trolling motor speed control (need help)

Post by marwan.abdelnaby »

Dear members,

I need help

I have just purchased a trolling motor (conventional ) without maximizer,
and I have built my own PWM control circuit, but when I opened the upper part
of the trolling motor ,I found 4 terminals (black, yellow, red and blue).

I don't know how to connect it to my 2 terminals PWM control circuit.

I am waiting for your response

Thanks in advance

My older Minn Kota has 4 wires in the control. They wire directly to the motor windings and the speed is stepped not continously variable. This may be the case with your motor.
