Well, here we are already at IV! We've made some changes to the design of the unit and we've increased the relaibility even further. This will be pretty much the final revision of this board as it's now at a point where its as tough as nails!
It's a high quality unit, that you can use for multiple applications over many years, not a cheap units that you get to use only once because it blew up. The series III (now series IV) was built to expand on the ranges of motors that customers typically tend to use, and we didn't just go a little overboard, we went WAY overboard.
Lovingly Hand Crafted in Australia!
- 12V-48V Input Voltage (Battery Bank) 12V-55V (Regulated Power Supply)
- Simple to setup and use!
- 0-100% Speed Regulation!
- Constant torque with Pulse Width Modulation (PWM)
- High Quality Industrial Design
- Efficient High Voltage Regulator
- On/Off Switch (Built in!)
- 3 Soft start settings (Off, Slow, Slower) ramps up to the desired speed once the controller is switched on, and unlike cheap controllers every time you switch it off and on (using the switch) it will ramp up to speed again!
- Burst Currents up to 50A for 10 seconds
- 40A Continuous duty
- 2 Oz Double Sided PCB
- High Speed Mosfet driver averaging 1.6uS opening/closing times
- High Current 180A Mosfets with worlds lowest RDS On in TO-220!
- Low Battery Voltage cut-out (for 12V, 24V and 36V)
- Adjustable Frequency From 300Hz to 10Khz
- Can work with Hall Effect Throttles (Model Dependent)
- Over voltage Protected, ESD Protected!
- Filtering, Clamping & Snubber Protection Included
- Adjustable Start Positioning for Hall effect and Potentiometer setups
- 8 Way Terminal Block For simple connections
- External connectors for Hall Effect or Potentiometer, so you can make your own cable lengths up to 5m!
- Passive cooling! No fans to break down or sieze up!!
- Highly Configurable!
- Potentiometer, Hall effect throttle or Hall Effect Foot throttle options!
- Suitable for use with power supplies (Doesn't feed excess power back into the source)
Putting a high power motor on this controller and then trying to overdrive it is a BAD idea!, the supression diode in this controller can handle up to 1200v from the motor but if you have the above setup then the motor being an inductor can generate incredibly high voltages which then feed BACK into the controller!
So you may need to add a snubber to your motor in these cases to drop the high voltages!
