The History of Alltrax Electric
Vehicle Motor Controllers
The Electric Vehicle:
As the threat of world stability drives oil prices higher,
consumers and enthusiasts are looking into
alternative drive systems, taking control of their
energy consumption, but still want the performance
expected from the hydrocarbon engine counterparts.

The Company Founder:
The company founders, Damon Crockett (a power
electronics engineer of 26 years from Klamath Falls
Oregon) and Jeff Bradley developed high power motor
controllers for electric racing vehicles.  

A few of these powerful
Electric Race cars had the
capability of dumping
750,000 watts of power into
two motors during an
8 second 1/4 mile run down
the race track.  Obviously requires controllers that can
"handle the extremes".

Performance Electric Motor Controllers.

    counterparts. (Including the tire smoking Sparrow shown at
    upper right)
  • 2000; Moved the company from Bellingham Washington to
    Grants Pass Oregon and formed the Alltrax (2001) and PCE
    (2005) companies.
  • Alltrax Inc - Manufacturing, Sales, Marketing, Accounting
  • PCE - Power Control Engineering and controlling
    intellectual capital and intellectual property.
  • 2004; JIT-TQM Launched Just-In-Time (JIT), Lean Western
    manufacturing, and tools from Total Quality Management
    Processes (TQM).  These Methods reduce lead times, reduce
    waste, and instill top quality control into our staff.
  • 2006; OEM Instituted Original Equipment Manufacturing (OEM)
    Services and After Market Services (AMS) by helping the EV
    industry design, build, and manufacture their products using our
    expertise and collaborative team resources.
  • 2008; System Components such as solenoids, diodes, pre-
    charge resistors, and heat sink assemblies to make your
    purchases easier.


  • 2009; SPM Controller.  This new platform changes everything:  
    Internal heatsink, 32 bit microprocessor, USB 2.0 programming,
    Color Coded Terminals for easy installation, Dual E-Z-Go
    connector (5-pin and 4-spades), Hi-Reliability serviceable Fan,
    200 through 800amp Heavy Duty.


  • 2015; XCT - SHUNT Regenerative Advanced Motor Controller.  
    This new platform with 4 year development changes
    everything:  Internal heatsink, 32 bit microprocessor, USB 2.0
    programming, 4x or 2x mounting bolt pattern similar to industry
    standards, easy installation, Dedicated connectors (no
    adapters!), Optional Hi-Reliability serviceable Fan for 300-
    400amp models, Fan included on 500amp models, 300 through
    500amp 36-48V models. Case is ABS+PC510 Thermal Plastic
    with 94V0 and 5VA flame rating. Epoxy filled for any
    environment. All Copper heatsinks.

  • 2016; SR - SERIES Advanced Motor Controller. Leveraging
    from the design of the XCT platform, the SPM was ported into
    the new physical shape as the XCT. The SR uses the latest high
    powered and high efficiency MOSFETS to provide awesome
    power and performance in a industry standard footprint.  With
    USB programmability and user input personality switch is a cost
    effective power house. Dedicated color coded user cconnectors
    (no adapters!), Optional Hi-Reliability serviceable Fan for 300-
    400amp models, Fan included on 500-600amp models. SR 300
    through 600amp 36-48V models with SR 300 through 500amp
    72 Volt models. Case is ABS+PC510 Thermal Plastic with 94V0
    and 5VA flame rating. Epoxy filled for any environment. All
    Copper heatsinks.

  • 2016; FN Control boxes. The XCT and SR have user inputs for
    the customer to select a profile, adjust speed, or adjust regen
    (XCT) while driving the vehicle allowing for mild to wild
    performance selection from the front seat.
  1. FN1 - SR - SERIES for Speed control
  2. FN2 - XCT Speed and Regn knobs
  3. FNKS - XCT 3-mode selector switch for 3 profiles, NORM, USER1
    and USER2, along with a Regen knob, all configuable using the
    Alltrax Toolkit to suite your needs.  Set up a street mode,
    performance mode, and when the kids come over - a Child
    mode!
