2017 “Gen4.5”
2017 models reference higher current ratings without publicized evidence of a Sevcon model change.
These improvements seem to be in choosing MOSFETs with increased power switching efficiencies to allow higher continuous and peak current levels.
“Gen4.5” has been a term heard describing these improvements.
