I am using a motor-controller https://www.ghielectronics.com/catalog/product/315 to control af motor from my board. But there is the option of controlling two motors from the module, which i would not need.
I also have a permanent magnet, that needs 12VDC to release, which I planned to use X1 Relay https://www.ghielectronics.com/catalog/product/464
But now I am thinking why not use the motor controller to feed the magnet with two seconds of juice and then zero - when I need the release.
Will the magnet or the motor-module be damaged by doing that, and what is the drawbacks?
