Re: ASI Acclerated Systems controllers BAC2000 review

Update: Got the controller back from ASI , with a new USB cable which apparently was working for Martin at ASI but guess what ? It still doesn't work on my PC ! Maybe it's me or my PC ? I've officially given up on this controller now , Martin was very helpful but couldn't solve the problem. I've now...

Re: ASI Acclerated Systems controllers BAC2000 review

Hi Martin , Thanks for looking at the controller and confirming it's working . I'm surprised the cable I sent with it is faulty because it's brand new from reputable large company that import from ftdi themselves (not eBay ) it's the fourth cable I tried , all of then brand new , first two from eBay...

Re: Santa..Help! Sabvoton controller/Throttle not working :(

This is one possible connection for the throttle, I think this controller has two throttle connections , one for the variable regen other for the normal throttle. Edit * this is the 2nd throttle output for variable regen

Re: Santa..Help! Sabvoton controller/Throttle not working :(

I'm having the same problems,

First problem was the motor over temperature, which was sorted by shorting ( I also used a resistor in series just in case). the white wire to ground on the hall plug .

Re: Sabvoton SVMC072150 controller review, variable regen *P

Finally my sabvoton has arrived , but I'm getting a motor over temperature system error in the software There doesn't seem to be anywhere in the software to disable this , so it won't let me run the hall auto map . There is a white temp wire in the hall plug , how is this wired , can I bypass this ?

Re: Andrew's NYX carbon frame + cromotor. full fat build log

Awesome build ! Wish I still lived in S.Wales got some of the best trails around !
I like what you did with the thermomplastic to protect the controller from mud and spray , do you have a link for where I can buy the stuff?

Thanks
