MW LDH-45A-700W power supply?

I just found a new MW LDH-45A-700W lying around in my workshop bits N Bobs box.
My question is can I use it as a simple speed controller on a LV motor by putting a pot across the Analogue DIm and DIM terminals? (or the PWM Dim and Dim terminals).
I found this online which seems to suggest the answer is an affirmative?

That unit is a current controller for lighting, rather than a voltage controller that could would as a simple speed control.

Using it on a motor would control torque rather than speed; eg. it would run to full speed at anything above a very low setting if unloaded, with the control input varying how easy it was to stop (stall).

ps. The diagram you show is for a voltage input; from near zero for off up to around 1.3V for maximum output.
