A schematic diagram of the motor controller is shown here.
P1 is a connector for the five wires from the position sensor. The sensor used is a US Digital Type E6 sensor.
P2 is a 3-wire connector to connect to a 5vdc power supply.
RC1 is a 34-wire ribbon connector like the one on a Coridium ARM Basic Board. The pin numbers are the same on both ends of the ribbon cable.
P4 is a five-wire connector to connect to the motor and AC power.
Pin 1: AC supply hot line
Pin 2: Motor CW hot line
Pin 3: Motor CCW hot line
Pin 4: Motor common line
Pin 5: Supply common line
The motor I used is a Bodine 5625 capacitor-reversible motor. It is rated to withstand a complete stall indefinitely. It can be operated at voltages
lower than the rated 120 vac with correspondingly lower torque. When used with the Victorian Steam Chaotron, I apply 48 vac stepped down by
a transformer from the 120 vac utility voltage. This motor has a shaft extending from the case on both ends. The angle position sensor is mounted
on one end of the shaft and the Chaotron arm is mounted on the opposite end.
