Hi all
Im underway with concept planning for a low spec Classic car conversion with the DC forklift motor option and getting what I need for that.
First question is, I have a 72V DC 400a "Curtis" controller and looking at a pedal throttle running 0-5V not 0-5ohm as seems to be referred to in my research
Will they talk to each other?

Hi PeterC,
I think the answer to your question is dependent on the Curtis Controller that you have. You will need to find its part or model number and specific operating manual with wiring diagram.
My project is using a Curtis 1238 controller that can use either the potentiometer or the 0-5V throttle. I have chosen to use a 2nd generation Prius throttle pedal which is self contained assembly to provide the 0-5V input.
