Re: new cyclone 3000 w mid-drive kit?

Since Vasilisk has stated there is no need for CAv3 I assume Nucular can be set to limit based on temps getting high? In short - yes. From nucular wiki : Section Controller - Motor setup - Motor t°-sensor You can select a temperature range in which a smooth power limit will occur (parameter Delta °...

And, I can’t remember, does the Muxxus 3k fit in 135mm ?
With 7-spd freewheel it needed a bit stretching (and I cant use smallest cog - chain will hit the arm). With 1-speed, should be no problem.

Nucular 12F
Not plug-and-play; you still have to re-solder connectors. But it works very well and has enough power to cook the motor.
Thermo Nucular 24F
Same as above except instead of cooking you'll either melt or explode it (unless you can resist the temptation to crank up phase/bat amps).

So it's just looping the ignition switch wire through the halls connector in case the connector comes lose as an extra precaution, right?

Re: Cyclone motor weird wiring

The red wire from battery+ goes through "ignition switch" and motor halls connector (JST) to controller's "ignition" pin. Controller feeds it's cpu through the ignition pin. Ignition switch should be understandable. As for the loop through halls connector - it's there to power of...

Re: Help! Cyclone 1680 Gearbox Fail

I have no idea, how long it will last with 50A. I'll bet Cyclone doesn't either. It all depends how you use it.
But it will prolong it's lifetime for sure.

Re: Help! Cyclone 1680 Gearbox Fail

Well, theoretically, everything is fixable but it will cost you at least 10x more. http://cyclone-tw.com/motor.html Here it lists planetary gearbox for $99 (6th item from the top). I would contact them beforehand, to make sure it will fit your motor. Make sure to ask, whether it includes planetary g...

Re: Help! Cyclone 1680 Gearbox Fail

No fix for that one.
Problem is too much current from your controller (== too high torque from motor). Either reduce the current or get a more powerful motor/gearbox.

That was me before I got my nucular.
PV works only on trap. mode. IMHO too pricey to get it only because of nice display and some adjustability.

Has anyone done DIY motor potting? I have, on cyclone 3k motor. Thermal polyurethane from farnell. Used up one 250ml 2-part bag for it. Mixed and poured in two parts - each motor end in different casting. In retrospect should have done in 3 parts - less messy. 1st casting, made a thin cardboard (an...

Re: I designed a +200A powerstage with 200V MOSFETs

Try flat heatpipes between mosfets and heatsink. I've used those in couple of custom high power LED lights, the heat transfer is amazing.
Mounting will be more difficult - basically; either clamping + thermal grease or just thermal epoxy.

Re: new cyclone 3000 w mid-drive kit?

So I didn't take any pictures but I did figure out what was happening. I took the motor off and took the non drive side cover off and the rotor had somehow slid alone the axle and toward the non drive side cover and so was rubbing on the ends of the windings and the hall sensor mount. It means that...

Re: cyclone running

I guess it was a sinewave controller, which are sensitive to c3k motor "ghost hall signal" issue, discussed already a while back.
Either generic trap controller or nucular (which filters out those false signals) runs fine.
