Re: C63 circuit breakers rattling when new?

I have received a response, they claim that it is normal and:
However, they can withstand in operating conditions mechanical sinusoidal vibrations at level 2g ±7.5mm (3 axis from 5 to 150Hz) as per IEC 60068-2-6 Std test conditions.

Did you purchase from a certified supplier or off of ebay?
Ebay for the Schneider (rebranded as Clipsal) and a major retail supplier for the DETA models. The ebay seller is supposed to be a reputable business though: https://www.sparkydirect.com.au

Re: Geared Hub Motor Quality

How badly do these things get beat up when used off road? i'm not talking about grinding up 5 to 10 minute inclines, Here it's generally pretty flat and the most climbing you'll do may be for a minute. Do the gears get pretty thrashed when you break and regain traction? The clutches fail eventually...

C63 circuit breakers rattling when new?

Hey,
I've tried purchasing two different brands of c63 circuit breakers (DETA and Schneider) and they both have some sort of rattle internally. (and yes, it is not the screw-tabs for the wires)

Is this normal or anything to be concerned about?

Re: Cycle Analyst V3 preview and first beta release

It seems you have two issues that you can address to held remedy the problem: [*]Moisture: Moisture can certainly cause signals to scoot around the PCB and make the firmware see inputs that were never intended.

Hmmm... The watchdog screen can indicate a number of issues; the 'A,B, and C' values displayed on the Watchdog screen can help identify the cause. Perhaps you could post up or PM me with some additional info: Did you note the A,B, C watchdog values? What firmware version are you running? Can you up...

Saw some "watchdog" codes on the screen while charging, what does this mean?

edit - I had also ridden in the rain the night before, so maybe a wiring issue?

Re: Advanced ADAPTTO controllers and compatible products

Are there any official or other plug-and-play throttle, brake and e-brake controls for the Adaptto? Something that doesn't require crimping or soldering. Excellent question! I was interested in high quality throttles to be used with the Adaptto (without messing about, e.g. with the Magura throttle)?

Re: Cycle Analyst V3 preview and first beta release

The rubber button strip on my CAv3 came off during a ride the other day, not sure why as I never noticed that they were loose. What are my options to get a replacement?

I emailed info@ebikes.ca a few days ago but did not get a reply.

There's no such thing as "overpowered". :twisted: 1. I can't believe you guys haven't gotten that law changed yet. Why let pedalists, who are generally quite prejudiced against ebikes, make your rules? To get lawmakers on my side I would approach from the standpoint of that it's oppositio...

Serious question, can anyone recommend reliable sellers who can assemble packs with the new 3.5 Ah cells (in the Asia-pacific region)?

Interesting. I guess that would probably do it. The question is, what do those of us who don't have the means to machine our own adapters do?

Hi all, I'm having trouble trying to mount Magura MT5 rear calipers to a 203mm rotor mounted to the 'fatbike' (wider axle) version of the MXUS v2 motor.

Re: 3500-mAh NCA cell, Samsung, LG, Sanyo, Panasonic

What kind of current would people recommend for these 3.5AH cells for ebike applications, given it is probably not a great idea to run them at 10A?

I'm guessing these packs will be rather large/expensive for something like 80A. 15p?

Re: Aussie 200 Watt Limit Thread

Going back to the ebike topic, I've been pulled over a few times recently.

No action, but some cops in my area are starting to take an interest it seems.

Also, they seem to notice more at night, but maybe they notice me because my front light is super bright? 7x Cree LEDs, probably about 2000 LM.
