MOTION CONTROLLER for a sliding gate application. It uses a two phase AC LIM (Linear Induction Motor). A capacitor allows powering from one-phase household power supply. No frequency inverter will be used for speed control (two fixed speeds: [url removed, login to view] and [url removed, login to view]). Of course, additional functions characteristic to any sliding gate should be implemented. Literature on using microcontrollers for this specific application available.
