The Lucas Bedford vans used a sepex motor. Armature control was via an SCR, with the field driven via a bipolar transistor circuit. Battery voltage was 216v nominal of 3KQ11 tubular plate lead acid. It was usually the field controller that The first version of the Reva G-Wiz is a sepex motor

Hi Dave etc Normally the GE etc Sepex or Finer field shunt motors use a FET H bridge that diagonally PWM's in forward direction on the field and then when you flip in reverse it immediately uses the other two diagonal Fets to go backwards. No noticeable delay from forward to reverse. Have a
