DC Brushed Motor with a ViX

Below is the procedure to connect a DC brushed motor to a ViX drive. The sinusoudal commutation feature of these drives will not be envoked since the hall states to not change.

1)Connect the drive terminals HALL 1 and HALL 2 to HALL GND
2)Make no connections to drive terminal HALL 3
3)Connect the drive's Phase A to your motor's positive input.
4)Connect the drive's Phase C to your motor's negative input.

Make sure the Z-channel from the encoder is disconnected from the ViX because the ViX uses it for commutating with the encoder.
