My PB-6 clone from india is here. Looks a 'bit' cheesy and weak,
but tests out ok.

Pictures: http://www.nn.cl/Autos/EV/PB6/

Question: I have a 1204-410 curtis that needs the third wire for the pot
to be connected to -48. Is there a way to make that work without opening
the PB6-clone and soldering another wire?

thanks,

is your curtis 1204 have a 0-5k input or 5-0k input?

either way, I ended up not using the INDIAN pb-6. It
has 3 leads on the pot,

BUT! It's a 20K pot that's made to work only from
0-5K.
the other lead with give 5-20K so the grand total is
always is 20K ohms.

Since I had a real curtis potbox I used that
instead...I didn't want to mess with it.

With my Curtis 1204 it needed a 5k-0 input.
So I added a wire to the 3rd lead on the pot.
That wire and the common wire went to the 2 and 3 on
the controller connection.

And then the original wire went to B-

Go figure this controller was set up for the Club Car.

mines only has 2 leads coming out of the box. I'll
crack it open and check inside.
