosing which would be the best option to control these engines and which power supply would suit the 4 engines.
    Is it possible with simtools to work 4dof? which controller card is recommended?
    Thanks.

    Engine characteristics:
    - Nominal voltage UN: 12 or 24 V
    - PN rated power: 54 W
    - Rated current IN: 5 A
    - Maximum current Imax: 58 A
    - Nominal speed NN: 82 rpm
    - Nominal torque MN: 10 Nm
    - Tightening torque MA: 35 Nm
    - Reduction i: 1:55
    - Direction of rotation: clockwise and counterclockwise
    - Protection type: IP 23
    - Weight: 1.3 Kg
    - Worm material: SAE 1045
    - Crown Material: Polyacetal

    Do you have a link to the motors you plan to use, as they do not look to be particularly powerful, and I am also not sure of the intended linear actuator speed?

    It's ok. Follow the link for the DC motor. It was the most powerful one I found for sale in Brazil. I am understanding the components to assemble the prototype in order to verify the performance.
