I have this brushless DC motor controller with four outputs (COM, W, U, V), and a hard disk DC motor that I want to control. The problem is that the motor has 12 inputs, and I have no idea how to identify which one is which... is there like a color code? Otherwise, how do I test?

Perhaps I should remove the PCB board and that will reveal four pins? The PCB is glued, the only way to remove it is by destroying it.
