From the Dept of Holy Crap, I give you YASA Motors. Remember the ETEK, and how axial flux motors are different than radial flux motors? Well the original ETEK and Agni and Perm and other axial flux motors were brushed, air-cooled PMDC. This is the model YASA-400, and this baby is an AC, liquid-cooled 85kw motor that weighs just 50lbs – just a little over twice what the ETEK weighs, with 10kw.
Here are the numbers:
|Electrical specification||Mechanical specification|
|Peak torque||360Nm||Total weight||24kg|
|Continuous torque||250Nm||Total volume||6 litres|
|Peak power @ 350V||90kW||Axial Length||75mm|
|Peak power @ 700V||165kW||Diameter||280mm|
|Maximum Speed||7500rpm||Flow rate||6-10L/min|
|Peak efficiency||>95%||Fluid volume||0.6L|
They have a line of three models, here:
Did you see the YASA250? Well, here’s the comparo:
…lower torque, higher RPM and lower continuous power – but dude. 40lbs. OH! and look at the peak power numbers at 700V- the 400 is 165kw, the 250 is 180kw. Crazy shit.
Now. Who is this guy, and why is he smiling?
That’s Mike O’Hanlon, the guy who sold his bar to fund Chris Jones’ Voltron Evo.
And the smile? Because this:
