The characteristic centrepiece of a GOVECS scooter is the belt drive. We have based the entire drive system on it from the very beginning and spent tremendous amounts of time and testing for it. Now that we drove more than a million of test kilometres we are proud of this all-encompassing drive system, which makes a highly efficient energy utilization and an optimal interaction of the components possible and at the same time ensures unique driving experience.
One of the crucial characteristics for accuracy, efficiency and time control of the drivetrain is the special angle of the magnetic Encoder-IC and a switch that is directly integrated in the die-cast motor housing. With that the torque is improved and the measurements can be carried out with a relative accuracy of +/- 1 LSB. This ensures a smooth control of the drive system during acceleration. When the driver actuates the throttle, this produces a flat power curve that is much more comfortable than the binary jerky movement of our competitors.
Every year we succeed in making our motor even more efficient, so that they work with the same performance mapping at low speed as well. This, in turn, helps to continuously increase the life of the belt. The bigger pinion provides for a smoother acceleration up to the maximum speed at lower energy consumption.
In combination with our own battery management system this provides for a perfect interaction of the technical components and leads to maximum efficiency.
