Need manuals for BLD224-S

Anyone have the manuals for a BLD224-S Brushless Motor Speed Control Driver and a BL315GK-24S Motor? Both are Vexta products. I have been all over the internet with no luck.

The main reason I need the manual is so I can hook up the external pot. I am hooking it up per the picture on the top of the controller, but I don't have any speed control. Nor do I have any speed control with the on board speed control pot. Also, if I don't install an external pot the motor won't run.

Hi wmayhugh,

Please see attached for the BLS series brushless motor/driver datasheet which includes the information you need. See page 2 for information on external potentiometer, internal potentiometer, and external analog voltage. All 3 can be used to set the speed of your motor.

For external potentiometer, you would wire your 20 Kohm, 1/4W potentiometer's 3 terminals to driver screw terminals 5, 6, and 7. Both the START/STOP, RUN/BRAKE inputs need to be ON in order for the motor to rotate.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks for the docs and the information. I'm a little embarrassed :oops: to say that the 2 motor units I have had crimped brown wires which caused the motor to ignor the speed control. Once I fixed that, everything worked correctily. The info for the onboard speed control was worth the wait.
