I bought a used, 20 year old mobility scooter that I want to convert in to a powered wheelbarrow. The motor on its own works fine but the old technology controller is gone...I know there is tons of controllers on the market now that are cheap to buy....I just don't know which one I would need to control this dc motor??
The motor is 22v / 15 amps. So I guess it is 330 watts. It is reversible. I am looking for a decent, economical and SIMPLE controller that I can buy on line. I live in Ontario Canada.
One of the sites I looked on was "Monster scooter parts" I don't know where they are but they have a universal 24v/500 watt controller for $33.00. I believe its their "YK48-2"
Would this be all I need? Would it be meant for a permanent magnet motor like the one I have? The controller doesn't say that it has a reversing feature which I need!
Any ideas or other options that you can help me with would be greatly appreciated.
