Control the speed of a DC motor in both the forward and reverse direction, from fully OFF to fully ON in either direction, using the single potentiometer. Uses a pseudo pulse width modulation technique for maximum motor torque.
This system eliminates the danger of damage to both the control board and motor that is associated with sudden voltage reversals possible in boards that have just a simple DPDT polarity switch. With our controller, turning the pot in one direction causes the motor to start spinning. Turning the pot in the other direction causes the motor to spin in the opposite direction.
Voltage: The kit and motor use the same power supply. The maximum input voltage is 28Vdc.
Current: The maximum current for this board is 5 Amps. An 8A protection fuse (not included) should be fitted to the positive power supply line (V+) to protect the board from excess current..
Power Supply: The board is only suitable for use with a regulated DC power supply. It is NOT suitable for use with lead acid batteries (board will be destroyed due to excess current regardless of the load connected).
PRODUCT SELECTION NOTES: The motor controller should have an output load capacity at least 25% above the motors peak power requirement. Please do NOT rely on motor rating plates for power consumption figures as they often quote average not peak power. You should verify the actual peak power at start-up and under full load before selecting an appropriate size motor controller.Specifications
