thoughts on an electric people mover?

I think i mentioned that the aim would be to run standard half shafts with a belt/chain drive to the hub motor, so it would not be in the wheel. So it would not effect the braking etc requirements. Sorry i should not refer to it as a hub more just as a brushless motor. The reason i am suggesting tha...

thoughts on an electric people mover?

yup, its abit unique :) Its essentially 2 motors wound on a stator using the same magnet ring. Works very well and atm i am pushing 30kw+ into my motorbike which is using the motor as a hub and its not getting too warm unless i am in constant stop start traffic so i believe the 94% efficiency rating...

thoughts on an electric people mover?

That is a complete motor and controller setup, its Brushless DC so it will have regen. The controllers are ~1800 for the pair to run one motor. It will require some basic machining as i would not recommend direct drive but something like a 2-1 ratio. The motor is the compact hub motors i am using on...

thoughts on an electric people mover?

How much power are you expecting out of the motors? You could easily go brushless dc, even using available motor controllers your could do 30kw per corner 94% efficient sine wave control with built in bms and display screen for $2.5k per corner. Each motor and controller system would be <20kg

I had a look at doing a people mover at one stage, was going to work on a mercedes Van for resale value once complete. I was thinking of going 4WD using the hub motors i have been playing with and some machined half shafts to end up with similar drive line to the Eliica prototype. One awesome Electr...

Really going to be awesome if it works with the lithium batteries. I guess you wouldn't be able to use the Lithium batteries that range between 3.5 and 4.2V? Some really nice cells can now be bought due to the ramp up of production for Tesla etc.

Could anyone help diagnose my soliton's issue?

Is the contactor inside the controller? It says on the website that the control stuff is built in but could you not just bypass that by buying a precharge timer unit from Zeva? I would guess the controller would work fine with the main pack voltage coming onto it? $60 or so including shipping to tes...

How are you going to trick the voltage readout of the 20 points? I would guess that the voltage at the measured points on the lithium pack would be different to the original pack? Have you ever thought about doing a full standalone control conversion? Ie run the electronics from a DIY controller and...

Its been around for awhile, but its abit sad it only has 11kw. The battery is as big as the top line Zero and with its "better" aero it should be good for the 200km. 178kg with 11kw, its not getting moving very fast. I love how they put on the site 50-80km/h in 4sec. 25,000euro......ffs if someone w...

Would highly suggest staying away from a hub motor for any sort of high performance on a electric dirt bike. If you are happy with medium performance and a fairly heavy build that can not be jumped too well then they would be fine. I ll PM you more info on what i would do if you want. I am pretty mu...

I would love to do a build up for you at close to cost price. Something around 15kw on a kid/adult size bike should be enough(i ll buy a second hand bike to build it on that you chose, good bikes with seized engines are worth about $200-500) would be ~$5k with a 3kw/h sized battery on it.

You could easily build a 20kwh pack in 150kg or less if you used "scary Lipo", with the motor it can be done with a 15kg bldc motor with another few kg of a igbt diy controller run the whole thing at 400v with oil cooling and then it would be fun. But personally I would build the frame from scratch ...

pretty sure that razor quad could take alot more power then just 350W. A fairly safe bet is to upgrade the controller with a cheapy from Ebay 700W should be safe.
