Hello Voltage Community,
I am building an electric vehicle using Zapino hub motor and controller, and have some questions about this setup.
I stripped all the lights and indicators etc out of the system, and now have only the ignition switch connecting batteries to the dasboard speedometer/voltage monitor, the controller, throttle and motor.
When I turn on the ignition switch, the motor locks up, regardless of whether the main breaker is on or off.
When main power is on, and I give it throttle, the motor turns, but against significant resistance, and will not turn very fast.
This problem used to be only occaisional: Several times with this configuration the ignition switch did not lock up the motor and it was able to go to very high RPMs without any resistance or shuttering. But now it locks up every time without exception.
Mountain Chen says this is a six phase system. It looks like the one he posted a while back.
If I have to buy a new controller that is fine, I just want to get the thing running. Are there over the counter controllers compatible with this motor? If not, is there a good place to buy a 2500-3000w 60v hub motor for ten inch wheel, with controller?
thanks for any and all help
