I am an art student working on a steam-punkish project that will require 5 motors that need to carry realatively little load. They will each be turning a rotary selector switch.
(I know that I can easily program sequenced switching with a microcontroller... but remember this art!...)
I would like the motors to have variable speed control. I know enough to realize I will be needing DC motors to accomplish this.
I would like the RPMs to range from 1 to about 100. When looking at the products listed on the site the RPMs are something crazy like 5200. I'm supposed that that once a load is put on these motors they will slow down. I am not sure though.
Can somebody point me to the appropriate dc motors? In summary, my needs are as follows:
- 5 DC motors with variable speed control ranging from about 1 rpm to about 100 rpm (it does not need to be exact)
- easy mountable
- they need to be able to carry a relatively light load... about the strength required to turn a radio knob.
- appropriate DC adapters so I can plug into a standard US power outlet. The piece will be displayed in a gallery so I do not want to have to change batteries all the time.
