Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

This was one of the more interesting discoveries concerning moisture migration on a humid day, where rust would develop inside a hubmotor. As the motor cooled down, humid air would be drawn in through the cable bundle of motor phase wires and hall sensor wires. As the motor cooled even more overnig...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Yes, the seals on them from the factory are just dust seals and the waterproofing of the whole engine relies on the small seal in the outer chain ring holder and the O ring on the bearing face itself. Once the bearing wears, the axle will move up and down a bit wearing that outer seal out pretty qui...

Re: Tsdz2 firmware open source adapted to vlcd5, vlcd6 and xh18

I have found I think a repeatable problem, I have had on occasion a motor not responding once programmed to the torque sensor. Program the motor and all other functions will work except reading the torque sensor. If you revert back to the factory memory and program files it still will not work. One ...

Re: Tsdz2 firmware open source adapted to vlcd5, vlcd6 and xh18

There was some talk back some ways that if the lights draw to much current it will also disable the motor, try disconnecting any unneeded wiring back to bare basic and disable the light setting on start up .

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Sadly there's not much you can do to limit water and dust ingress in severe operational conditions other than what the factory already does, simply the motor was not designed for deep water nor deep muddy conditions, but then nor were the early Bosch, Brose, Shimano engines and one doesn't have to l...

Re: Tsdz2 firmware open source adapted to vlcd5, vlcd6 and xh18

On the OSF V20 you can disconnect the speed sensor all together, try and run the motor without it and see if the engine performs the same.

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Price wise its an awesome bit of engineering. Both units I've seen damaged were very old units and the design of the free floating sensor is different and less substantial than the latter ones. Both units also were regularly used in muddy and wet conditions and had water ingress stains and both were...

Re: TSDZ2 mid drive with 860C, 850C or SW102 displays only -- Flexible OpenSource firmware (Casainho code only)

Hugh there has to be another cause for your problems, we now have 6 TSDZ2's mounted on Mtbs, riding in hilly and hard terrain, without any form of restraints and without a...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Although it may seem that way, alas its not quite so, often I find that it feels like the motor is not putting in much power until with the OSF software you can display the motor power in Watts, very often with what feels like minimum motor input on long climbs you have already reached the max moto...

Re: Shipping Dengfu E10 frame to England

Shipping DHL is $ 350 and by rail $ 180 so maybe not so expensive compared to the States. Unfortunately we're used to getting parts shipped from China for very low rates on a lot of the components we order and this just seems higher than usual.

Re: Fully wireless ANT+ BLE TSDZ2 mid drive motor (like Specialized Turbo Levo) -- Flexible OpenSource firmware

Look forward to being able to use the TSDZ2 in this manner, sorry I'm not able to code like you guys, but its going to be pretty cool if you can get the Garmin to work with the motor in the way planned.

Thanks for your time.

Shipping Dengfu E10 frame to England

Guys been getting a quote on having a Dengfu E10 frame shipped across from China to England and the shipping costs are pretty high, enough to possibly kill off the idea sadly. Has anybody found a reasonable cost method to get frames China to UK ? Alternatively if say 3 or 4 of us order at the same t...

Re: Tsdz2 firmware open source adapted to vlcd5, vlcd6 and xh18

Bafang M600 would be ideal but would require a bit of bike surgery.

Pretty impressed that the TSDZ2 even with a 52T front gear can still pull all that kit + girlfriend for 4 years. That motor should go in the hall of fame for abused TSDZ2 engines :)
