This worry's me...

EPC has not been known for high quality motor controllers, Im sure this piece isnt any better....

Here is some info on their controllers. EPC Controllers..... - DIY Electric Car Forums

As for running the controller with the field powered separately shouldn't be a problem. The motor will look like a permanent magnet motor to the controller.

If its a SEPEX motor, it should have field current rating on the name plate.
