I have just purchased this motor and controller. Cannot find any references to this motor anywhere on google! Can anybody shed some light on specifications? Thanks. Aldo.

Unfortunately the motor and controller were purchased separately and so controller settings are unrelated!

But plate idea a good suggestion.

I have not received motor yet. Here are the only pics I have.
That is an older Lincoln Electric motor, 254T frame if I'm not mistaken. They made (or wound) them for Solectria before the Azure acquisition. It was a decent motor but not outstanding in the TENV package. You can see in the photo the hack job where they (someone other than Lincoln) have modified it for ventilation and coolant tubes on the frame. Indicates to me it may have been run hot. Good luck with it.

OK. Thanks for your feedback all.
So now the motor/controller has been with us for a while and have started exploring. My esteemed friend Malcolm has come around and did some research, diagnostics et al. This is what he had to say....

"Initial communication with DMOC via serial. Unfortunately we need some different software to talk CAN. the TCBEV software doesn't like the controller. Controller is talking at 125kBPS. Not what TCBEV is expecting. Also need the correct CCS file for the ccShell software. Any EV friends have any suggestions."

Please see pic

We also require the ccs file A8-E7-05-A3-D9-4A-46-73.ccs

The controller is an older 'Gen 1' DMOC645 controller with direct pedal inputs.
the motor is an AC55 as far as we can tell.

Thanks in advance if anyone can post a CSS file for this or a similar setup.

Mal.
