DC motor Control


Thread Starter

Heather Bozzard

I'm currently looking at the best methods to control a 0-90VDC 1/8 HP motor. I was looking at using a simple Dimmer application and converting the voltage to DC but I'm worried about the motor load causing problems and false trigering of the triac. Can anyone suggest an alternative. Thank you.
Respondng to Heather's query:

Get Radio Shack's publication, "Getting Started in Electronics!" It is Orer No. 62-5003.

The booklet has several simple, and reliable, variable DC circuits using FET's.
