Yes Ypedal, that's what I experienced too, connect the white wire to enable regen generally and then make a switch somehow to on/off the regen on black/yellow. But Lyen told me it's possible to enable throttle-regen - and I can't get it to work so far...
Otherwise the controllers are great and Edward Lyen was always super-helpful...
I take it this is the problem you're referring too:
Raphael wrote:1. possibility: enable throttle regen. However, I am not able to make that work. I configured it with Lyens software (slip mode = true) but it doesn't work at all. It only brakes when I short the brake-wires, I would have expected it regens when I zero the throttle?
If so, then to make throttle regen work (which is really throttle off regen for these controllers) have you followed the instructions in Will Newton's paper in that thread? Specifically these instructions:"16. EBSLimVoltage- This is the maximum regeneration voltage. !! Dependent on the R12 voltage divider !!The same rules apply for the REGEN voltages as LVC voltages shown above. 55V, 60V, 75V correspond to 66V, 72V, and 90V"
"26. SlipChargeMode- The Slip Current Charge Mode feature is either "ON or OFF" and allows regen from the throttle. Throttling back when cruising will regen the Direct Drive hub motor and slow it down to about 15% of full speed. The eBrake regen and the Throttle regen act independent of each other. I set the Throttle regen to "OFF" by default (I like to coast freely when throttled back). Values are 0: UP 15 Mark (throttle regen) and 1:Only Fake Indicate (no throttle regen)"
"27. EBS Level- This sets the strength of the regeneration. A higher number is stronger.When the eBrakes are applied the Direct Drive hub motor will slow down to a complete stop. values are 0: (low), 1: (med.), and 2: (high) Setting 2: has been recommended for 26" wheels if you are using regen and the other numbers for smaller wheels."
In addition, you have to follow this instruction to jumper the regen link:"Jumping (or connecting a switch) from BK to GND activates the Regen braking feature."
The most common reason for regen not working is either the regen link not being there, the programming not being set or the battery pack voltage being over the limit.
FWIW I agree with Ypedal, throttle off regen feels wrong to me, it was like engine braking on a car and just felt a bit odd on a bike.
Please ask questions on the forum, rather than by PM, as it helps others and you'll get a better range of answers.
