Re: The Downspout E-bike Battery Case

Thanks!

I was able to fit 4 - Turnigy 6s 5.8 ah packs, 3 in the long down spout and 1 pack piggy backing on the main pack.
I had 4 latches 2 per side which allowed me to take the pack off pretty quick in the event something started smoking.

Sorry for hijacking the tread :)

Re: The Downspout E-bike Battery Case

Looks pretty slick, I have been running the same style downspout along the bottom of the frame (from head set to bottom bracket), it has held up quite well (not huge km's like some on here but 3000 km is a good shake down test). I have mine strapped to an aluminum bracket with all-around in a few sp...

Re: JZ36V Nine Continent - Pole Pairs and Model

Well I got some spare time and pulled the motor apart - 46 magnets - so 23 poles.
On 36.5 volts with the wheel off the ground I was getting around 48 km/h.
I ran a few different 9c motors listed on the Grin motor simulator and found the 2805 seems to line up the best.

JZ36V Nine Continent - Pole Pairs and Model

Hi Everyone, I have pulled out an old hub motor from storage and was wondering if someone could confirm the model and pole pairs. It's a front hub motor with JZ36V-500W091218082, from what I could find it is likely 23 pole pairs, but not sure what model it is to determine the RPM/V 9c Hub Motor.JPG ...

Re: Replaced Lyen with Grin controller now runs backwards

If the wheel runs smoothly with around 2 amps draw with the wheel off the ground, then look at the controller manual, most have a jumper in the wiring harness to change the wheel direction, if it is the phase runner / base runner then you can use the software suite to change direction.

Re: 5-16S Smart Tiny BMS preorder - 30/150/750A rated

Anyone know if the BMS requires a special type of Bluetooth module (aka from Energus 25.00 € +tax +vat probably $50CAD by the time its at my door) or would a HC-05 Bluetooth module ( $6 CAD) work for communication?
HC-05 is 4 wire 5V, GRND, TX, RX.

Thanks,

Jeremy

Since the Tiny BMS communications are so well documented, I've put together a read-only monitor for the Tiny BMS that I use during charging. You'll need a python 3 install with the Bokeh and PyModbus libraries. https://github.com/dsoto/Tiny-BMS-Monitor BMS-app-screenshot.png Anyone put together a c...

Re: 150 A Wattmeter and power analyzer value question

Here are my guesses :)

The value 31.53 Vm...what is this?
Voltage Minimum, what the voltage drops to when you are at max amps (20 amps)?
The value 00:11Te...no idea
Time since powered up?
21.06 Ap...no idea
Max Amps?
and 21.0 WH I guess its Watt Hours
Correct

Re: Rewiring a Crystalyte HS3540

it is always good to use the gear puller hooks on the stator instead of just the side plate as it could crack. You can't use the gear puller hooks on teh stator, because the center of the gear puller has to push on teh axle which is part of the stator. You have to use them on the cover edges to pul...

Gear puller is pretty slick and glad I bought one from the get go. I think I paid $20. Makes it really easy to push out the shaft from side plate, remove the stator (bolted to dropout) from the rotor (attached to spokes) AND most importantly reinstall the stator into the rotor!

I learned a neat fact about them when I was travelling recently.
I guess they are in the larval stage living in swamps for years before flying, so the one you saved could have been 4 years old.
