Don't know what age of series cart you have but regardless, if you wanted Regen braking, then no. Not without changing the controller, wiring harness and F/R switch possibly installing an MCor etc. The regen motor has a plug/pigtail of smaller wires which connect back to the controller and manage the feedback between the motor and controller to determine max speed/rpm, accel pedal position etc. It would be a "wholesale" conversion.

Now if your asking would it just spin like any motor and power your cart when 48v is supplied to it from your existing series setup - I'm not smart enough to know, but my suspicion is "not very well, if at all" due to the field windings being quite different between Sepex and Series. Hopefully a smarter person on this forum can expand upon that opinion.

Yes and no. A Regen uses a Sepex motor. Regen is a system, Sepex is a motor. Regen and IQ systems both use Sepex motors.

"Regen" is short for "Regenerative Braking"

Regenerative braking is possible only with a SepEx (Separately Excited) motor, so yes, Regen cars are SepEx

There are controllers in the Market that can do regen with Series motors, like the Kelly controller KDZ48401 for example. The cool thing is that they use a 0-5v type input for the brake regen so you can control it from coast to a full regen brake. I have no experience and have never used them, just FYI that it is not a limitation of the series motor itself, at least for low voltage, just the controller.
