DC Drive systems make you choose between torque and speed. Not so with an AC Drive System. With 18 hp and 81 ft. lbs. of torque, our AC Drive System is unparalleled when it comes to hill climbing capabilities without sacrificing top end speed. With acceleration from 0 to 20 in 4 under 4 seconds and the ability to climb a 20% grade at 15MPH, this is the most powerful Golf Cart Motor on the market.
Although it is very powerful, the AC System is also very efficient, with 20 to 40% less power consumption, drive time will definitely be increased.
AC Regen works differently than DC. All of the power produced with AC Regen is sent back to the batteries. DC Regen wastes most of its power getting the motor to produce voltage so very little, if any, is sent to the batteries. Regen is also on demand, unlike DC carts with Regen coming on when the accelerator pedal is released, the Regen on an AC powered cart is brought on by applying the brakes. This gives the feel of power brakes, and with 70% of your stopping power coming from Regen, you can stop the cart much easier and in a shorter distance, making your cart much safer to drive.
These are just a few of the benefits of using an AC Drive System. To learn more call us in the shop.
