Re: Adaptto Mini-E/Max-E Owner's Thread

BCTECH - Sounds like the fets on the green phase are knackered. when I was pushing the bike home, the regen brake seems still engaged the whole time This is also very indicative of the controller fets on at least one phase blown. Controller is definately in need of repair. Also, to have made the con...

Re: Adaptto Mini-E/Max-E Owner's Thread

Since getting darker I changed the contrast to suit, and remembered about this options availablility. There is a youtube in russian with the prototype Adaptto. Just wondering if anyones actually used it, and if you can have it active with the twin pigtailed switch off but battery still connected. Do...

Re: Adaptto Mini-E/Max-E Owner's Thread

Hello again gents, Is anyone using the 'Screen Heater' option? From what I gather it comes on automaticatally at sub 10degC, only with the controller turned on? Temps are starting to drop here and a few quirks are popping up. Last year I didn't have issues and could store the bike inside at work ove...

Re: Motor inductance variations

Hi madin88,

Yeah, the measurements have been taken with the rotor removed, only way to lacquer the rotor, check hall leg insulation wear/breaks and for cable chaffing from axle to outrunner :).

Cheers though keep it coming :)

Re: Motor inductance variations

At the time the FET blew, 30A battery and 55A phase in the settings. Although what the controller actually puts out has always over run quite badly so probably 35-39A battery, indicated.

Literally went at 3/4 WOT from a standstill.

Re: Adaptto Mini-E/Max-E Owner's Thread

Both Mini-E's start power limiting at 55C and decreases power as temp increases, to the point of only being able to travel at 13kph... Never hit 62+C that was Mini-E's inside vector frame with cromotor not quite perfectly calibrated correctly, this was before the heatsink panel mod and tuning the mo...

Re: Motor inductance variations

Thanks for your info flippy, cycborg :), The motor is currently apart to apply the Scotch 1603 so all measurements are through uncoiled 1.2m cables without any induced magnetic inductance from the outrunner :). Did think such a small variation wouldn't make a difference, but wondered how much of a d...

Motor inductance variations

Hello again all, After my Adaptto randomly blew a FET I've been chasing down the cause. There are no cuts in insulation, no cuts, internal breaks or shorts to earth from phase/hall/temp etc... I suspect it was moisture/condensation in the motor, which has now been completely coated in Scotch 1603 us...

Minimize controller brake down - Fuses inline with phase?

Morning all :). After my Adaptto stopped functioning for the second time, I believe it's time to try to tackle an issue that could prevent controllers braking the world over :). To avoid immediate confusion this is not about battery->controller it's controller<->motor :). First, why aren't we all pu...

Hi RageNR :) Not sure if I'm deciphering your post completely, but I think your going on about the losses under load at equiv wattage with a 48v 30Ah vs 72v 20Ah battery pack both produce 1440W, however do a quick play on Justins ebike sim will show the low voltage sags more.

Re: Adaptto Mini-E/Max-E Owner's Thread

brum - Best bet is to bottom balance your cells. Set your max charge to 4.1v or whatever you norm charge to and do a low amp charge (half your std C rated charge) for around 5-6 hrs. This should allow tthe cells to very slowly become balanced to 4.1v. It may take longer than 5-6 hrs the first time, ...

Re: Crystalyte H4080 problem

Hi NHM :) Just from the top pic it looks like you could do with some heatshrink to cover that split in the cable. I'd do a phase to phase resistance check and make sure there are no shorts between the the hub and the windings, however I'd suspect a bank of FET's have gone on your controller. Open up...

Re: Adaptto Mini-E/Max-E Owner's Thread

BCTECH - First just to settle your mind and clear an obvious fault (human :) ), put the controller in 'SLESS'. If your still getting 'Halls!' it's likely dodgey Brake/Throttle/PAS wiring/soldering/issue. Then do the H1-H2-....H6 check of the halls in the diag page, the one that you have an image pos...

Re: XLR charging configuration guide

I use these on both vector frames. Good for 30A charging, even with the Adaptto coil tucked underneath it mounted internally (v warm) :). They've both seen the UK winter and survived in all weather conditions. Fine line with soldering between a good pot and melting the pin mounts :).

Re: Adaptto Mini-E/Max-E Owner's Thread

Brum - My best guess is something to do with the halls and phase sequencing, as in you can replicate the wheel rotaating to crazy 120kph+ speeds by having the hall angle set 'incorrectly' and going WOT. It seems at best guess to feel like a strong pull to 90kph then it's like it completely skips a p...

Re: Limiting Amps to Controller

Just from a 15ah headway cell user. Having 17S2P of them at 65amps, they really don't 'appear' to have any issues, voltage sag is negligable in warmer weather (10+C). Biggest issue is the sheer size, weight and space required. If you run a true 15S without the transformer you'd be fine with LiFeP04 ...
