They're using a Synchronous Reluctance Internal Permanent Magnet (SRIPM) motor. Interesting that they see the value for money advantage DC presently holds will disappear in about 5 years, per this post on DIYelectriccar.com.

[ Edit: SRIPM seems to be a fancy name for the type of motor that is in many EVs and hybrids including the Prius 20 years ago, the "Interior Permanent Magnet" (IPM) motor. ]
Nissan Leaf 2012 with new battery May 2019.
5650 W solar, 2xPIP-4048MS inverters, 16 kWh battery.
1.4 kW solar with 1.2 kW Latronics inverter and FIT.
160 W solar, 2.5 kWh 24 V battery for lights.
Patching PIP-4048/5048 inverter-chargers.

Too bad, I just paid for my HPEVS AC51 two months ago and it was just delivered, I would have jumped on this at almost $2000 cheaper !! and the specs look better for my purpose !!

It looks quite nice.
But the whole system looks about AUD$7,200 landed for 100kW peak.
Which seems a tad over priced over a regular induction motor of similar spec.
So the short answer is NO but the long answer is YES.

The power graph for that suggests 1,200 RPM before it hits the voltage limit.
Seems quite low.

Perhaps this is so they can release a new controller later using the same motor that does 200kW at 2,500RPM :shock:
Now that'd be more like it :twisted:

I don't see a price anywhere for just the motor.
So the short answer is NO but the long answer is YES.

$7,200 is buying it from a retailer in US, shipping, duty and taxes.
Even better that EV works list them for less.

But that controller is still underrated...
It's like the difference between a stock 4cyl lancer and V6 commodore in performance.
So the short answer is NO but the long answer is YES.
