    Your pots aren't going to be variable if you don't connect the wipers... :eyebrow:

    Connect the wiper to the top end of the pot, should go faster when you turn clockwise. I think nox-silicons will go slower as you turn the pot clockwise, he's got wiper to ground end of pot. :confused:

    Anyway, looking at the shaft side, pins down, the left pin and middle pin should be used, middle can be linked to RH pin.

    It gives breif discriptions of spec for each. Plus theres some example circuits, copy and paste is your friend!

    Do you get the 'Metro-Link'?, god i've been on that thing 3 times to oxford road, it crashed/scraped a car 2 of those:blah:

    Can't find it on their site. :confused: Got a code?

    edit: found it. N29AJ, not quite on site. Free demo here.

    The other ones they do (Cadpack) include Proteus Lite, free nagging version from Labcenter Electronics

    Them Welshmen must be abusing them. Reply "Baaaaa..."

    It's worth adding some caps as shown on the data sheet, a 317T can, under the wrong circumstances, turn into a radio transmitter. ;)

    One thing, if you model the CircuitMaker schematic you've done, change those DC Motors to 50-ohm resistors, a bit more like a case fan than a 100H inductor.

    I use MultiSim for my simulation and analysis needs. The full version is rather expensive, but a Student Suite can be had bundled with a lot of different DC Circuit Analysis texts. It's DEFINITELY worth the money, which I believe is around $90.

    Ah yes, linkage: http://www.electronicsworkbench.com/html/eduprodc.html

    I'm using Multisim aswell for simulation. I use a really old prog called automate, which includes autocap for circuit design and ultiboard for PCBs. It does autoroute but you can do it manually aswell.

    Never realized I'm using high priced software ;o
