|Location||New Port Richey, Florida US map|
|Vehicle||2008 Schwinn S60 DSX|
|Motor||Power Pack Motors BMC 600w Brushless DC|
This motor normally has a built in controller, which is now removed, and has wires for an external controller in place.
This removes a large source of heat from inside the case, and allows for much greater power.
Eventually I will do forced air cooling for the motor.
|Drivetrain||Chain drive through the bottom bracket.|
|Controller||Shenzen 48v 28a BLDC|
Chinese made controller, works well for me for now.
I will be getting a Infinion controller in the next couple weeks
|Batteries||6 Milwaukee v28 Li-on, 28.00 Volt, Lithium-Ion|
I have 6 Milwaukee v28 3AH Li-on batteries hooked up in 6p.
They are able to put out 15-20 amps each (with the BMS intact), so that gives me up to 90-120 amps at 28v. I will be changing them to 2s3p with my new controller.
|System Voltage||28 Volts|
|Charger||Milwaukee 3 Bay|
1 Hour full charge for 3 batteries (2 hours for all 6).
|Instrumentation||Cycle analyst is almost here|
|Top Speed||24 MPH (38 KPH)|
At the moment, un-assisted top speed is about 24 mph. With new controller I am hoping for 35+
|Acceleration||0 to 24 in about 15 seconds without pedaling. With pedaling, I can get there in under 6 seconds.|
|Seating Capacity||1 adult|
|Curb Weight||45 Pounds (20 Kilograms)|
|Tires||Kenda 26x1.95 commuter tires|
|Conversion Time||Countless hours reading.|
Tons of time rounding up parts, and ordering what I need.
Very little so far in actual fabrication, since I am still waiting on some key parts to arrive.
|Conversion Cost||Batteries: $470|
Wire, Fuses, Connectors: $50
Time cost: $priceless
