As we move into our third year of installing and carrying the Masterflux line of air conditioning systems I thought I would go ahead and put up some of the information that we have learned.
Over this series of posts, I hope you will find the information you need to make a decision on which compressor and controller you need for your project. I will start by listing our “high voltage” configuration.
This configuration is for vehicles with traction packs that are roughly 150V to a max of 400V. The controller has both a low and high voltage cutoff at 120V and 420V respectively so be aware of your full charge voltage as well as how far your pack will sag as it depletes under load.
We suggest that you purchase the following Masterflux components:
- SIERRA06-0982Y3 (with the SAE #8 and #10 fitings)
- CONTROLLER 025F0140-03 (120-420V DC – Flanged heatsink)
- WIRING HARNESS
- Vibration isolation rubber mounts (your choice)
1″ tall grommets w/ 5/16″ bolt hole
5/8″ tall grommets with 5/16″ bolt holes
1″ tall grommets with 1/4″ bolt holes
Masterflux also produces a Manual Control Device if you don’t want to wire up your own control circuit. You will find it in our store here:
Also, you will find that Masterflux has recommended the use of a diode in battery powered applications. You will find it in our store here:
The links above go into the REVOLT Electric Vehicle components store where you should be able to process your order and find more details on the components. If an item is out of stock, you can go ahead and order it and we will get it from Masterflux as quickly as possible. It can take up to 10-12 weeks, but they often ship much quicker than that.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask via the store’s contact form and we’ll get right back to you.
