All this combined with superior AC technology makes short work of tough requests.
  • Maintenance free AC motor offers better control for full motor performance, as well as higher possible speeds and better torque at low speeds. Maintenance-free brushless electric motor equipped with temperature and speed sensors.
  • Onboard / portable high frequency PFC battery charger provides reliable, quality charging. High frequency power factor-corrected charger improves battery performance and prevents power surges. High efficiency and global AC input. Available in inboard or portable models with several voltage options.
  • Long-lasting, battery-saving LED lights provides stronger, longer-lasting lighting for greater safety. Efficient design is easy on the battery current and requires minimal maintenance. LED lights that are both esthetic and built to last under all conditions.
  • AC controller with sealed connectors paired with multifunction display allows for precise speed control for greater safety and vehicle performance. Includes indicators for speed, battery state of charge, hour meter, odometer and fault warnings. Password-protected parameters and monitoring capability.
