Product Description

Speed Controller / Dimmer 110V / 240V

Manufacturers Notes...M012

Loads of applications! ...regulates incandescent lamps, heaters, hand drills, motors etc. via a potentiometer. Operating voltage: 110...240V~. Max. admissible current: 6 amperes (3A constant duty). At 230V~ this corresponds to 1200 / 600W and to 600 / 300W at 110V~.
Available attachments: auxiliary module M150 DC and Pulse Converter. When superposing this module, it also possible to control the dimmer module M012 with control voltages (1..5V= or 3...12V= or 6..24V=) or with TTL pulses.

The controller can only be used to control the speed of a 1ph, AC electric motor providing that the motor does NOT have an internal centrifugal switch.

  1. Great Speed Control with Small AC Motor

    Posted by Unknown on 24th Oct 2013

    Bought to replace the standard resistive foot pedal controller on a vintage domestic sewing machine. MUCH better slow speed control now, will stitch at a 'stitch by stitch' slow speed with much more torque. Built a custom 470ohm foot controller to go with it, motor stays cool, module stays cool, a perfect solution for the control of a small 50w AC motor, well worth going to the trouble to build it, well happy.

  2. Very good controller

    Posted by Garth Kennedy on 8th Apr 2013

    I have hooked this up to a 220v one horse capacitor start, drill motor. I wanted to be able to drop the minimum speed available with the pulleys. The controller does that rather well. I don't have the full range of variation available on the pot. but I presume that is because of the capacitor on the drill.
    I'm very pleased with my purchase!
