Re: The Little Motor that Could…

Skeetab5780,

7 kw bursts? That’s low.

Be sure to get a big enough controller for 7kw++.

Mine may have did 136.6 amp x 80 v = 10,936 watts.

10,000 watts seen on the nearby horizon

The Votol EM 150 controller that first powered the QS3000 edirtbike, then next moved to the QS2000 edirtbike, is now on the QS1000 edirtbike. The controller has never been programmed by the rs232/pc method by me as it worked quite well on both the QS 3000 & 2000 motors. Since the QS1000 motor/EM...

Re: The Little Motor that Could…

larsb,

I will be monitoring with a CA. I did try a 200 amp shunt but the analog RO needle bounced around too much for pinpointing an accurate amp reading.

Re: The Little Motor that Could…

Hi larsb, Thanks for informing me about how one may override the declared maximum current of this series of Votol EM controllers. I still have the 4 wire USB cable and have found a friend with a PC & USB port, so I may try changing the max current on the EM100. For now I will install on this bik...

Re: Question about 12v li-ion 3s battery for RV.

I had a few hundred 18650 cells and wanted a useful way to employ them in an RV. The Magnum Dimension CSW 20-24 inverter can use either 12v or 24v as input. The upper voltage limit for when the inverter is set at 24v is 30 v. So I made 7s packs. 7 x 4.2 = 29.4 volts < 30v and the inverted works fine...

The Little Motor that Could…

Having built 3 edirtbikes with 3 different motors — the Cyclone 6k, the QS2000, and the QS3000 — I was left wondering about what the QS1000 motor could do? The wattage this series of QS motors can handle is about 10x the model number or 10,000 watts for the QS1000. The very lightweight QS1000 motore...

There are two regions of electrical conduction impeding processes/sites that happen in, on and around electrical contacts. 1.

Electrical wires in operating ebikes corrode, but not all claims of satisfactory conducting agents lead to what will work well for the low and high DC voltage contacts of these machines.

Re: Sur Ron 2023 upgrades KO combo or Ebmx controller w/stock motor?

The Sur Ron was considered a motorcycle not an ebike by the site administrators. It’s site location was then moved out of non-hub motored ebikes to electric motorcycles.
