Default Buyers Guide for electric carts

I joined the forum looking for something like this. I put this together, maybe it will be helpful to somebody else. All the information is gleaned from Corrections, updates and additions would be nice.


Electric Cart Buyers Guide

Series Drive System
Most basic and most reliable
Best for off-road, large tires and towing
All carts built before 1995 are series drive
Mechanical lever (not a switch) for forward/reverse
Cart is slow and high torque
Higher speeds available by upgrading controller/solenoid and batteries to 48V. (Stock motor is okay)
Install larger/heavy duty:
Speed control
Fwd/rev switch
Battery cables
Sepex drive system
Not as well suited for slow, high torque use as the series drive
Electrical switch for forward/reverse
Employs a run/tow switch to cut power to the controller
Motor has two large power wires, plus a pigtail/multiconnector with small control wires
Bigger speed control = more torque and more speed (stock solenoid and cables are okay)
Above 400 amps go to bigger speed control & solenoid plus bigger battery cables
Motor mapping should be tailored to the cart usage – low torque/hi speed versus hi torque/low speed
Extended slow operation with big tires or hills can overheat the motor.
