Hi, This was started as an ealier thread "Surplus DC Motor" but since the purchase, I have found more info about the motor (the motor did not have a nomencature plate on it). It is a Balkancar motor made by Geogi Kostov motor works. The data from the inside end plate of the Motor reads " K5 EC 52/22/28 " If I read the specs of their other motors on their site correctly, these numbers corrospond to 5.2 Kw, 220volt and %28 Duty Cycle.....Is this right? I was thinking it was a 48volt motor as the other motor it was with was that voltage, and I assumed they came from the same piece of machinery. Did I stumble upon something good, or am I stuck with a lemon for EV purposes?? BTW, motor frame size is 191mm and yes, it does work.
Thanks for the help,
Iggymo (Steve K.)
