I have no clue when it comes to this stuff so please bare with me. To make a long story short; I hired a guy in July to install an electric motor on my trike and two months later I received my bike incomplete. It is missing the controller. It has throttle installed, motor installed, wiring, etc..... he gave it to me incomplete during a pending court proceeding to get my bike back (long story).
The motor I provided him with was off an old school scooter that had everything wrong with it but the motor. I can't tell what the model number is or wattage because it's old and alot of information got rubbed off over time. I know it's a Unite brand, 24V, 9.5A current, and the model number starts with MY and ends with CE (I think) but I don't really know anything else.
I need to know what controller motor I should purchase. I don't have lights on the bike so there are only 4 plugs to plug in. If you need pin count on each plug then please let me know. I also have a picture of the motor, I can provide pictures of the current set up as it is on my bike to anyone that is knowledgeable about this stuff. I tried looking on eBay, but there are several 24V controller options depending on wattage but none that have only 4 plugs.
My questions... how do I figure out what wattage I need? Can I purchase something with more plugs and only use 4 (I assume the other plugs are for lights, & other electrical accessories?). Can I assume this is a brush motor and is this something else Id need to know when buying the controller? And finally, if I do end up with a controller with more than the necessary plugs.... how do I figure out which ones to use?
I have brought the bike to several scooter and e-bike shops in my area and I can't seem to find anyone that does this sort of custom stuff, they sell pre-manufactured bikes and don't know anything about what I have.
Sorry for the long post, hope someone here can help as I am eager to convert over to my bike from using my gas guzzling SUV for financial reasons. I've been eagerly waiting to complete this project for a long time.
Thanks for any help,
