Re: Reading data from my sabvoton controller

Thanks again Manny for starting this topic, and thanks Alan for the isolation advice. I got everything buttoned up yesterday, and it's working great! It's not very pretty right now (I still need to clean some stuff up), but it's perfectly functional. I ended up developing the dashboard in .Net. It's...

Re: Reading data from my sabvoton controller

No luck with the bypass caps. Working on isolation now. Waiting on some parts to be delivered. I'm debating scrapping my arduino screen and just using a $50 Android Fire tablet. A simple BT adapter should provide all the isolation needed. I might try brushing up on my Android development while I'm w...

The Arduino talks directly to the controller and displays information on the screen. The arduino & screen powered via a 12V...

Re: new cyclone 3000 w mid-drive kit?

Just finished my Cyclone build and took it for it's first ride yesterday! Thanks everyone who contributed to the discussion here. Some really great ideas. I'm pretty cheap, so my goal was minimum cost for a decent range mid-drive. I don't do any crazy MTB trail riding, mainly just rail-to-trail type...
