Remote Control Lawn Mower Motor

Question from customer:

I’m looking for an RC transmitter and receiver to operate the 4″ actuator a distance of 200ft for steering a lawnmower. Any suggestions?

700-590742

Answer:

We recommend the model of 500m/1500ft RF motor controller (S1FC-DC09/12/24 & CV-4-2). The controller is activated by DC 9V, 12V and 24V. It is usually for motors of rolling blinds, doors, projection screens, awnings, pumps, winches, conveyor or other appliances and mechanicals. It features in forward-reverse-stop capability which can make motor rotate in positive or reversal direction. With maximum transmission distance of 500m/1500ft, it can satisfy your requirement. Inner circuit of this kit uses the RF technology for making a wireless remote, which can make motor controlled by transmitter from any places with in reliable distance, this configured wireless signal can pass through walls, doors or floors or other solid obstacles.

Here is the wiring.

At first, we connect power line to terminals “+” and “-”. Secondly, we connect the receiver to the lawnmower actuator motor. Lawnmower actuator motor is wired to UP and DOWN terminals of receiver. At last, we add power supply to receiver. You can exchange “UP” and “DOWN” lines of the motor to change rotating direction of the motor.

There two working modes in it.

Set Momentary control mode: Do not connect Jumper.

Press and hold button ▲ on remote or receiver: Terminals UP and DOWN output + DC9V / DC12V / 24V (UP: +, DOWN: -), lawnmower actuatormotor rotates continuously in positive direction.

Release button ▲ on remote or receiver: Stop the motor.

Press and hold button ▼ on remote or receiver: Terminals UP and DOWN output - DC9V / DC12V / 24V (UP: -, DOWN: +), lawnmower actuatormotor rotates continuously in reversal direction.

Release button ▼ on remote or receiver: Stop the motor.

 

Set Latching control mode: connect the Jumper.

Press button ▲ on remote or receiver: Terminals UP and DOWN output + DC9V / DC12V / 24V (1: +, 2: -), lawnmower actuatormotor rotates continuously in positive direction.

Press ■ on remote or receiver: Stop the motor.

Press button ▼ on remote or receiver: Terminals UP and DOWN output - DC9V / DC12V / 24V (1: -, 2: +), lawnmower actuatormotor rotates continuously in reversal direction.

Press button ■ on remote or receiver: Stop the motor.

Question from customer:

“I received the item— 2 channel motor controller( S2PF-DC12+1CV-6-2) and installed it yesterday on my remote control lawn mower that I have made. Per the instructions for momentary control, I can get 1 motor to work at a time, either motor but only one and only in forward. I then changed, per your instructions for latch and each motor will go forward if started with remote, #1 and then #2 both will run forward only, but they cannot be controlled to go in the direction that I choose. Neither motor will reverse in any mode. I have to be able to control each motor independent of each other so I can drive the mower right and left to go the direction I want. Please advise!”

Answer:

You chose the 2 channel motor controller. Although the controller has two relays for two motor, two relays will work in the same mode. That is to say, your two motors only work in momentary mode or latched mode for one time. We recommend two sets of 1 channel dc motor controllers (S1PF-DC12+1CV-4-2), which is only 30amps output and 500m/1500ft transmission distance. It controls DC motors of rolling blinds / doors, projection screens, awnings, pumps, winches, conveyors or other appliances and mechanicals with voltage DC12V / 24V. There are two transmission frequencies, 315Mhz /433Mhz for this controller. You can install one controller set in 315Mhz to one motor, and install another controller set in 433Mhz to another motor, so that you can control each motor independent of each other. Each motor can be controlled by its only transmitter. It won’t generate any interference each other.

Usage:

Connect power supply DC12V / 24V to terminal “INPUT”; connect motor to terminal “OUTPUT”.

Setting control mode Latched: Do not connect Jumper-1 (CN1) or Jumper-2 (CN2)

Press button ▲: motor rotates in positive direction

Press button ■: motor stops

Press button ▼: motor rotates in reversal direction

Press button ■: motor stops

Setting control mode Momentary: Only connect Jumper-1 (CN1)

Press and hold button ▲: motor rotates in positive direction

Release button: motor stops

Press and hold button ▼: motor rotates in reversal direction

Release button: motor stops

Each receiver has two controlling modes, so you can set receiver 1 for latched mode and receiver 2 for momentary or set receiver 1 for momentary mode and receiver 2 for latched mode.
