Bosch Says Electric Vehicles Won’t Become Pervas

An intersting perspective... Full electric power trains like battery electrics, hydrogen fuel cells, and so forth are coming, but slowly. Let’s face it: most of those on the market so far are nothing more than curiosities. The Tesla Roadster and the Aptera 2e, while they look really good and are des...

High voltage cabling

Gents The motor is AC manufactured by MES-DEA and rated at 30KW. The TIM-600 inverter maximum DC bus input voltage and current ratings are 400V and 250A. Although due to limit space in the MR2 I will probably only fit in 82 TS-LFP90AHA cells which gives me 260V. The main fuse (Aamotor was correct) w...

High voltage cabling

Hello Everyone I am at the point of the MR2 conversion where I need to plan the high voltage cabling, circuit breakers and safety systems and would like to test my thoughts against the collective wisdom of the forum. Basically the circuit will be laid out as follows: •Key switch in the active close ...

azure manufactured where ?

Azure is represented in Australia by www.evpower.com.au

They are large and/or a little under powered when compared to Siemens or MES-DEA which are the most comparable and accessible AC systems.

EV Rego Requirements

You could try - Trevor Booth - Adcot Engineering Services – 0428-225-521

He is very knowledgeable and was very helpful in planning my EMR2, but a little out of your way.

Another newbie joining the EV enthusiasts ranks

Priit I when thru the same process, ACP, Siemens, Evisol all to no avail and then approached Azure Dynamics and Metric Mind. Both were happy to deal but in the end I went with MM (Victor) who was very easy to do business with. I have an MES-DEA 200-250 which is a 30kW 3 phase AC motor. It is expensi...

Another newbie joining the EV enthusiasts ranks

In 2007 I visited ACP in an effort to create a personal relationship with people in the company. At the time they were very friendly, took me around the facility and even let me drive an E-box, and when I asked about purchasing a motor the advice was to wait a few months and try again (production is...

Make your mark on Australia.

Matt Don’t have a blog at this stage, great idea. The original kerb weight of my AW11 was 1090kg (measured at a local weighbridge). Estimated weight reduction is a about 215kg after the ICE etc is removed (based on communication with other MR2 converters). Stupidly I forgot to weight the ICE in my h...

Metric Mind sources the Siemens motors from Evisol, how Evisol relates to Siemens I'm not sure. Very basically the LH5118 is a 15kW motor and the MES-DEA 200-250 a 30kW motor - but there is more to it than that.

James will be supplying components for my traction system and knows the project well.

electroautomotive kits

I was originally interested in the Siemens 1LH5118 but got up-sold to the MES-DEA 200-250 (long story). Disappointingly I could find no one at Siemens AU to help me with their EV motor range, tried Evisol who pointed me back to Metric Mind. I could have purchased directly from MES-DEA but my Italian...

Costs for a 95.5Kg package from Portland in the US to Sydney via DHL are: Freight $660; Fees $400; GST 10%; Duty 5%. However you can expect the Duty to be 10%.
