Re: Accelerated Systems ASI BAC 4000 & BAC 8000 FOC BT Controllers

Hello Wonderful people, First off, thank you for the help that I have received on this forum. Here is my question. Is there a thread to discuss BAC 4000 and 8000 configuration which is active and appropriate to discuss setting up and tuning? I am having trouble finding the right place to post questi...

Re: BLDC Phase Line Meter, a question of how to?

The one closes to R40 is 5102. The one above is 4991 Then those are 51 kΩ and 4.99 kΩ, respectively. That means that neither one of those is in series with that wire to the phases. The diode isn't either, or else you wouldn't get the same resistance both directions. So the part that is in series wi...

Re: BLDC Phase Line Meter, a question of how to?

The little black things near it are resistors. What are the numbers printed on them? I can get those numbers. The one closes to R40 is 5102. The one above is 4991 The data sheets on the 1n4148 and Zener seem similar, they restrict voltage direction, if I'm reading this right? But I'm not able to fu...

Re: BLDC Phase Line Meter, a question of how to?

I would have to guess that the resistor in question will probably be marked as "101" if it's a little black rectangle surface mount. If it's a tubular type with wires down to the board, it probably has stripes with brown black brown and probably gold. These would be 100ohm resistors. It i...

Re: BLDC Phase Line Meter, a question of how to?

Mesure that 28 to blue with the red and black meter wires swapped. If the reading is different, it's probably thru a diode. (especially if 28 to y or g is still 37). With wire reversed the very same readings. Pin 28 to Green phase wire is 37.43 ohm Pin 28 to Yellow phase wire is 37.41 ohm Pin 28 to...

Re: BLDC Phase Line Meter, a question of how to?

The first point I would measure is from either pad 28 to each of the phase wires, one at a time. If you get essentially zero ohms to one of htem, then that's what it is. :) It's possible it could also go thru a diode, which would be easy to implement on your new system. Pin 28 to Green phase wire i...

Re: BLDC Phase Line Meter, a question of how to?

Are you looking for battery current, or phase current? If the former, any wattmeter including the Cycle Analyst will show you that. The CA can also show you speed, if connected to a sensor measuring wheel speed or a hall sensor in a hubmotor. (dont' recommend the latter due to potential for damage ...

BLDC Phase Line Meter, a question of how to?

I recently swapped out my controller from a simple ebike controller to an ASI Bac4000. The controller is great and really smooth. But by swapping I lost some features from my old controller, the speedo and a Phase line Meter? This feature showed realtime current when throttling and realtime regen wh...

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

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...

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 ...
