ACmotor - who was the FIRST used 500+ volts What about the Carbon motor as an option? Cheers for that. I had a look at the Carbon when I first started my serious research (early 2012). I then stumbled onto the EVO motors while reading through this forum and the AFM-140 outperformed the Carbon in pr...

Don't underestimate the degree to which higher voltage reduces your choice of components and hence increases the cost and complexity of your conversion. Appreciate the sentiment and totally agree regarding reduced choices of components and elevated costs for HV. As for increasing the complexity, if...

Thanks for the quick replies. I've had a read through the "what not to do" thread (thanks celectric). I agree that the higher voltage path is potentially a more dangerous one but I believe that anything to do with electricity is dangerous and you can design around this (Echoing some of your reply he...

Siemens 1PV5138-4WS24

Hi, Long time reader and first time poster on this forum. I'm looking at doing an EV conversion and have been going through the process of selecting a motor. I was set to order an AFM-140 but unfortunately missed the boat with their merge with GKN, so I'm now looking at other options. Presently I'm ...
