I am still considering the 96 V / 600 A (peak) Kelly Controller on e-bay.=
It's now up to $200, which is still a lot less than new and a lot less =
than the Curtis 1231 that sold for $740 last week (I also bit on that), =
I think it will settle around $250-$300. One sold a few weeks back for $=
300.

Anyway, I am trying to figure out what the throttle input is on it. It i=
s the older model, but never used. On Cloud's website, it says the throt=
tle can be 0-5k, 5k-0 or 0-5V. But, I think that is wrong. My car has=
a 5k-0 (old GE SCR controller) and the pot is only 2 wire. I cannot add=
the 3rd wire as that it is sealed. Anyway, I have been trying to determ=
ine if that controller will work on 5k-0. I can't get the manual as that=
the link on their website is broken, They are on chinese new year, so t=
hey are unable to get it to me before Friday when the auction ends. Does=
anyone have the manual in PDF?

My intent was to replace my old (still working though) EV-1C SCR controller=
with this in my Jet Industries Electrica. The goal was to get a "better=
" more modern controller so that it would be easier to sell the car. I d=
on't actually plan to drive the car myself. For me, the SCR controller i=
s fine, but potential buyers don't like it. I don't want to change the p=
ot box. Too much work for the return on my investment. I had dropped =
in an Alltrax 7245 for teting and it worked with the 5k-0, but that is Allt=
rax, not Kelly. I thought the early Kelly models were also configurable,=
but I don't have the manual.

I think it is relatively simple to take a 2-wire
0-5k or 5k-0 pot and convert either into a 0-5V output.

Let me know if this will solve your issue and you
want me to draw up a circuit for you.
