    Sounds like a treadmill motor. Where did you get it? If it's a variable speed motor wouldn't amps also vary with the speed of the motor? There is a treadmill company called "Star-trak". Hope this helps. Send pictures.

    From the info it is a 90 volt 2500 rpm motor.
    By the calculator it has a volt to rpm ratio of .036 which just comes in as a good motor for windpower.

    Do you think the 24" TurboTorque blades would work to get the RPM's Konnon needs?
