Default protrak

A question for anybody with the motor run in attachment:

Is this just a motor stand with an adapter to change the connections to crocodile clips or is there some actual circuitry in the assembly?
I want to know if I can power my comm lathe with the motor run in function on the charger without buying the adapter.

You can't power your comm lathe like you can with the Turbo 35. The motor run-in feature is a programmed 'pulsing' of the motor.....not good for cutting comms!!

Your best bet is to contact Phil of Pro-Trak direct on the following address.

DW- i saw cosgrove using the run-in to break in a motor without the stand so i guess theres no circuitry in there but dtm is right, it pulses to the motor so not good for comms.

There is a circuitry inside the run-in assembly, I think its for smoothing out the voltage for the motor. Maybe also for protecting the Protrak from voltage spikes.
