MOTION CONTROL:NetGain Controls Inc. has announced the availability of a high powered, liquid cooled controller for series wound dc motors commonly used in electric vehicles. Deliveries are scheduled to begin immediately. This product is the ideal controller for dc powered electric vehicles.Some of this product’s features include: CANbus, super-silent operation, 1400+ torque producing amps, high-voltage capabilities, and expandability to future features through a unique software update process. The controller includes top-mount terminals for high-power connections. Low-voltage connections use automotive style connectors for a simple installation and reliable, OEM-quality operation. Many processes, such as automatic pre-charging, happen behind the scenes to make the controller operation as simple as possible.
NetGain Controls has kept safety a top priority throughout the engineering process of this product. Multiple microprocessors verify correct operation throughout the system, and shut it down if anything isn’t working properly.
Add-on features like high-quality data logging, user-interface display, and speed sensor monitoring are also available. This announcement is part of a growing list of quality products for the “green” community from NetGain Controls Inc.
