Re: Cycle Analyst V3 preview and first beta release

We are getting a W flag on the diagnostic screen which to me makes no sense. In your setup, you are running in a torque assist PAS mode, which means while you are pedaling whether hard or lightly, the CA is ALWAYS trying to maintain a regulated constant wattage output, hence the W flag should alway...

Re: Cycle Analyst V3 preview and first beta release

Hello fellow CA users, I was hoping someone would look at my CA PAS profile (the hex file which is amended with a txt extension to make it uploadable). We are getting a W flag on the diagnostic screen which to me makes no sense. I do have watt limiting set to 600 watts and it doesn't seem like Im pu...

Re: Cycle Analyst V3 preview and first beta release

Hi there Just a guess but if your getting the S flag that should meant that your speed limiting is in play. Check your set speed settings and adjust accordingly. Yes your right the capital S indicates speed limiting but why? I have no speed limiting set on the profile so its strange to see that fla...

Hello and thank you for the past responses! Today I'm Having trouble with my PAS set up.

Re: Cycle Analyst V3 preview and first beta release

Thank you for taking a look, that all make sense to me. The amp limit is really the issue. I'll be switching to the Phaserunner today and that will allow me to go above the 20 amps of the controller I'm using for the test. I'm concerned that the LiGo battery wont be able to handle the amp draw even ...

Re: Cycle Analyst V3 preview and first beta release

Those arrows flipping directly reflect the input cadence signal. No flipping should mean no RPM display. MG310 + Grin 20 amp controller + 36 volt Ligo (single brick)+ simple right side mounted cadence sensor Ok So I have a PAS system up and running with the CA. I'm using a simple cadence sensor (6 ...

Re: Cycle Analyst V3 preview and first beta release

You need a PAS sensor to do PAS --- but something is not right. The RPM display shows pedal cadence (not motor RPM) and since you have no PAS device attached to the RPM input, there should be no RPM reading. Doe the RPM arrow on the "SETUP PAS DEVICE" prefix screen flip up and down? Have you attach...

Re: Cycle Analyst V3 preview and first beta release

Thank you for the update. The 3.12 firmware is much more stable on my computer and seemed like it is much better at sending and receiving data from the CA. As far as PAS setup to use the Basic(Pwr), I still need a cadence sensing wheel (perhaps just the BB style sensor) or is there a way to do some ...

Re: Cycle Analyst V3 preview and first beta release

I'm very interested configuring an AutoTorquePAS (mentioned in the PDF manual)but the setup seems to have changed upon flashing to 3.12 I don't see that selection anymore. So the question is is there another way to do AutoTorquePAS in v3.12. Additionally is there another walk through the setup for P...

Overvolting a 24v hub motor to 36v

I've been running my 24 volt hub motor at 36 volts by using a 36v controller. My question is what exactly is the damage I'm doing by running it at the higher voltage. In my short tests I check for heat at the hub but so far it seems to run without over heating. Thank you for any comments about your ...

Re: Best setup with around $1200

Make sure you get a bike you like. Most people I talk to who bike prefer their bike to the idea of a new bike. I suppose the difference Is between a complete ebike vs a build. Complete ebikes seem expensive. Around 1200 you can get a good set up for front hub conversion plus a new bike. It's the sim...
