Treadmill DC Motor Control Answered
I have been given a treadmill motor by a friend, sadly none of the control boards have come with it, just the motor and a transformer bolted to the same bracket.
I'm hoping someone can tell me the best way for a layman to hook this up for variable speed, as I would like to improve on my 1/4hp single phase motor currently attached to my lathe.
I don't know much about the motor and could not find a datasheet, but a pic is attached.
Is there any plug and play options that don't cost the earth, ideally i would like to be able to plug it into the mains (UK) and just control with a pot.
As always thanks in advance, you guys make this place a great resource for us noobs.
