For over seven years, NetGain has teamed with Warfield Electric Company of Frankfort, Illinois, to develop a line of DC electric motors specifically designed for the unusual operational dynamics of an electric vehicle. The result has been the very successful WarP Motors . We currently supply WarP Motors in 8”, 9” 11” and 13” diameters, plus the new TransWarP Motors . We also offer ImPulse Motors in 8” and 9” diameters. These motors offer distinctive standard features on every motor that we feel make it the best choice for an electric vehicle motor in the industry.
WarP ™ Motors
These motors utilizes large style comm's and brushes. The comm's are key-locked onto the drive shaft -- reducing the likelihood of lifting any commutator bars. Class "H" insulation is used throughout the motor. The drive shaft and tail shaft have standard keyways cut into them.
ImPulse 9 ™ Motor.
The ImPulse 9 Motors have almost 30% greater brush area than 8" motors, larger bearings, and more commutator area. The commutator bars are more securely attached to the arbor, so they will be less likely to lift. The drive shaft is bored for a pilot bearing and drilled & tapped for a 5/16 - 18 bolt. The tail shaft also has a 1/4 - 20 bolt hole to mount tach sensors or secure couplers and accessories. Again, we have duplicated the ADC 8" mounting bolt pattern allowing clients to use preexisting mounting adapters. Class "H" insulation is used throughout the motor. The drive shaft and tail shaft have standard keyways cut into them.
TransWarP ™ Motors
This motor has a "shorty" tail shaft housing from a Chevrolet Turbo 400 transmission fitted to the drive end-bell (may be ordered with or without housing!) This is because the drive end shaft is not the typical 1.125" single-keyed type, but rather a hefty 1.370", 32-tooth involute spline that is identical to the tail shaft spline of a Turbo 400 transmission. In other words, this motor was designed to replace a transmission and couple directly to a drive shaft!
We have added grease fittings (as you now have a slip-yoke assembly...). We use the industry standard 1350 universal, so you can easily adapt it to any manufacturers drive shaft! The motor also has brush wear indicators and a temperature snap switch. It has the same high efficiency fan and massive commutator and brushes as the coresponding WarP Motor.
