Other motors I have tested or got information on.
This is kind of a bad motor page.
Here I will try to save you guys some time and money
in testing motors to use as a generator.
I know there are different models of motors made by the same company that made some of these below, so just because the one I tested failed does not mean that any motor made by the same company won't work. It depends on how they were made and you must keep in mind that these motors we use were not designed to be generators, they were intended to be used as a motor only.
I will start with some tested scooter motors.
The motor shown above is a part number MY1016.
It is made by United Motor as best I can tell anyway. It is
rated at 36 volts DC 11.5 amps at 2500 rpm.
It will work in a direct drive as long as your
average wind is 40 to 70 mph and you put a small rotor on it because
the bearings are not going to last long with lateral thrust from a
rotor pushing in on the shaft.
This motor is rated at 24 volts DC 19 Amps at 2600 rpm.
It has the same shaft and output characteristics as
it counterpart the MY1016
This is the MY1020 rated at 36 volts DC 27 Amps at 2500 rpm.
Once again lacks in bearings to handle lateral
thrust from a rotor, and needs high rpm's to produce energy.
1/2" "D" style shaft.
The above motor picture was sent to me with the
question of will this Ametek motor work? First of all it is
NOT an Ametek motor.
DC Fan Motors
The above motors are 12 volt DC 2750 to 3600 rpm Permanent magnet motor designed as an automotive fan motors. THEY ALL NEED A TON OF RPM'S and will do basically NOTHING for you!
I have spun all kinds of these types of motors. Just figure this, if it was made to run a fan in your car it is not going to cut the mustard as a generator. I don't care if you gear it up the output will not be more than 30 watts max.
Raw Tread Mill Motors
The above motor is a 110 volt DC 1.5 Amp at 5100
rpm. There are a few different motors similar to this out
there and I have had a couple to test. They all seem to run
out pretty much the same way.
More to come as I do testing or get the information from friends/customers.
