- make a bushing to fit my encoder to the motor shaft
- get it all connected up
Most of it is in the basement now. Pictures are:
- Contactors, precharge resistor, 80 amp 125VDC breaker, on the high voltage side of the controller
- 5 HP 3 phase 208V motor, encoder without adapter/bushing to mount encoder on the motor shaft (:
- motor leads sitting inside U, V, and W from the controller
- 48V gel cell battery pack .. that *MAY* supply 20 amps for a few seconds
- low voltage side of the controller with connectors

Still to bring in - 12V lithium battery, throttle, slide switch to enable controller

Still to read - where to connect the throttle, where to connect the 'ignition' switch

Still to fab - encoder mount for motor shaft
