EV-200 - Anyone using this?

899 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  InovaEE
I got an EV-200 along with the 12.5kw Clark (GE) forklift 36/48vdc motor. Would this be acceptable in using for my electric truck project? Can an accelerator pot be hooked up to this? I can't seem to find any documentation on this unit. Thanks.

That's one of the SCR (Silicon Controlled Rectifier) units from General Electric. I have EV-1 in my electric forklift. This is like 1980's tech, you don't want to use it in a new project for many reasons (I will go lazy style here). Put it on Ebay, and get yourself an appropriately sized Kelly controller (or Curtis, if you're feeling lucky).
