Re: foundingpower programmable bms

I have the very small display which doesn't have any switches to turn it on. Could you try connecting it all up how it should be and with a multimeter, check the input and output voltages of the two regulators N10 and N3 ? They should be 5 volts and 3.3 volts respectively. If there is no input volt...

Re: foundingpower programmable bms

Ok, i did some testing. The bms doesn't work in the 12 s Configuration. The Power switch was soldered to the wrong pins. I hooked up a Power supply to the Ground and to the last Pin of the second Battery connector. Then I was able to connect through RS232. However the D52 gets very hot if I do this....

Re: foundingpower programmable bms

So, when you connect your cells, nothing happens (do you have display?), regardless of the on/off switch? Yes, I tried everything. Does anyone know what chip N4 is ? N4 has died on my BMS and I haven't received a reply from Eason regarding this chip. Did your BMS ever work? Can you post some photos...

Re: foundingpower programmable bms

Don't know your model, but I guess that: - connecting battety cells should be enough - there could be some power pin to enable Bms (I.e. Lock In for smartBMS). - Software you have may not be compatible. There are few different protocols. Do you have any documentation? Hi Mucek, thanks for the reply...

Re: foundingpower programmable bms Problem

Hi Folks, I have bought a LY.FS12Y.BMS quite a while ago. It's probably one of the first versions. This week I decided to give it a go. I followed the instructions to connect a 12s battery to test. First thing I noticed the small LCD didn't show anything, there is no switch for the LCD back light. S...

Re: Why I don’t buy a Bosch midrive E-Bike.

It's not very wise to drive a DIY 2000W system in a German city. Sooner or later police will get you and they are not stupid. You can put a 250W sticker on it or a CA with a "hidden" switch, but this will not do you any good. .... there you go :D You need a Bosch battery for a Bosch drive, but you ...

Re: Why I don’t buy a Bosch midrive E-Bike.

Funny thing, yesterday a friend of mine who bought a nice Bosch driven Bike four months ago told me that his Battery pack gave up all ready. And it's exactly how I thought I would be. He had to bring it back to the shop for sending it back to Bosch Service. He now got to wait two weeks until he can ...

Re: Why I don’t buy a Bosch midrive E-Bike.

All German Pededlec forums are full of "uh it's against the law" waffle. That's why prefer ES. My Ping LiFePO4 batteries are still fully working after a several Years as well as my Crystalyte in every day use. My Point is that these proprietary E-Bikes are designed to last no longer than 2 Years and...

Re: Vector. New 5.4 kW ebike from scratch.

Great Motorbike. It's the same concept than the Stealth bomber, except it doesn't have a proper gear ratio, so that you could pedal along at high speeds. Personally I would make the frame less bulky so that it looks more like a regular E-Bike. With this Machine you get pulled by the cops in no time.

Re: Why I don’t buy a Bosch midrive E-Bike.

It seems that you are well educated of why to avoid this German trap, but you forgot to mention the price of a battery as new = 600 EUR Yes it's like buying Ink for your Printer which is more expensive than a new one. The whole Bosch system, you can't buy regularly, costs more than 1800 EUR. here I...

Why I don’t buy a Bosch midrive E-Bike.

I really thought about buying a Bosch driven Cube Stereo Hybrid 140 HPA fully as a spare Bike. Seems like a reasonable package to a relatively good Price around $3200 in my country. The Bosch drive units are definitely a well tuned piece of German engineering. The motor can claim steep hills utilizi...

StoreDot. A new promissing nano based approach.

this sounds almost to good to be true. If so, these new batteries could also be used as super caps.

Re: mon-goose to MON-STER 6KW

I have to admit, 70km/hr is freewheeling down a hill. But with the gearing the internally geared schlumpf bottom bracket affords me I CAN actually contribute quite meaningfully at 60km/hr. They're a fantastic bit of kit and worth the extra $400 odd on a serious ebike. Hey if you're spending 2k on t...

Re: mon-goose to MON-STER 6KW

Actually to ride my bike you'd never even know, it's totally smooth even at 70km/hr.
my favourite question. how do you keep up with pedaling at 70 km/h and that gear ratio. Or have you built a motor cycle?

Re: Fully Touring E-Bike Build done!

sorry for the late reply At what speed? ~56 kmh now using a 5304 for more torque Would you recommend the 5303, over say a 500W geared MAC at 48V? never tried a geared motor but I don't think they're very durable. and they make a lot of noise. the new clytes are less heavy anyway Is the drag on the 5...

Re: Fully Touring E-Bike Build done!

This is the first time I'm seeing this frame and I'm amazed. How come no company has one like this in the US. I don't know, maybe because it's expensive. the bike gets quite tail heavy if you use lots of batteries and rear hub. in the other hand these Panniers are the perfect camouflage, if you kno...

Re: Fully Touring E-Bike Build done!

Meanwhile hitting 6000 km mark with this bike and still everything cool. Except that i was hit by a car recently, even though it was not my fault, it has scared the crap out of me. Luckily I got a way with some road burn and a broken front wheel.
