What kind of motor should I use?

Hello all,

My project involves a pressure sensor, a hinge and a motor that controls the spinning of the hinge. The motor’s behavior is, when the pressure sensor is triggered, the hinge would become unspinnable. When the pressure sensor is in off status, the hinge spins free. This is kind of entrance control project. What kind of motor should I use here? Thank you very much!

Hi @onekidmom :slight_smile:

I can’t say I’ve ever seen a spinning hinge. Maybe you could tell us more about it?

If you’re looking for a motor that spins 360 degrees and is reversible, go with the dc motor


If you’re looking for a motor to go back and forth or be turned to a specific position, try the servo motor
