Introduction: Little Controll Box

Picture of Little Controll Box

hello, this is a little project I've been wanting to do for a while, turned out good enough i decided to make a little instructable about it it can be used for plotters robots or other things, i mostly use it for prototyping and hot wiring

Step 1: Why

Picture of Why

the idea came to me while i was taking apart a printer, one of the things i like to do when i take things apart is hot wire the motors or lights or whatever and play with it before completely salvaging the parts, trouble is if your playing with dc motors you have to flip the wires every time you switch direction

Step 2: The Circut

sorry its a little crowded, this uses 2 DPDT switches but you can have as may as you want, i left a spot for expansion on mine

Step 3: Assembly

i found an old project box, a bus bar and a few other things in my scrap box, the only thing i had to buy were the switches

Step 4: That's It

This is neat... thanks for posting. I made something similar once, but only to reverse polarity on an electric motor. Actually had a 'forward' / 'reverse' switch made:

Wasn't as complex though... what are you going to use this for?

my wookie made it! (author)remembervhs2015-09-15

i used to use this for this little tank, right now i've got it hot wired to the printer and ive been playing with manually sending paper through it and drawing on it with a sharpie, hopefully i will be able to turn it into a 3 axis CNC controller
