1. ## G201 and microkinetics 34m470

I want to make sure that i dont burn up my G201 drives.

looking at the spec sheet for the motors (34m470) i will need to wire up the motor in series that states rated current at 4.2amps and 3.5 volts (if set in parallel rated current is 8.4 amps and 1.75 volts (dont think the g201 will handle that (or i could be wrong))). when connecting is series the diagram show one a+ and one a- lead are joined together as one wire not connect to any thing and then you have one a+ and one a- to connect to term 3 and 4 (Same thing goes to the b+ and b- wires connecting to term 5 and 6)

is this wiring correct?

Data sheet on the motor.

Being that the motor set at series is rated at 4.2 amps and rated volts are 3.5 volts do i have to use a resister for 4 or 5 amps?

the last question is on the capacitors for the 24 vdc, this is connected at the drive itself with the power lines itself (meaning that the power lines and the capacitor leads connectto the same point when it screws down on term 1 and 2)?

2. ## motor wires set in series

OK i find the info was correct in what i was asking in the first part and heres the way its connected.

a+ Orange
a- Orange - White ----] these two wires are connected together soldered
a+ Black-White ----] and shrink tubbed or taped (doesnt goto to Drive)
a- Black

b+ Red
b- Red-White ----] these two wires are connected together soldered
b+ Yellow-White ----] and shrink tubbed or taped (doesnt goto to Drive)
b- Yellow

Still wondering about the other questions on the first post.
