PWM/CNC Washing Machine Motor Controller

The basic controller has been extended to enable it to be controlled by a CNC program .This icreases its versitility enabling it to be controlled by PC using the parallel interface or a micro-processor generating PWM. The speed controller is now available as a kit with ready wired/tested PCB. Prices are £45 without the mains filter, fitted and supplied by the user from the donor washing machine (£10 separately) . This is still not for the beginner, advanced mechanical and electrical skills are needed.

There is also a CNC controller under development to allow other brushed universal motors without a tacho generator to be used so watch this space. It will use an opto-coupler.

You may want to control the draught in a furness or the cutting speed of a lathe tool or mill. This box of tricks has the capability. It has initially used with Zeus CNC program but should work from Mach 3 or 4 with PWM function. It may also be operated from Agilent VEE or National instruments Lab Windows via a microcontroller.
