DC Controller
 

DC Controller Overview

(This page is currently under construction)

Solid state controllers are actually quite advanced. They use a high frequency that pulses and allows electricity to flow at different rates, giving the system infinitely variable drive. Forklifts, carts, material handling, tow tractors and other industrial vehicles have used them for years.

The controller we will be using for our 9” motor is made specifically to provide smooth, silent efficient speed and torque for our vehicle. It is programmed to be used in a commuter vehicle application, with built in safety features like thermal protection to prevent overheating, under-voltage cutout to prevent low battery rundown, and fault circuitry to prevent runaway.
