Hi,

I am trying to design a circuit for an Arduino board, or any board, does not necessarily have to be Arduino.

I am putting a mod into my vehicle for an electronic turbo using an electronic RC Jet fan (EDF). I need to activate the ESC controller for the RC motor using my vehicle's throttle position signal which operates at 0.35-4.65 volts. The BEC that activates the ESC is at about 5V.

Any ideas?

Thanks

You might be after something like https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/ts ... 1615791300 - also be sure to read about how they operate here https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/in ... 1615791300

Just as an aside...depending on the car and motor, it looks like most EDFs will move around the amount of air needing at max RPM...so you might not end up getting any PSI 'boost', if those numbers are close

I'd calculate the CFM your motor moves https://www.widman.biz/English/Calculators/CFM.html and compare that to the specs of your selected EDF before going further ;-)
