Hi Stan,
 
That looks to me, like a Professor Motor controller.
 
Here's a LINK to their controllers,  
 
Hope this helps.

I agree... Professor Motor. They're really good about helping identify their controllers, too. Reach out to them directly. Their email contact is

support@professormotor.com

 

They will want pics of both sides, perhaps with the handle open, too, so be prepared.

What kind of info do you want?
 
Or did you just want to know the brand?

More like a modified Professor Motor because of the third knob and that big screw in the back.

Where did you see it for more info?  Might just be a custom controller with a PM handle.

Thanks all! Looks to be a custom PM. Nothing similar on their site.

Stan, do you have a picture of the other side of the controller?

For sure modified.  My PM controller has a bunch of custom and experimental features, but to my knowledge any time Rick (long time tech but retired a few years ago) added a third knob it was on the opposite side of the controller.  The third knob was for adjusting coarse sensitivity, and the standard knob was for fine sensitivity.  Brake knob (red end) was unchanged.

Jim, my go to controllers are all Difalcos😃
Just saw the PM controller online and was curious about it.

Anyone else that has a modified PM controller?
Interested in seeing the mods on them and what they are for. Thanks.
