  1. Electric Motors
    Hello, I am trying to hook up cooling for my system that needs a NormaQuick PS3 NW16 connector. These are difficult to get in quantities of less than 100. Does anyone know of any alternatives or suppliers of the PS3 NW16 in America?
  2. Batteries and Charging
    Folks, Looking for a CAD (STEP, etc) file for the 90° VOSS 246 / NORMAQUICK V2 or similar coolant line connector/fitting for the Tesla 6.3kW battery modules. If you have a link or file, please share. Working on a custom case for a project and would like to fully model the assembly. Can't seem...
  3. Electric Motors
    Hi All, I am looking for some information on materials that are used in e-motors for the purpose of sealing, insulation, thermal management, coil impregnation, etc. for my research. Any specific examples shall also be valuable. regards, Rajesh

    I have the following cooling plates / manifolds from a Chevy Volt battery pack: • two end-plates with hose barbs • two blank-off plates • one mid-pack manifold $15 ea + shipping
  5. Batteries and Charging
    I am building a 18650 li-ion battery pack for my electric motorcycle. It has over 1000 cells and will hold over 9kWh of power. I am running the cells at a 1C discharge with peak discharge of 3C for no more than 30 sec. I am wondering if air cooling will be sufficient or if anyone has ever tried...
  6. All EV Conversions and Builds
    Hello everyone! So here is my situation. I am mechanical engineering student doing my final project and somehow i chose to design the cabin heater for an electric car (after conversion from internal combustion engine). The problem is, I have some difficulties with electronics, so I hope someone...
  7. Technical Discussion
    I installed a new Masterflux AC unit and controller in my VW conversion and I'm having problems. 1999.5 VW Golf, 208V Thundersky 90ah, Warp 9, Soliton 1, Meanwell 600w DC2DC, Elithion BMS. Compressor was easy to install with custom hoses. Finished install in late August, cools great as long as...
  8. Controllers
    Hey, I have a Netgain 1000A controller (old style) and the capaitor temperature is getting up to above 160 when driving in summer on the highway. The IGBT temp stays pretty low, as I have ample cooling. It did seem slightly better when I removed the plastic cover and drove, but I'm afraid of...
  9. Blog
    Im looking for any information you can share on the thermal performance of the Mars electric motor series (specifically the ME-1004). Maximum operating temperature? Thermal insulation class? etc. This will help me determine if i am overheating and need to add additional cooling to my system...
  10. All EV Conversions and Builds
    So, I've had a good look around and although there is a discussion about cooling motors and controllers, I haven't got a fix on what that looks like for AC motors that have built in cooling capability. Do people use a regular car radiator, fan etc, or do they use other types of cooling systems...
