How do i wire up a brand new 2.5hp treadmill motor & speed controller ? Answered
Hello there and greetings,
I've just bought from ebay, a brand new replacement motor and shiny new speed controller for a treadmill.
The motor is a PM DC cont. duty, 2.5hp @ 230VDC, 9.5Amps. It has 4 wires coming out of it, Red, Black (connected to the brushes on the motor), and two blue&white wires which are connected together using spade connectors.
The speed controller board is fiited inside an aluminium heat sink case. It has 7 male spade connectors protruding and they are labelled:
LG3: ..................(Earth Ground)
I'm afraid i don't possess the know-how although i'm quite handy and have some faded kowledge of electrics and electronics but i'm afraid im not too sure how to hook it up. Also could someone tell me what kind of power supply i need for this setup.
Much appreciated and many thanks in advance.
