My son an I are attempting to cannibalize a printer a HP LaserJet 1300. It used to work and print, but it was low on toner and the company we got it from replaced it instead of buying new toner.
So, we have some parts and are trying to build a centrifuge (the low tech version) using the motor inside the printer. It is a Nidec RK2-0063 45M0600024 24VDC 1.4A. You can see what it looks like here: http://www.kpsurplus.com/hp-printer-nidec-rk2-0063-main-motor-45m0600024-24v1-4a.html
Anyway, we have been drawing a blank on finding a datasheet for this motor/control assembly. The 5 pin connector has a pinout of Vcc FG /DEC /ACC GND but we don't know what FG means, and don't know what to feed it on /ACC and /DEC
Vcc -> Gnd is ~24 VDC which is to be expected since it is a 24 volt motor, but what are the other pins for/what voltages should we use to control the motor.
What kind of motor would you call this?
