I’ve gone and purchased a small embedded computer to read the motor temperature and enable/disable the fan for the motor (www.parallax.com). Nice stuff, very easy to work with.
However, since I now have this computing capability, why not use it to set the power settings for the controller as well? The idea is that when the motor is cold, allow more power to flow into the motor, and when it is warm, turn down the power. Azure Dynamics has 3 power settings available (max, norm, economy), and that is selectable by resistance into a line into the controller.
Hmmm. This is gonna be fun. 🙂
