• Motenergy ME1117 Motor

The Motenergy ME1117 motor is a 3-phase, Y-connected Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor with an axial air gap, otherwise known as PMAC motor. Commutation is achieved by an internal Sine/Cosine speed sensor. Input Voltage of 24-48 VDC. 100 Amps continuous, up to 300 Amps for 30 seconds at 48 VDC. This motor has a built-in bi-directional cooling fan and internal temperature sensor. Motor weight is 22 pounds. 

This is a direct replacement for the Motenergy ME0201013001 and ME0907motors. It is also a bolt-in replacement for the Brigs & Staratton Etek motor.

This Brushless motor requires a 3 Phase 8 Pole PMAC controller. 

These patented axial flux motors are designed to work with sinusoidal (sine wave) controllers such as the Sevcon Gen4. NOTE: We do not recommend the use of square wave controllers with these motors. This may reduce durability and efficiency of the motor, as well as void it's warranty.
