Vectrix and assorted EV parts

Post by Vectrix150V » Fri, 27 Jul 2018, 10:16

I've been collecting bits and pieces for years now, just been fleeced through a divorce and need to have a cleanup and get some funds back again.

All of this is in good working order.

I'm located in Newcastle, N.S.W but happy to ship via pack-n-send etc to get this to you at your expense. I've got a Ute as well so can deliver if you are close enough too.

Vectrix VX1 - $1500

Was my daily ride for ages, until I bought a petrol bike for longer trips when I got divorced (and actually had some freedom).

It was fitted with Nissan Leaf batteries, a full Fetcher/GGoodrum BMS system, 2KW Elcon charger + fan, Cycle Analyst, extra DC:DC converter that runs a HID
projection headlamp with a FastBright 35W ballast (not cheap, slow to light ballasts). Easily pulled 32Kw when seriously provoked.

The bad thing is that the batteries got drained by neglect. I've since removed them. They hold a charge but have too high internal resistance for EV applications
(Now being used for off-grid storage).

Everything is ready for a new set of batteries and just riding it. Currently unregistered.

144V Battery Bank and Charger, $1000

Elcon 2Kw charger set up for 13 series AGM batteries, and 13 50AH Eaton PWHR12200W4FR AGM batteries.

Great for someone who is building an EV on the cheap. I've been hoarding parts for ages. My plan was to use the Vectrix swingarm and build a delta trike, but never
got around to it.

Batteries test AS NEW in capacity and internal resistance, and handle 300A peaks fine. They were removed only a year into service from a UPS due to a single cell (in a 44S pack) failing.

The charger alone is worth $1000 (https://www.evworks.com.au/tc-charger-1 ... po4-charge) so this is a bargain!

Vectrix Motor Controller, $350

This was a spare I kept for my bike. Installed to test, but never used for long on road. Its had a new Powerex PM300CLA060 fitted as it ate its original one's terminals.

Vectrix Swingarm, $350

Full swingarm + motor + rim + encoder. Has 1,200Klms on it. Bought for a project that never happened. The tyre on the rim is bald though (I swapped the good one onto the bike).

The encoder is unusual as it has both a sine/cosine output, and normal hall effect outputs, so it can be run easily with cheap commodity controllers.

Vectrix Runke Charger $250

Standard 1500W charger removed when I fitted lithium Leaf Cells. 1200 klms old. In good working order.

150V Programmable voltage/current charger - $250

Really nice bit of gear, Adjustable from about 95-150V and 1-10A. High end programmable charger. It shows an error because the sense leads are disconnected, but
charges regardless. Its designed for free air cooling, but personally I usually run a 120mm fan on it.

Vectrix IGBT - PM300CLA060. $200

Removed from a low Klm working controller (1,200klms) that had the firmware wiped during a failed update.

Ideal if you have a smoked IGBT. New these little buggers are $500 each(!)

12V 50AH Batteries - Eaton PWHR12200W4FR AGM batteries - $75 each

1 year old, test AS BRAND NEW. Never been used for anything but float charged in a UPS. Basically half-price. I have rather a few of these. Matched from the same batch for large series string use.

How many of the batteries do you have in total? Potentially interested in using them for off-grid storage.

I have 30 at least. I'll check for you. Happy to do a bulk price for you.

Depending on your budget I have a brand new in box SMA SBU5000 inverter + 2Kw of solar panels to go with those batteries.

Hi Heath, Do you still have the programmable charger and the SMA inverter?

So it turns out the batteries in the Vectrix are actually OK, there was a loose busbar that was causing a high resistance joint.

I'll re-list this bike with updated information. I don't have the room in my garage to store it, nor the time to ride it since I have a 700cc gasser (boo hiss I know).
