Feeder Motor Control on a Pocono.

Feeder motor control on a Pocono.

PostBy: 404 On: Thu Nov 13, 2014 10:24 pm

Does the Coal-Trol always run the feeder motor at full power during the motor on cycle interval? Or does it ever try to slow down or reduce power to the feeder motor rpm by PWM (or triac chopping).

Thanks for any info or comment,

It runs it at a constant rate. This thread explains it in detail.
