What are you asking for it? Will the controller do regen braking?

Wow really for a transit bus??? I was just looking for something for my Chevy s-10 conversion. I wonder if this would even fit! - maybe it would go better in my 1-ton pickup??? (not a current plan really)

Anyways.. out of curiosity, What kind of controller is needed to talk with this inverter?

I think this might be a little too much for me. I need something that's relatively plug and play. They do look amazing though.

Interesting specs...

Yeah, it's a big motor. :)

I assume this was leftover from Azure Dynamics / Solectria, but I did see another ad for the same model of motor saying that is was for a Mercedes Cito Bus. The Cito was a diesel-electric bus - not a hybrid with a battery but with a generator and motor as the transmission like a locomotive or ship - which might explain why the spec sheet which I linked described it as a "generator" rather than a "motor". In the Cito, the motor is mounted longitudinally on top of the axle as shown in this ad (driving the pinion though an enclosed chain or gears; note this salvage axle is lying on the ground rotated 90 degrees from the operating orientation), and the generator is mounted directly on the engine crankshaft (on the right-hand side in the photo below).
