Solar 250 Cassette Rotator DIY


Recommended Posts

Hello all,


I've got a 5RPM Cassette Rotator which I need to go at 2 1/2 RPM. Is it just a case of fitting an appropriate resistor to its feed?


Or am I gonna be fiddling with gears/cogs etc?


Many Thanks,

The Solar 250 cassettes use synchronous motors which are locked to the mains frequency. So, as someone else has said, you need a different gearbox, you cant just change the motor current with a resistor.
