DC motor and Simucube

#1

Hi!

I am new to Simucube, and have one question regarding motors and wiring.
The AC motor wiring looks straight forward.

But…
Can i use a brushed DC motor with Simucube, and how to wire this if possible?

Motor is rated 48v 480w

I have used an Leonardo with H-bridge and got it to work, but only on 24v. And motor is running to hot. It melts PLA.

So want to get proper hardware!!

We have not tested DC motors with Simucube, and do not recommend it. However, please consult here:
