The speed of a motor depends on the average voltage applied to it, and the PWM method is a way of controlling this average voltage. It’s energy efficient because the transistors are either completely off or on. Figure 3-7. PWM for motor at power level 35% With the standard firmware, the length of the cycle is 128μs. This corresponds to a 7800Hz frequency, which is an audible frequency that can sometimes be heard as a high-pitched whistling. The 128μs length of cycle allows a much better linearity of the command than the one used by the RCX.
This operation is illustrated in Figure 3-14. The sides and the top must be covered, but obviously not the bottom that contains the contacts. The method is simple, but not very reliable, because there is no lock and it can be easily pulled out. Figure 3-12. Filing off the latch Figure 3-13.

Just connect one wire to each screw and you’re ready to go.
