Default club car regen controller '97 to '01

I am new to this forum and looking for help in taking a club car Power Drive Plus (Regen II) controller and using it to control a 12V winch motor.

What I need is information on how to and what else I would need to vary the output voltage of the controller.

I am trying to use 12 to 24 dcv as input and vary the output voltage to motor.

Thanks, Mardig

why would you want to vary the input to a 12v winch motor ?
they are made to use 12v of power... more volts will burn the motor up .. less than 12v will also harm them too

.

So putting a 36 volt motor in a 48 volt system will burn it up?
And a 48 volt motor in a 36 volt cart will harm it also ?

OK!
A controller does not vary voltage it varies the pulse width so disregard this, now a winch motor is not a regen motor so that controller would not work.

Greg-g,

You're comparing a light duty motor to a heavy duty motor. The windings and armature in a Winch Motor are not made like the ones in a Golf Cart motor, and the variances in voltage will damage them.

Winches get their power from gearing and are made to run at a constant voltage for short periods of time. If you put too much or too little voltage into the motor on a winch, or run the winch for too long of a time without giving it a cool down period, the windings will melt because they are physically smaller than the ones on a Golf Cart motor.

Scott reread my post controllers do NOT vary voltage that's the key here.

Greg-g, I saw the statement about the controller. My post was towards your saying that running a Golf Cart motor on the wrong voltage will burn the motor up like it would if you ran a winch motor on the wrong voltage.

Mardig, I'm glad you have your answer as to why it wouldn't be a good idea to run the motor on a lower voltage. The only way to slow it down is to swap the gearing unfortunately.
