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 Jack and LLoyd (eBay seller) are the only one with the borg warner transm...

EOI: Potential group buy for Siemens 1PV5135motors

Also, I notice that your motors don't come with the 3ph. wiring harness attached. My understanding is that this harness was attached *after* the motors were rewound for a lower voltage. Have you looked at the data plate on the motor to see if that is the case? I'm guessing the concern Tesseract is ...

EOI: Potential group buy for Siemens 1PV5135motors

If the AC24L is usable without modification (splined shaft is okay, missing bearing is not), then I'll take one of those. If there is one with a missing bearing, I'd probably be interested in it too at a lower price so I could experiment with a ACIM siamese arrangement. Do these motors have encoder...

EOI: Potential group buy for Siemens 1PV5135motors

Hmm, shame, I was very keen on the $1,666 price and the AC24LS doesn't really do it for me. How many do you want again celectric? I'm still looking to get some in cheaper than Remote's quote. I'm also going to try get a AC24L, if people want to do a group buy after acceptable answers to the outstan...

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. The question is though as Tesseract pointed out: That's not exactly wh...

EOI: Potential group buy for Siemens 1PV5135motors

Agreed. It would be in the interest of anyone with a large stock of those controllers to figure out how to use one. If they got one in the hands someone like you or myself so we can figure out how to make them usable, the value of all the unsold new-in-box units would go up considerably. Just so ha...

Im not so sure about those DMOCs. TBH i'd be waiting for someone in the US to crack the CAN bus code and/or find out if its useable.
According to Jack, the new in the box DMOCs may have no program on them - which makes them useless. Not even slightly worthwhile in parts at that price.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/160931785345 These are an alternative for people not requiring as much power. Id be inclined to run it at 312V delta - you'd be looking at some decent peak power before it melts.

Regarding the group buy,
Jack is short of gear boxes. If you are after motors only, he may do the best deal.


Jack or Lloyd? Jack has said he is not interested in reducing the price for a group buy.

It went for more than I was willing to spend (also, the money for my motorcycle sale only came through this afternoon, too late anyway). Still a bargain!
