1 Siemens 1PV5135-4WS14 AC Induction Motor
Siemens 1PV5135 4WS14 AC Induction Motor This is perhaps the most unusual AC Induction Motor in the world. Siemens makes extremely high quality heavy duty AC induction motors - mostly for yachts and busses, but some trains as well. This motor was specially produced for the Azure Dynamics Ford eTransit Connect project and we obtained a large lot of these motors, brand new in the box, from the Azure Dynamics liquidation auction. What is so unusual about these motors is that Siemens typically designs very high voltage (600-750v) three phase AC induction motors. This motor was specially produced for AZD and is wound for a relatively low 215vdc. Azure Dynamics used them with a 335v pack using their DMOC645 inverter controller. These are voltages much more amenable to conversion vehicles. The motor was tested to 221 foot lbs - 297 Newton Meters at 300v and 400 amps. This is the equivalent of 134 horsepower. Liquid cooled: 50% glycol/water at 16 liters/min This unit is tagged at a nominal voltage of 215 volts and 47 kW continous power at variance with the data sheet on this motor. It was probably specially wound by Seimens for the Azure Dynamics eTransit Connect project.
