For BRLS, consider converting to a Kelly. I had a Solectria that blew out
its Mosfets. It was converted to IGBT, which proceeded to blow out (bad
motor). I showed the Solectria controller to a couple EEs and they said it
was really old technology and to replace it. I ended up swapping to a Kelly
KBL controller and upgraded from the BRLS 11 motor to a BRLS 16. I have
upgraded the Kelly controller several times. Something about "Mr. Toad's
Wild Ride" and a desire for more power. Since then, Kelly has come out with
a KHB controller that can output more power and is programmable.

IIRC, the earliest Solectria and Brusa controllers were analog, not
microprocessor controlled (thus no computer interface). I think that
includes the brushless motor controllers, but I'm not 100% sure.
Sorry to be so vague, but this is just going from dim recollections of
long-ago conversations with (then) Solectria and early Solectria employees.
Others with more direct experience may have better information.
