motor controller

When I was younger reverse engineering was fun but now I am older and I guess less patient. But this one may be interesting. That was my post in ...

DC motor controller

I picked up and old wheel chair and got the motor controller out of it. I wanted to try and use it for a soft start controller for an auto starter motor. I have a gyrocopter that uses a 24 foot , free spinning rotor blades. I presently use a starter motor to start it spinning, but you have to moment...

Wheel chair motor controller

Does anyone know a site that I can go to and get technical info and a schematic on an INVACARE wheel chair controller?
It is MKIV GB Mod. 1109528

I did a web search and had lots of their company sites but no technical.
Any site that has info on these controllers would be of help.

Thanks

555

I built a 555 timer mono stabe(one shot?
It times for 6 sec and powers a relay. Works fine. Except when I first power the ckt up the timer starts its cycle. And if there is power surge, lights blink etc it self triggers. How can I make it work ONLY when a low is put to pin 2?
Thanks

Do you want a fixed ramp-up to a set slow speed, or do you want full control of the motor speed, with for example, a potentiometer? Is this a full size automobile gas engine that you're spinning? Curtis Instruments makes great DC motor controllers, but that may be overkill, depending on your needs....

HIGH TORQUE DC MOTOR CONTROLLER

I need a controller to soft start an auto engine starter and increase the rpm's
to full. This is to turn an auto engine, not for cranking, but to be able to watch the moving parts of the engine. Where to purchase a controller or the schematic to build one would be of great help. Thanks

Ground fault

Do you have anything else plugged into the same outlet? A power strip?
I have seen one that was wired wrong.
