Re: Thoughts on using SLI/AGM batteries

For charging I have a ~12 volt and a ~54 volt charger built for this chemistry. My only concern is equalization while each 12 volt battery has it's own internal bms, the 4 is serial do not. I'm thinking I need some sort of equalizer/balancer but not finding any on the market for a 54 volt pack. for...

Re: Why I'm pulling my Bafang BBS02

Old Shimano “333” hubs are weak and problematic even for pedal-only applications. It took at least a few months, but the one I was using on SB Cruiser to give me sort-of-usable pedal-only gearing started self-disassembling, even with only applying torque thru it to begin rolling the trike forward e...

Re: Assistance with Ryobi 48v mower conversion

If the motor did not have a controller before, and was simply switched on/off by the handle, then a controller with a throttle will allow you to control the startup surges, etc. (keeping in mind that if you start it up in the middle of high grass or other highly loaded situation, it will still draw ...

We are using a ESP32 to generate a DAC signal of between 1-3.6V This is sent to the Kelly Controller which has a TPS input choice of 0-5v or 1-4.5v Our signal works on either setting If you send a 1v signal to a controller expecting 0v for "off", then the controller will never stop trying to run th...

Re: Cycle Analyst V3 preview and first beta release

It would be great if you could override PAS by twisting the throttle. Well, it wont' do what *you* need it to do, in taht it doesn't override any limits, but the throttle *does* override PAS, in that if you engage the throttle at all, higher or lower than the PAS output result, the CA's throttle ou...

I replaced the front tyre with a Schwalbe Marathon Plus as I was concerned about getting a flat and looked great. Rode great for a while but then the wire reinforcing split out the side and caused a flat - twice - so I gave up on it. No experience with that specific tire, but whenever I have had th...

Does anyone know if it's possible to set different speed limits for PAS and throttle? Not directly.

The switching can be made automatic-ish by putting a s...

Or just power the CA off the "ignition" line to the controller. That way whenever the controller isn't getting power to it's brain, neither is the CA.

What other settings are related to them, and affect how the system operates when those two are changed?

Before you change the controller, you can first just try setting your minimum throttle in the CA3's Throttle Out menu just a hair above what it takes to activate the motor.
