Re: Votol EM150/2 "communication abnormal" issue w/ CAN Bus

Glad you got it working Oldspot, that's great news!
So you reverted back to Windows 8 since you're saying 10 blocks the driver? Any way you can share a picture of the USB to CAN adapter that you're using? I have ordered a new one from Electro & CO since I believe mine is trash.

Re: Votol EM150/2 "communication abnormal" issue w/ CAN Bus

If it makes any difference, there are some USB to serial drivers (which are probably used as the front end of the USB-CANBUS adapters) that Windows10/etc will not "allow" to be installed. (or if installed, will be blocked from use). There is at least one webpage out there about this, but ...

I bought a QS138 V3 kit that came with a Votol EM-150/2 controller (CAN Bus) and am one of the unlucky ones, as I have yet to successfully connect the PC software to the controller. I can open the COM Port, but each time I press "connect", it seems to time out and give me the dreaded, &quo...

Votol EM150/2 "communication abnormal" issue w/ CAN Bus

I ordered a QS138 70H V3 kit that came with a Votol EM150/2 CAN Bus motor controller, but am having an issue connecting to it with the PC. It seems that I am not the first to have this problem as I've seen several instances of a connection issue with the Votol controllers across this forum. I've als...

1000W hub motor on 16" rim (20" tire) w/ motor controller (SOLD)

I laced a 1000W hub motor into a 16" rim and used it for a project but am no longer using it. So I figured I'd see if anyone else is interested. I've pushed it up to 1500W with the motor getting a little warm, but it can take more power if needed. 20" tire on a 16" rim. Motor controll...

Re: 1kW Front Hub Motor on Cheap Chinese Folding Bike

Thank you guys for all of the input! I have been reading back through old forum posts and just trying to learn as much as I can. You all shared some good knowledge. I am leaning toward a non-radial configuration and a spoke angle of somewhere between 50 and 70 degrees. I don't have solid math or fre...

More photos of the hub motor fitting between the forks and into the dropouts. It definitely looks like it fits?

Re: 1kW Front Hub Motor on Cheap Chinese Folding Bike

Interesting. I think I ran across these before, but they weren't ever listed with more than 500W. No cross pattern, just radially laced. I don't know enough theory about lacing patterns, crossed vs. not but I suppose I should read up on it Just for a bit of perspective this is a large direct drive m...

Re: 1kW Front Hub Motor on Cheap Chinese Folding Bike

The rim measures 16" exactly in diameter with a tape measure. 406mm is like 15.98", so it looks like a 16" rim, with a 20" tire. The Grin calculator has a selection for 20" (406) for nominal diameter in the Rim settings section. I think this is right? Keyword in the title be...

Re: 1kW Front Hub Motor on Cheap Chinese Folding Bike

I see the wheels often referred to as 20" despite the rim size being 16". Is that correct to say? This would be a 20" 406 wheel? Careful -- most folders take a 20" tire on a 16" (406mm) rim , but Brompton folders take a 16" tire on a 13.7" rim . Your donor/frame s...

Re: 1kW Front Hub Motor on Cheap Chinese Folding Bike

You're right about it being the open end/slide in type of front fork. The dropout width for the front seems to be the standard 100mm. At least I believe that's the standard. The hub motor is a "front hub motor" so it also has a drop out width of 100mm, which matches. I'll take some picture...

1kW Front Hub Motor on Cheap Chinese Folding Bike

Ok, I know this sounds crazy but hear me out? I want to lace a generic 1000W hub motor into a cheap chinese folding bike front wheel. Why you ask? For the same reason that some jackass would put an LS motor in a Yugo. Is it a bad idea? Yes. Inherently risky? Yes. Is that part of the reason that I am...

Not sure what happened with the seller. I got 2 of these from him, although they did take a while to ship after I paid. Hopefully you get your money back or he shows up and gives an explanation.

Re: 70$ Li-Ion Battery Pack 48V 10.5Ah 500w output

I bought a couple of these packs and just received them in the mail (thanks eequip!). I haven't been able to test them yet, but the voltage for both is sitting around 52V. Based on datasheets for the Panasonic-Sanyo NCR18650GA, these cells should be able to discharge at 10A continously. So in a 13S3...

I bought a Voloci from skeetab5780 a couple of years ago and have since moved from Atlanta to LA for a job in Aerospace. I am finally getting around to working on the bike. The goal is to get it running by any means necessary, which likely means throwing a 48V pack on and twisting the throttle. Long...
