MFA Motor Speed Regulation Unit

• Motor speed controller unit
• Allows you to vary output voltage from 0 to the input voltage
• Operating voltage between 6V and 15V
• Pulse width modulation for reduced power loss in the output
• 21cm input and output cables

How can I use this speed regulator?

The speed regulator comes with an input cable with insulated spade connector to attach to a battery or similar DC (non digital supply) and output cables to attach to your project. The controller can vary the speed between 0 to the input voltage adjustable using the supplied miniature slotted screwdriver. The speed regulator can run off a 6-15V power supply or battery and power devices up to 15V dependant on input. With its contained design this regulator is handy for moving between multiple projects. Power width modulation reduces power loss in the transfer, provides a proportional output control and assists with maintaining torque.

Hi Can I connect 2 motors to one controller so that they can be controlled simultaneously and have full range of control, or do I need to use 1 controller per motor.
