Wasn't sure where to post this....also have this under "motors and drives"
Any info on what battery set up for my powered wheelbarrow would be appreciated.
It needs to be low speed with high torque and a good run time.
I have a 48v/800watt motor and controller that was marketed as a power cart or wheelbarrow kit from NuSun Inc. and looking to buy the batteries now. Do I need all 4 batteries or can it run on 24 or 36 volts? Looking to save weight and space.
What amp hr packs would be the best for my project and how does changing the voltage and/or AH effect the performance?
I need reverse on this, can these motors be reverse simply by switching the polarity from the battery to the controller or do these controllers need a certain polarity going into them? Or is there a better way to add reverse? (without a gearbox)
Are these gel cell batteries as sensitive as I've herd as in keeping them fully charged and not letting them go below 20%? If so how can I monitor this and prevent that from happening, simply by adding some kind of volt meter or is there a devise that I can install to shut the unit down when the batteries are to low?
Can I use a different type of battery pack? or for safety, will gel cells be the best?
Thanks in advance for any help or advise I can get.
