Which controller?

Post by bionicon » Dec 10, 2017 7:05 am

We all love the direct torque-feeling that electric motors can provide, but mostly will the controller not give that direct power and will there always be a sort of delay.
Maybe will it be good to know which controllers give that direct power (amps) .
So if You know such a controller let me know. :)

Have a look at our OpenSource firmware for the BMSBatttery/Kunteng controllers, maybe they can provide what you are looking for. You can control the motor current directly, using throttle or a pedal torque sensor.

If you look around I think you will find one or two maybe that might build you a Lebowski controller. Iirc there have been some posts about that somewhere here. Don't know what kind of power you are aiming for, and I don't know what is possible with the lebowski controller but it seems people are raging about it so my guess is it will scale up well to fit your need if you got someone to build it.

On a side note I've heard good things about controllers from http://accelerated-systems.com. They got ebikes controllers all the way up to powerful motorcycle controllers, with a new powerful mc controller being released Q1 2018.

I think the accelerated system is the guys behind the controllers from ebikes.ca, iirc they are even involved in the phaserunner controller from ebikes.ca. So I am sure they know their stuff.

If you are power hungry take a look at their e-motorcycle line. Notice that the rated power is continuous power. Meaning peak power will be radically higher, see the spec sheets. Notice the peak A. That is a good indicator that these controllers will not hold back when you twist the throttle.
