EV conversion specialist Electrofit has unveiled its first electric crate motor. The CM100KW1 is a permanent magnet synchronous (PMS) motor that includes a built-in inverter designed to reduce cost and complexity.
The motor can be used to drive an existing gearbox, or can be connected to an OEM single-speed transmission. The configurable OEM motor and inverter assembly is supplied with a kit of components comprising a power cable (500 mm long), communications cable and coolant pipe connectors.
The CM100KW1 features input voltage of 280-420 V, a power rating of 50 kW continuous or 100-150 peak; and motor torque of 260 Nm. The maximum motor speed is 14,000 rpm, and the peak efficiency speed is 9,800 rpm. The unit measures 380x330x370 mm and weighs 54 kg.
A 150 kW version is also available.
Electrofit can also provide a matched OEM single-speed transmission that is designed to sync perfectly with the motor. The motor and transmission combined provide 260 Nm of torque in a front-wheel-drive configuration.
