    DD alternative to mac

    Thank you for your suggestions. After playing a bit with the simulator, the RH212 seems indeed to be the closest to the mac motor: Grade 0% - Throttle 100% Grade 10% - Throttle 85% Other motors deviate more and more (Grade 10% - Throttle 85%): Crystalyte H3540 Leaf 35mm 5T Grinv V2 FST Not...

    DD alternative to mac

    The motor is fine on the other bike, i suspect something changed in the controller (or I was much more patient setting it up back when I assembled this bike) but can't figure what. Frustration accumulated indeed but I'd like to give this controller a chance to be useful again... Well I must...

    DD alternative to mac

    Hi, thank you so much for your help on this. Unfortunately I ran out of logic with this second bike... I got tired of changing parameters/cables etc... It used to work better with the other mac motor but not anymore. It has the first version of phaserunner while the other bike is a V2. I tried...

    DD alternative to mac

    Hi, Sorry for this once again 'what motor' thread but I could not find a message answering my questions. I have 2 ebikes with phaserunner controllers and mac motors. The first one is rock solid, never had a problem configuring it and changing PR parameters, although the initial configuration...

    controller for a MAC

    Final update: I bought another Phaserunner and I'll live with the 96A phase current limit (soft start). It is compact, versatile, easy to use, and powerful enough for small builds. Now I'll have some time to think about building my Lebowski's controller or try adapting VESC ones for future...

    ebrake HWBS and throttle connection

    Hi all, for my next build, I plan not to use a cycle analyst, but a simple throttle connected to the controller (phaserunner). However, in case water gets in my cheap throttle (or any other stupid thing) I'd like to integrate a HWBS sensor on my brakes (as an extra safety to fault voltage...

    VESC for ebike ?

    Hello all, I have been looking around for the perfect controller and I am more and more interested about VESC project. The 'only' problem is to switch it from skateboard power levels to something more adapted for ebike use. I LOVE Marcos project and other members using IGBTs etc, but it's way...

    controller for a MAC

    PV is not FOC and does not have torque/current throttle. This is why it has been excluded from comparison list, but it still looks like a nice and affordable controller. People asked him so often whether his controller can run a mac motor that I think he would hate me for that :lol:

    controller for a MAC

    Thank you for your feedback Izeman, that lebowski idea is making its way. Love the smd version of the PCB also. As lazy as I am, I wish somebody will start providing kits for it (or assembled ones like it happened for VESC). For this build I will need something that requires less assembling...

    ASI Acclerated Systems controllers BAC2000 review

    Wow thanks for the feedback ElectricGod. I also noticed the (available) documentation does look sparse (eg. couldn't find how cruise control is supposed to be setup but it looks like there is an input for that). One surprising thing is that you cannot access documentation before being a...

    controller for a MAC

    Hello Lebowski, thank you for the suggestion. I read threads about your controller and this is definitely something I would like to support and try... Great job BTW :) Your controller seems like the ideal one but I will need something more plug and play for this build. I know some basic...

    controller for a MAC

    After sending more emails, no answer from Sabvoton but their distributor "QS Motor" kindly answered my question. He confirmed that Sabvoton SSC 72150 is limited to 30000erpm. In conclusion the sabvoton will not work for this configuration with a mac motor.

    controller for a MAC

    I take advantage of this thread to look for the perfect controller for my next ebike (Mac Motor 8T, 14s 30A 18650 battery). My first ebike has a phaserunner controller which works perfectly with the same motor, but I would like to get something a bit more punchy when starting (96 phase Amp...

    Mobipus Controllers

    Sounds like a great piece of controller ! I couldn't find in the manual the max erpm that can be managed. Anyone has this information ?

    controller for a MAC

    Just an update regarding my previous answer, Kelly controller is probably NOT a good option for MAC motors. First, I was about to buy a sabvoton and realized the max erpm might not be enough (30000 ? to be confirmed) so I read the 20 pages about kelly FOC controllers because they claimed...

    Sabvoton 72150 for geared mac motor ?

    Update: no news from sabvoton yet but found this document (from qsmotor) apparently referring to SSC controllers and stating 30000erpm... Not sure how reliable it is though. http://www.cnqsmotor.com/upfile/2016/04/20160427204822_414.pdf 30000erpm is ~45kmh max... BTW when the limiting factor...

    controller for a MAC

    Hi ! Just a +1 to what has been said about the Phaserunner. Works great with MAC, I had to put phase current limit to near max (96A) to get decent push when starting but then it's a breeze. Also had to tune kp ki parameters (don't forget to put 0 in rad before that) in order to avoid...

    Sabvoton 72150 for geared mac motor ?

    Ok I tried to read as much posts as possible on these controllers. Couldn't find this information on kathy's posts, just found a reference to erpm here: https://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=62240&hilit=sabvoton&start=50#p944624. However it's a 2014 post talking about the first...

    Sabvoton 72150 for geared mac motor ?

    Thank you, you are right. 50000 is actually conservative for my use as with the phaserunner @ 14S I get 60km/h and the wheel circumference is roughly 2 meters (60000mhour/2m/60min*80poles=~40000erpm). I don't plan going faster anyway. Problem is that I can't find the sabvoton limit on any...

    Sabvoton 72150 for geared mac motor ?

    Hello all, I previously built a nice ebike using phaserunner and mac 8T motor. Very happy with it but for a second build I am planning to get another mac motor 8T with a different controller. After a lot of reading on the forum I am willing to order a sabvoton 72150 controller (probably...

    Cycle Analyst V3 preview and first beta release

    Awesome ! thank you for your comprehensive answer. The EEPROM access is a very interesting exercise... But a communication protocol with values checking (etc...) would probably be safer. Although I realize that I (almost) never use cycle analyst buttons while riding but I keep using it as a...

    Cycle Analyst V3 preview and first beta release

    Wow that is genius ! Imagine if a future CA firmware allows it to be controlled through basic commands on the TTL port. The app could become the main interface, then you have countless options for stealth mounting, data logging etc... while keeping all greatness from CA... Is it actually...

    Cycle Analyst V3 preview and first beta release

    Thank you teklektik, I'll go for an aux potentiometer on my wife's ebike. Don't worry I totally understand that you have to go through a lot of work for updates and that it requires to take a lot into consideration. You are doing an amazing job and all of us are already spoiled with the CA :D...

    Cycle Analyst V3 preview and first beta release

    Thank you teklektik, your suggestion is indeed a great workaround ! As I am trying to avoid adding more things on my handlebar, is it something that could (theoretically) be implemented in software in the long term, or did you reach some microcontroller limitations on this (eg. available...
