    Sevcon controller question

    I took a look at the website today and saw that the Gen4 was only good for 80 something volts. Really? Don't they make controllers for over 100 volts, or am I missing something?

    That's really interesting. Max operating voltage of gen4 is 116V. This means that a 32S lifepo4 pack should work fine with this controller...

    Did anyone already experience 100V+ with gen4 ?

    Well, it fits a market. For a market thet requires higher voltage, they have Gen4 Size 8 that goes 125VDC up to 400VDC, and a GPAC that goes 150VDC to 350VDC.
