Default Electric motor H.P.

Mornin,....

I bought a new FSIP 221-48Vspeedcc electric motor.

It is 4KW but no H.P. on the name plate.

Seller (dealer) claims a little over 9 H.P.

Factory claims a little over 5 H.P.

Is there a math formula to figer this out??

Thank's

I'd say the factory is correct at ~5.3hp...

I agree. 5.3 hp. 9 hp is peak.

Current Club Car Tempo, Precedent, and Onward factory motor is 2.5 KW which is 3.3HP and a claimed 13HP peak. (Club Car supplied data).

Well.... I can't really say. I drove the cart when I picked it up at the shop and it spun the tires in the gravel parking lot.

But I've been sic with a bad cold ever since I got it home.

I finally tracked down a GPS but it has also been raining everyday.

I had new batteries installed so it all has to be broken in.

The shop said they got 24mph out of it. I hope so.

That's with 12" wheels and 19.5 tires.

ScottyB fixed me up with the Alltrax 400 amp controller, wires, sol, volt meter, and 3 position key switch.

It all started out as a grand-kids project, then I fell into a rabbit hole.

I got to check the speed today with a GPS. This is with motor FSIP 221-48VSPEED CC.

I'm not seeing a good speed? Only 18MPH. Maybe I'm expecting too much?

How long does a new motor and battery break-in take? Will that get it to the magic 22-24 MPH?

So many questions and too many hands in the pot. Not a happy camper.....

PJay.

Assuming You have an Alltrax XCT Controller, make sure the shop that installed the motor has also installed the correct FSIP Motor Field map in the Alltrax Controller.
