IIRC, December 2010 I had contact with Remy. as I wanted the HVH250 as well.

As of today they make the rotor and stator. Not the housing. Housing is generally provided by a gearbox like demonstrated by Toyota, Honda and Merc, GM etc.

Good news 1:
Prognosis in Dec 2010 was that end 2011 they will start providing/making motors with enclosures IIRC 3k price range. That would be fantastic.

Good news 2:
DP cars / Rinehart Motion Systems may be making an enclosure already now. Hopefully someone can chime in.

oh, so they aren't on market yet
I'll try to get in touch which the european branch.

what about 600 V input: does it need a batteries pack different than usual?

Remy has production in Poland yes, but thats OEM market.

Voltage does not change a battery chemistry. Just add more.

Electro Vehicle Europe in Italy Bergamo sell 60kW water cooled induction motors. Ordered mine last week :)

Think both would be happy to supply,

EVE has helped me with selecting the right motor. M3-AC60. a 60kW version. 360V 200A, 90kw, 300A for a minute or less. :D

It may sound a bit optimistic, but I am working on my own controller.
Hope it works out. If not i can buy a suited controller, or convert an existing 2hp inverter with large IGBT's.

Steven,

that sounds very interesting. Please keep us updated on your progress (going industrial ACIM+VFD myself, motor run first time last week).

Do you have a build thread or blog somewhere?

Regards,


Huub

Hi,

No blog yet. Maybe if I get some interresting results. If I fail making the controller I prefer to do it quietly :p

My intension is to make it simple enough that most electrical design engineers and possibly experienced diyers can reproduce it at home for their appliances/pourposes. another possibility is to sell kits which need to be assembled. But afraid for claims as its not cheapest solution.......

Remy motor are efficient and high power desity..but range is a function of battery capacity, vehicle weight, etc...not the motor. Remy has a patented HVH (high voltage hairpin) design. Remy is a Teir 1 automotive, heavy duty and military supplier of electric motors and has over 90,000 motors on the road with over 1 billion road miles. Remy has been in business for over 100 years and manufacturers over 17 million stators and rotors a year.

Remy Electric Motors are good up to 700 volts and 600 amps but can be used at lower voltage and current which is user defined. The HVH250 line of motors are available in series or parallel windings.
