In the contoller-box is the curtis controller, DC/DC converter, fuses & a kilovac ev200 main contactor which will be operated from the controller / ignition switch.
See here http://www.electro-vehicles.eu/publi...pAC_Scheda.pdf
In future the E-Car box will also feature the curtis AC 120-144V controller to come.
Yes - we thought also of turning the connector box on top of the motor around but when fitting the front battery box we found that there is too little space left for the cables, after all it is just 20cm additional length and we have a lot of space left on the side towards the cabin & only little spaces towards the front of the car.
Maybe best would be to turn it to the side, but I don`t know yet if this is possible.
P.S. Concerning the title of this thread: we decided to only fit 108V which means 34 lifepo4 sinopoly 200Ah. They guy at ev-cars is of the opinion that this would stress the controller allready enough since it is designed only for 96V originally.
Moreover we could fit the 34 cells easily in the car with only 2 simple battery boxes without changes to the body and fitting the rear box in the postion of the former fuel tank (36 cells would have meant to fit them in the spare wheel compartment instead and make a whole new body construction here / lower the compartment, reposition a crossbar underneath, etc.).
