Re: Furnace ECM motor usable for an E-Bike?

I too was surprised to find 3 magnets, guessing it was due to its design being a low rpm/high torque... If the admin wishes to combine these threads or can great idea I too don't have a specific use for this motor but who knows it might wind up on a kids go cart...this motor has a single winding, Y ...

This has 3 magnets on the rotor and an 18 pole stator, a 4 inch long 1/2 inch diameter shaft with a D shape . It came off a 5 ton commercial air conditioner squirrel cage fan. These should be readily a...

I did a while back, re-read it I am wondering if it is a claw style rotor with magnets assisting a wound rotor... the only style I had seen disassembled is the gen2 versions
