I had the same thought and seemed delta had more teeth being magnetized but don’t think it’s the case. Similarly an LRK or single layer winding with half the teeth left unwound are still part of the magnetic circuit. In fact the LRK winding with half the teeth wound has the highest winding factor or efficiency of the magnetic circuit. It’s like two percent better
Emetor motor design software is free and will produce magnetic circuit footage you can see.
Not yet. I’ll ping them again. Communication has been through FB Messenger so they have usually been quick to reply but usually only after checking with the factory (China). I previously tried communicating directly with the Chinese office but they were even slower to respond and the communication was difficult.
OK more info on this. TP Power USA got back to me (on behalf of the factory) and said that by default they will only install a hall sensor but they can also install a temp sensor if they are provided with the details. It would be easy for them to source an NTC 10K thermistor. Worst case, it’s not too hard to do the install yourself but if they are installing hall sensors they might as well install a temp sensor too.
Jeff Cameron still in discovery mode… the punch control so far dials in what you want and very nicely. Stability is very good and coming off turn throttle has a point and shoot feel to it. Lots here still to test. Very hopefull.
Gotta say this max4 motor/esc combo performed flawles all day. We ran both on 8s and 12s with some the top riders in the country. Our top esc temp at 136F and top motor temp at 156f. We put approximately 1400 watt hr of intence short track sessions through it.
Acceleration and braking was excellent leaving nothing to want over our dual 12kw setup.
Pretty dang impressive for a single motor.
Looking fwd to moving fwd with this. We will be putting the single motor dual drive 15kw setup on the V-5 chassis and testing the limitations and benefits of the locked rear in comparison to our current open dual motor setup…
