DC Motor Speed Control
Model GSK-804
This circuit allows the user to vary the speed of a DC motor
from a stop position to maximum revolutions per motor
Technical Specifications
nPower source: 12 VDC
nLoad voltage: 12 VDC, 1.5 A max.
nOutput: controlled DC motor by pulse width modulation
nPCB dimensions: 1.76 x 1.32 inches
Operating Principles
Integrated circuit oscillates the frequency at 264 Hz relative
to resistors 1, 2, and 3, variable resistor 1 and capacitor 1.
VR1 provides adjustment of duty. If the plus duty is more
than the minus duty the motor will slow down. Frequency
will be transmitted through IC to resistor 4 and the base of
transistor 1 making TR1 function as adjustment of VR1.
Frequency =
T1 = 0.693 (R1+R2) C1
= 0.693 (10K+5K) x 0.01
= 103.95 Hz
T2 = 0.693 (VR1+R3) C1
= 0.693 (500K+30K) x 0.01
= 3,762.90 Hz
Frequency = 264.7709 Hz
PCB Assembly
Please refer to Figures 1, 2, and 3 for aid in component
placement. It is recommended to start with lower components
i.e. diodes, resisters, electrolyte capacitors, and transistors.
Be careful to check polarity with Figure 3 before soldering.
Take extra precaution to ensure electrolytic capacitors are
inserted correctly. If a problem is detected it is best too use a
desoldering pump or desoldering braids to remove component.
This will minimize potential damage to the printed circuit board.
Connect 12 VDC motor to theOUT” terminals of PCB. Connect
power source and adjust speed by turning potentiometer
counterclockwise to slow motor and clockwise to speed motor
up. If load voltage is sustained above 800 mA circuit should be
ventilated. Maximum load is 1.5 A.
The main cause of problems will come from misplaced
components or faulty soldering. Utilize Figures 1, 2 and 3
to ensure proper placement, polarity and then check solder
points for connectivity.
