MOTOR PHASE WIRES:
Tips for nOObs:
* TPS Switch is not used. Disable it or tied it to ground. It is a high pedal switch for a fork lift
* TPS analog is your throttle
* Brake switch goes to your ebrakes
* Brake analog is a variable brake. I dont use it. Just set the regen to brake to your desired level with the hand switch
* The voltages and currents are not perfect. Tune them in. DONT trust the LVC
* Current is MOTOR current
* If you dont own a CA then dont hook up this controller
* Pay the $19 for the J2 wiring cable. It will change your life from hell to heaven. All potted, labeled, bundled, and ready to go. Best thing ever.
* Download the newest firmware (Feb 09 it is V209)
* Spend time with the software to learn it
* Turn down the "rate" of the throttle for a more smooth response
* Fine tune the throttle end points
* Explicitly try Torque mode, Speed mode, and mixed mode
* Avoid TPS throttle
* Ask before you get frustrated
* DON'T PM me with questions. Ask in a thread or start a new thread and PM me to get my attention.
* Understand the schematic before wiring. It is a little confusing
* Ground is common. Never fuse it.
* Learn how to read the error codes
* If your new install is loud then your halls may be out of phase
* Please ask questions in the forum before claiming your controller is broken and sending it back
* If you are considering a Kelly but are not a DIY person look elsewhere. It is complicated to wire. This is NOT an xlyte plug and play.
Thats all for now.
I wish all new Kelly owners luck.
For the record, Kelly is the best company you could ever want to do business with. 100% guarantee on the controllers. No questions asked in the case of a problem. You ship it back and they ship one to you. Brand new same day. You cant beat that. Steven answers emails fast. If you want a no-nonsense controller that kicks ass this is the one for you. Mine has never even gotten warm under 100V 60A cont. use. I launch at 190A and no problems. Firmware updates are often so you dont have to worry about problems.
