I need wirless buttons a total of 10buttons, on 5 motors. each motor having a wirless button for reverse and forward. and when no button being pressed the motors need to be off.

Default RE: please help

well i am working on this project, its like a space ship (dont want to go into too much detail) inside the controlls including the wirless buttons. I believe i need 10 buttons two per motor for each of its function (forward and reverse). On the outside the 5 motors. And one of my main goals is so there wouldnt be any wires going from these wires into the space ship.

please any help would be nice, price i dont want to spend too much but i want to know my possiblities. please post links to what i might need.

Thanks alot.

When you say wireless buttons, do you mean you will have some sort of hand control unit that you're operating and the state of the buttons you press is transmitted to your receiving unit that is interfaced to the motor controller? Are your motors DC or Stepper and what kind of voltage and current do they require to run?

I don't know what type of controller you have have experience programming but if you're open, check this out:

http://focus.ti.com/docs/toolsw/fold...30-rf2500.html

It's only $49.00

I also suggest looking at AllegroMicro for motor control IC's. Depending on what kind of power you need to run five motors than you're going to need some "smart" motor driver IC's hooked to a microcontroller. TI also has a MSP430 development kit that is somewhere between $49 and $99. If you choose that MSP430-RF2500 you're probably going to be forced to use all MSP430 type kits/parts.

By the way Allegro is pretty good about sampling parts so check them out.

Hope this helps. Good luck.

My suggestions are targeted toward an "embedded" hardware and software solution approach. Not RC specific where you are using an RC TX/RX to move your motors. Embedded means using a microcontroller (any kind) and the above approach takes advantage of the Zigbee wireless protocol and infrastructure that Texas Instruments is supporting. I believe that Motorola/Freescale has similar Zigbee wireless development kits.
