Default Re: Max rpmís admiral motor?

From the sound of his OP I don't think he minds blowing the motor Sergio. He's wanting to go over the recommended RPM limit and already tapped one of the motor studs, so the warranty is already null.

OP; go for it and let us know how high you get the rpms and what speed.

The armature in my stock PDS motor was spinning a bit over 8000RPM when it exploded, but I'm pretty sure the failure was caused by a combination of excessive heat, high RPM and strong Regen braking since it stayed together until I lifted my foot off the pedal as I neared a sharp curve at the bottom of the hill. Fortunately, both rear tires locked up equally when the motor seized and I slide to a stop in more or less a straight line, but it was a wild ride.

Unless the motor is specifically balanced and banded for high speed, I'd stay below 6500RPM, since the centrifugal force trying to pull the armature apart gets ridiculously high really quick as RPM increases and unenhanced armatures aren't held together all that well.

Be safe.

Ok - so the motor finally blew!! Was doing 35 at about 7000 rpm this morning on way to a friends house - felt I was pushing it to much and them BAM!! Starting getting this clanky sound and smelled something burning.

Cart lost all of it's punch, limped in to my friends house and it seems the motor is toast.

I can still drive it at about 25% standard power, but that's it.

Had RPM's up to 7000 - well above manufacturers recommended 6000 as Scotty stated.

Now I need to find a new motor - thinking I'll go back to D&D unless anyone has better suggestions.

I'd give Chuck at EMP a call. He'll design a motor to fit your needs/desires and do high speed banding if you want to spin it fast.

But be fair and tell him exactly how the cart is set up & what you do with it. And that you just smoked a newer Admiral motor. He will put all of this into building you the best motor match up.

I'll second the recommendation for Chuck at EMP. He is incredibly thorough about finding out what you have, what you want, and laying out the options.

I went with the banding and the thermostat switch. For anyone else interested, his motors can be configured for speed or torque on the fly via a rotary type mechanism or a contactor. It can also be done via some jumpers on the motor itself, which is how I have mine setup for speed. I have plenty of torque that way for what I do, but I could see being able to change back and forth a good option for some people. I hadnít heard of this before, and it wasnít an extra charge outside of getting the switching mechanism, so I was wondering if this is something that can be done with all motors??? Mine is a series.

Dela, I think I saw in another post that youíre trying to get a new motor right away. Iíd humbly suggest taking a little time and contacting Chuck. I really couldnít believe how thorough they are. I filled out a long questionnaire about the cart and how I use it, then was sent back three pages of information on three different options. He was very helpful on the phone too.

Ok so here is some photos of the damage. Motor was still working at about 20% so not sure if repairable or not. Going to see if I can get a repair shop to fix it, looks like itís just those Ďcoilsí that got toasted, two out of four. Got a recommendation of a local shop, Iíll give it a go just for the knowledge.

Threw the oem motor back in this morning , sacrificing speed to roll and save some dough until I figure out my next step. My impatience generally costs me so Iím going to try to Ďbe mature and patientí. - weíll see how long that lasts.
