HI
You can download the software here http://www.heinzmann.com/en/electric-an ... ontrollers

I've never seen used canbus units, I had to buy a new one, and the DVT software will only work with the USB version.

Regards

Charles

Hi there
The software is on the second page, along with various firmware versions.

You will need to login with
Username : software
Password : perm-motor2010

There is plenty of documentation as well.

Regards
Charles

I highly recommend just calling up Sevcon. Their tech support is great, and they not only just emailed me the DVT software, but they emailed me all kinds of new documentation, new firmware for my Gen4 Size 4, and a configuration file made specifically for my motor! Just call them up, you already bought their $900.00 controller, they now just want to keep you a happy customer.

@DGonz:

Hi,

which support do you mean? UK? Where did you call? I made some other experience some time ago.

Regards, Sebastian

That password looks like it works for other downloads but not the "SEVCON Install" file.

updating the thread, since people can't figure it out after things moved on the Heinzmann site

Go here:
http://www.heinzmann.com/en/download-el ... s-software
Then navigate the tree to "Motor Controllers", then "Software" then "Sevcon Software" and click on "Sevcon Install".

Hello all,

I tried to follow the instructions in this thread and successfully have the computer talking with my Gen4 powertrain on the bench. I'm seeing CANopen packets in the packet monitor. However the download there requires activation, and Sevcon seems to be roundly ignoring my activation requests. Rather, they respond and ask who I am, I respond and tell them, and they don't even have the courtesy to respond with a 'no', they just don't reply. I'm not asking for any support from them. I've done standalone engine management before, and industrial controls programming before, so though I expect troubles I will muddle through them. Has anyone had recent luck getting a license file from them? If so, how did you do it? Thank you.

That's pretty much how Sevcon is with DIY guys.

Gotta buy the software through one of their distributors to get that key.

Yep, they explained that they do not want to distribute software in violation of their agreements with OEMs. Now to see if I can get a key without also buying another IXXAT.

They keys bop around... I have had access at different points.
Out of respect for those who have shared... I do not even abuse the privilege myself. (I.E. I have nothing pirated)
As of present... I have only one legit copy of DVT running (on an old laptop) and it is a limited key set that causes me all kinds of bricked controller issues.

We are seriously looking at other options as Sevcon has a bad reputation for direct non-OEM customer support.
But then... we are OEM... so I suppose its time to approach them directly myself for a better level of support.

Would rather just work on a work-around... as I am a firm believer in just putting the tools out where people can use them.
If you have any experience what so ever with DVT you will have patches of hair missing from your scalp. It is about as buggy as you can possibly imagine for an OEM Prime Time offering.

Yes... you can get DVT to do what you need.
Yes... for every 3 steps forward you will take at least 1 back chasing your ass.
