      What does this do?
      The problem is usually harder to find than to fix.

            nice kat! for some reason tho..., i've never had any luck with those lewis ssss's? i've never tried them for the b.e., just combos. some love em', some hate em'. i have all ssss's from stahls now for combos. is there a way to wire them for the b.e. too? just curious [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/cool.gif[/img]
            Don't mind me, what you read is invisible.

                <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Sure. You need higher-rated SSSS, but the principle is exactly the same. Backend motors are basically the same as combos; the difference is how it's used: runs continously, and it has no electric brake. The switch should come with instructions for wiring into a BE motor. It's as easy (and very similar) to the combo wiring.

                Cheers,
                Andrew.

                  I think it is a shame that your going out of your way to show Wang your backend and he can't even take a look and comment.
                  I think it looks great.

                    Interesting Kat. I assume that you had to run a 3 conductor cable to the BE motor for this type of installation.

                    With regards to the Lewus SSSS….I like them for my BE’s and Combos due to the fact they are adjustable, require no wiring changes up front and outlast Quality’s SSSS.

                    From my understanding, these SSSS don’t work very well on GE’s and Westinghouse Combos to prevent drifting. They work fine on Nationals because of the constant friction created by the brake disk and carbon brushes. The instructions clearly state that this switch does not eliminate the need for carbon brushes.

                      Triac:

                      Yes, I did run a 3-conductor SJO to the BE motor. I haven't tried the Lewus SSSS on my Westinghouse combos because of some horror stories I've heard both from here at BT and locally. They work very well on the BEs and can be adjusted like you said.

                        Hey well look, Drill, I thought it was funny even if none of these other guys did.

                        BTW, that really is a nice backend you've got there, Kat!

                          Looks good Kat. I will be sending your switches and pulleys out Monday. Hopefully they will work for you.

                            <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">The mechanical loading of the GE combo main shaft should be enough to prevent drifting (i.e. movement of the motor after the electric brake has stopped it).

                            If motors are not stopping fully, perhaps the brake circuit is faulty or the start switch is turning off too early (and putting the start winding back into the circuit before the motor stops).

                            You mentioned these Lewus SSs are adjustable - do you know if they are timer-based or something else?

                            Cheers,
                            Andrew.

                              <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">They are adjustable based on the HP of the motor. They come factory set for 1/3 HP motors.
