Hi, I'm new to all of this and I am absolutely overwhelmed by all the information and data that is available. Long and short, I need a little help. I have a 170-501-001 D&D Motor and can't even definitively determine if it is a SHUNT or a SERIES motor. I guess that would be my 1st question...how can I tell if the motor is a SHUNT or SERIES wound motor. I've seen on other forums that SHUNT motors have A1, A2, F1, and F2 terminal and that SERIES have A1, A2, S1, and S2...is this true? Can I rely on that? Is there some other definitive way to tell?
OK, next I have a SEVCON SEM POWERPAK controller. Now, I realize some people have various opinions about motors and controllers, but this is what I have to work with. Maybe next time I'll do something else, but for now, this is what I've got. I have the PowerPC software along with the key and can share that info with anyone that needs it, BUT...how do I wire this sucker up?? It has F1, F2, B+, B-, A and S with R copper lugged to B+.
Look, I'll admit I'm currently over my head. I just need a little guidance...I'm really not stupid. Any light that any one can shed will be appreciated. Thanks, CHUCK
