They're working on sevcon kit adapter to replace the Parker MC. Hope it will be available soon:

That looks great
Any idea on power increase? better acceleration? (we know from the TREV days that the vectrix motor is capable of more)
Cost of conversion?
2007 Vectrix, modified with 42 x Thundersky 60Ah in July 2010. Done 194'000km
I'll try again; do you mean *Sevcon* is working on an alternative controller? Where did you get this info, please?
Wow! I havnt seen that thing in a long time. I designed that board 15yrs ago when we were testing out a Sevcon integration. Wouldnt hold your breath on this one...lol
Wow, X Vectrix, I have been wondering what happened to you. I used to read your posts with such joy. Good to see you're still kickin' around
I also own a 2018 Tesla Model 3 and a 2012 Mitsubishi iMiev
Yeah, still haunting the graveyard.
What sevcon model is that?
Hi Dugas, nice to read you here. So you build that board? Had it ever worked?
Yeah it worked just fine. I think the MC was a prototype that Sevcon was developing for high voltage. At the time they didnt have a high voltage model.
Wow it's a really old motherboard, I've seen it 10 years ago. The good thing is that the Motor parameters can be changed directly from the sevcon console.
If I'm right, the can bus still include the SevCon commands.
Since Sevcon has a High Voltage model, like the https://cdn.borgwarner.com/docs/default-source/default-document-library/gen4-size-8.pdf?sfvrsn=4b2b5a3d_7
How hard would it be to integrate it on Vectrix?
I wonder if you still have access to the DCF files used on that Sevcon MC 15 years ago. It could be really helpful on integrating a modern Gen4 Size8.
