Why do motor controllers fail?

Since FSIP is in the business of remanufacturing controllers which have failed, we have seen it all. There are many reasons for why your controller may fail…some are avoidable, and some are not. Here is a list of common causes for controller failure.
motor control, control, controller, repair, replace, refurbish, remanufacture, rebuild, fix, restore, buy, purchase, distributor, Curtis, Danaher. Inmotion, navitas, sevcon, sevcontrol, zapi, forklift, golf cart

Component Failure
Controls contain hundreds, if not thousands, of tiny components, each of which plays a part in the controller’s operation. These components may be mosfets, diodes, resistors or IC’s among others. A manufacturer’s defect on just one of these tiny components can lead to failure of the entire controller. Many of them are manufactured for a life expectancy of a certain number of cycles, and when their time is up, the controller’s life cycle may come to an end as well.

External Input Failure
Your motor controller may have a dozen or more inputs connected to it, such as speed sensors or digital and analog inputs. Failure of any one of those inputs can often cause failure for the entire controller as well.

Liquid Intrusion
…or more simply put, the controller gets wet. It is commonly known that electronics and moisture are a poor mix, one that will easily cause your controller to stop working.

Improper Cooling Design & Mounting
Controllers suffer and fail under high heat conditions. Omitting thermal compound during installation, or improper mounting can cause temperatures to rise and controllers to fail. Often cycling a controller between hot and cold environments can also cause an early demise.

Vibration
Prolonged vibration during normal vehicle use can cause components to shake loose, or fracture and interrupt normal controller function or result in failure.

Abuse & Improper Usage
Using your vehicle or motor control improperly can lead to an early demise for your motor controller. Examples of such abuse include driving the vehicle in a way that is unintended by the manufacturer, prolonged motor stall conditions, and improper installation of the controller. All of these things can and should be avoided to get the longest possible lifespan out of your controller.

If you are experiencing a controller failure, let FSIP help! Simply ship the controller to us, and include this form with your shipment to expedite the process. We will fully remanufacture your control and ship it back to you with a comprehensive one year warranty, or call to speak to an FSIP representative! 1-800-333-1194

SMARTUP Battery Monitor

Batteries can be one of the largest expenditures for businesses with electric vehicles designed to keep the operations moving. Wouldn’t it be great to understand how the batteries are being used each day, to see if there are opportunities to train the users? Wouldn’t it be great if you should show them factual data about what is happening inside of the battery every time they only partially charge it, or charge it too long? Doesn’t that sound like a smart investment?

With over 45 years of experience with electric vehicles, FSIP has seen firsthand how important battery monitoring and maintenance can be. That’s why we’re pleased to offer the SMARTUP battery monitoring device.

This easy-to-install device measures, analyzes and stores voltage, current and amp hours. The information is easily sent to the SMARTVIEW program though a USB port, which allows the user to view the charge & discharge cycles of the battery.

With samples taken every 6 minutes by default and customizable options like operating current threshold, anti-opportunity charging alarms and undercharge alerts, the SMARTUP is a smart way to save money on battery purchases.

The SMARTUP is also available with optional probes to measure temperature and/or electrolyte levels. More information and spec sheets can be found here on our battery restoration website.

Manufacturing Services from FSIP

FSIP's Blog

For more than 45 years, Flight Systems Industrial Products has excelled in designing and manufacturing custom products. Beginning with aircraft and runway strobe lights in 1968, we expanded into solid state controls for forklifts and other battery powered vehicles by the mid-seventies. Our capabilities continued to expand through the years to include gauges, services tools and newer technology controls for forklifts that allowed the replacement of outdated electrical systems. A partnership with General Electric in the early nineties allowed us to manufacture their lower volume items and ultimately to acquire that division of their business in 2010.

Today, FSIP is located in a 42,000 square foot facility in Central Pennsylvania with an expansion project underway that will add 15,000 square feet to our facility by late 2015. We employee more than 120 individuals including sales, marketing, engineering and manufacturing specialists. FSIP is able to offer a wide variety of manufacturing services…

Golf Cart Conversion Kits

If you work on enough golf carts over time you realize that every golf cart is different from the last one you worked on. Sometimes it is nearly impossible to find parts for the odd ball carts you come across, such as aftermarket controllers. After hearing requests for many different controllers over the years, we have developed conversion kits that take you from an old, obsolete, foreign and hard to find controller to a brand new popular Curtis or GE controller. Our conversion kits come with all the necessary harnesses and installation instructions to make the transfer easy and painless.

Fairplay Carts have used a few different controllers in the past that have been hard to find, and when we did get units in house we could not remanufacture them. Our engineers developed a few separate conversions using Curtis controllers to replace Kinetek KCCA0004 and KCCA0038 controllers used in Fairplay Carts. We also found the need to develop a conversion for the Logisystems controllers found in Stealth vehicles because of the high demand. A few of the older golf cart controller system components have gone obsolete such as the Club Car Regen 1 and the Yamaha G8/G9 Carts. We offer stock conversions as well as upgraded conversions with additional amps for both of those. Recently, we have found the need to create a conversion for the Bombardier vehicles which used a Curtis controller that is no longer made. In the past few years, Yamaha used a fully potted controller in their YDRE carts called a Moric Controller. There is epoxy inside this controller which makes it impossible to disassemble and repair. We have developed two conversions using GE and Curtis Controllers to upgrade your vehicles to 300 or 500 amps.

If you have a golf cart with a series motor and you want to change the controller, or the cart does not have a controller in it, we have a solution! We manufacture the adjustable GE Star controller which is compatible with most series carts. Just provide the make & model of your cart, voltage & amperage, the accelerator type and your regen braking & high pedal disable preferences; and we’ll provide a custom solution for you!
