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.

Send a message via ICQ to dtm

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.

He's always ready to help people with his product.

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 itīs for smoothing out the voltage for the motor. Maybe also for protecting the Protrak from voltage spikes.
