999zip999... Im using a Crystalyte 25A controller, and im using a cycle analyst also so could limit the amps if I decided to increase voltage as I understand these motors can be problematic over 1500w.
Thanks Fechter, thats exactly what I was looking for. Although Im pretty certain my BMS wont trip, I cant be 100% certain. I would like to be certain that if it does trip, it will definately come back on
I see no reason why not too wire the diode in for protection as its serves no function under normal operation anyway and its like a 2 min job soldering it when you know how and then atleast its there if its needed. My only problem now is I dont exactly know how
The problem I have is I need to join 2 wires to the diode but its got 3 pins. Ive never wired a diode like this before but Im guessing it must be wired in a certain direction also.
Fechter, did you take a look at my schematic "battery wiring". I understand now I only need 1 diode, but is it connected in the correct place in my circuit diagram. Or better yet, would it be possible for you to draw me a quick sketch in paint and post it up, just a picture of a 3 pin diode and perhaps label the pins (where they connect to) for me so I can be 100% im not doing something stupid. It would be mucho appreciated.
Im thinking I may use it 48v with the headways for a while but if everything goes smoothly there, I may attemp reconfiguring a 22v 6s1p 8ah lipo so it becomes a 12v 3s2p 16ah lipo. That could be a nice little boost pack for around 60-65v. Although being a 16ah boost pack would make the diode crucial.
