As of August 2018 the State of California has changed the requirements of the Prop 65 law. We now must list on our website any possible chemicals the can cause cancer, birth defects or reproductive problem.
As an example:
ABS plastic contains styrene
PVC wire insulation can contain Di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (DEHP)
electrolytic capacitors can contain Ethylene glycol
Brass can contain Lead
flame retardant pc boards can contain Tetrabromobisphenol A (TBBPA)
Aluminum alloys can contain Chromium
To put it simply we are a small company and do not have the resources to test every single part, so we list every thing as hazardous. Please recycle all electronic parts responsibly and under no circumstance eat, drink or smoke these parts and wash your hands after touching!
works really well doesnt seem to reduce torque that bad.
good cheap solution for dc speed control
Great Motor Controller.
What can I say. Great motor controller for DC motors. It is now deployed as a sub assembly in our product. Fuse protected to our specifications.
After two 12 volt 12 amp power supplies fried, 20 amp fuse in ammmeter blew checking input load.
Hints in use
Nice variation is to use an audio taper or log taper pot instead of the linear for smoother control. You would do well to run the pot wires inside a shield if you go very far or near the motor leads. You dont want any switching trash to get back in. If youre mechanical, make it into a foot control.
Exactly what I wanted. Used it to control the speed of a 12 volt motor driving the table on my metal mill. Extended the control pot wires about 3 feet to mount in an easy to reach location. Speed adjusts smooth across the range. Good quality construction and parts. Connections were clearly and correctly marked. Not much else to say, it just works.
Does exactly what it said it would do and worked great .
