The motor can be used to drive an existing gearbox or can be hooked up to an OEM single speed transmission. The configurable OEM motor and inverter assembly comes complete with a component kit including power cable (500mm long), communication cable and coolant hose connectors.
The CM100KW1 features an input voltage of 280-420V, a power rating of 50kW continuous or 100-150 peak; and motor torque of 260 Nm. The maximum motor speed is 14,000 rpm and the maximum efficiency speed is 9,800 rpm. The unit measures 380x330x370 mm and weighs 54 kg.
A 150 kW version is also available.
