Re: KT controllers, can you configure watts delivered at various levels?

The ebay details says it comes with the LCD3 and dual voltage controller. I've owned a lot of the LCD3's. It has 5 PAS levels, but while you can configure it (using the C5 parameter) anywhere from 50% to 100% of the rated current, the setting applies to all 5 PAS levels, and does not affect the thr...

Re: How does ANT BMS balance the battery pack and how long does it take?

You can charge the bad group via the balance leads but unplugging the bms and tap into the leads for that group. If you use a lipo or other charger, where you can set the voltage and charge current, then set it to 4.2V and ~2A charge current and monitor the voltage until it matches the others.

Re: speed relationship between wheel and bike

Hello everyone, I am a student from Taiwan and I am wondering:.... PS: Assume that two wheel's speed are synchronous . ...will the wheels still remain the same RPM ? Are you changing the assumptions? Does this bike have both wheels on the ground so the wheels spin at the same rate, or is it flying ...

Re: Puzzling problem - help!

Figured it out: If the PAS is set to zero on the display, the throttle won't work by itself. In all this time, I never encountered that issue. I suppose, by luck, I always had it randomly set to something else and rarely had reason to alter it. I think you want P4=0, C4=0 to have throttle all the t...

I'd rather stay in full control. For instance, if I'm trying to cross a busy street/intersection, I'd rather ride out the wheelie than have the motor stop in the middle of the road.

Re: Do some motors have more/less torque with the same power levels?

It wouldn't. Torque is a function of torque constant (Kt) in Nm/A, amps, and gearing. The Mini is geared with 9.55:1 primary torque multiplication, whereas the 3000 is geared with 6:1 primary torque multiplication, but the 3000 probably has higher Kt to compensate. So if you use the same controller...

Re: Do some motors have more/less torque with the same power levels?

I'm shopping for a new motor and I'm quite confused on the amount of torque a motor has. In my case, my old motor was a mini cyclone or cyclone 1680w and I'm looking to upgrade to the 3 kw cyclone. I keep hearing that the cyclone 3000 has a lot more torque. If I use the same power motor controller ...

Re: Installing Pedal Assist Sensor - How far from the sensor should the magnet be?

They should line up, They should be as close as possible without rubbing together.

This is what it looks like - I did bend the bracket a bit so...

Re: Custom fiberglass / carbon frame battery case

A lot of epoxies are fortified with metal (steel, silver, copper, etc.) in order to provide greater strength (doesn't compress/deform), but that also makes them conductive. I know of no metal filled thermal or structural epoxies that are conductive. Even silver filled thermal paste is generally not...

Going to try epoxy.
Just make sure the epoxy you are using isn't conductive, if you're using for your battery pack. A lot of epoxies are fortified with metal (steel, silver, copper, etc.) in order to provide greater strength (doesn't compress/deform), but that also makes them conductive.
