Just a few months too early for me, I'm afraid... (well, I hope it's only a few!)

J1772 Adapter

When there are actually public EVSE units installed I would consider it. Are there any in Perth yet? I'm surprised acmotor didn't answer this!

celectric wrote:Shirker, you expressed interest in the AC24LS, are you also still interested in the 1PV5135?

Yes - my ideal is:
* 3 x set of {1PV5135, DMOC645, eGearDrive} - assuming all outstanding questions are answered
* 1 x AC24LS @ $200

EOI: Potential group buy for Siemens 1PV5135motors

The AC234LS motors I'm selling do have a splined shaft. However, the majority of them have the bearing installed making only shaft making the challenge. It's very possible to machine down the 1-1/8" spline to a 7/8" keyed shaft. Remote - perhaps you could post some pics, to be sure we're all on the...

EOI: Potential group buy for Siemens 1PV5135motors

That does sound promising, at least for the controllers he's selling. Somebody might have to buy one off Jack just to share access to the software and VCU details :-) I am tempted to grab an AC24 motor My sentiments exactly - nice specs, and $200 is an excellent price. Count me in too. The other th...

EOI: Potential group buy for Siemens 1PV5135motors

Hope I'm not too late - I'm in for 3 at $2k ea. I'd prefer whole sets with motor, eGearDrive & DMOC, but happy to collect the extras separately if need be - even from Jack, whose heart is in the right place (protect the vendors who are in the market for the long term by not undercutting their prices...
