12V-24V PWM Motor controller circuit using TL494 and IRF1405

This is the high quality 12V-24V PWM Motor controller circuit using TL494-IRF1405 for that has the low voltage battery checker system, working with soft start, adjust pulse frequency, use for 12V or 24V battery at current up to 20A. Although small and simple, but could be easily used to create an easy, no need to program software.
There are 2 Circuits below!

12V DC motor speed control PWM circuit using TL494

This is 12V DC motor speed control PWM circuit. Which using a TL494 (Switchmode Pulse Width Modulation Control IC) is base for control DC Motor with pulse.

Please detail more:
– For Control speed motor 12V 150Wmax 15A.
– R6 adjust speed motor.
– Driver Motor by Mosfet IRFZ48.x 2pcs.
– Control at Frequency 100HZ
– Adjust PWM duty cycle From 0 to 100%
– Rise and fall time = 10uS
– There is over load current 15A or current limit with current flowing throw R11 and Q1 work to stop IC1
