Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

No answer using search. Is there a recommended lube interval for the TDSZ2 with nylon gear? I have over 2k miles on mine. Have never had cover off.

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

bergerandfries, My Luna charger has settings of 80%, 90%, and 100%. At the 80% setting I'm lucky that I get 55.4 volts. If I use 90 or 100 bergerandfries, I'm lucky that my Luna charger set and 80% shuts off at 55.4 volts. If I use 90 or 100% settings I have to discharge the battery, using a load (I...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

My 48V TDSZ2 (2 years old) starts at 55.4 volts. May not if above that. I have a 52V battery and charge it to 80% to get 55.4V at the battery. Bad: I don't get to use the 55.4 to 58.4 capability of the battery. Good: it forces me to operate in the 50% to 80% of the battery capability. Battery will p...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

My NuVinci can easily be shifted when power is off on my TSDZ2- 15A/500W. Power on even in Eco mode I have to ease up on the pedals to shift it. With my 52V battery charged to 55 volts, Turbo mode, and my max input on a 10% hill my power meter read a high of 14.5 amps and 760 Watts. It's a $15 power...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Mine had that problem. Turned out that the controller in my 48V system had a high voltage limit that kept it from using my fully charged 52V battery (58 volts ) . Discharging to 55.5 volts enabled the motor to work. That luckily happens to be the charge I get from the 80% setting on my Luna Cycle ch...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Not all zip ties are created equal. My battery is hung from the top of the seat frame using very heavy nylon zip ties and no problems in 8 months of use. Stainless steel zip ties are also available. May install a couple of those as I have had zip ties fail after a couple of years exposure to UV.

On the next page it will be the second entry. You have to click on date. Not completely logical, but that's the way the site works.

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

erian, Why would you put an electric assist on a racing bike? A TDSZ2 system with a large battery could nearly double the weight. The bike would NEVER have racing bike characteristics again. In my view a hybrid type bike, with suspension, would be a better choice. The assist will compensate for the ...

Waynemarlow postulated: "Perhaps the unit checks to see if there's a sensor inline on power up, if not it ignores it," If this is true then this would also bypass any controller checks to limit the speed of the trike. My 500W 15A TSDZ2 easily gets me to 20mph at level 3 boost but I'm also ...

Interested in the power cut off when the wheel magnet is out of position. I don't have a sensor cable at all and my TSDZ2 works fine and never have had a power cut out. Is there some other signal, other than speed, that is talking to the controller when you have a sensor cable present? I bought a ca...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor" 52V Battery

The 52V battery is a poor choice for the 15A version of the TDSZ2. Assuming the max charge for each cell to be 4.2V and the performance cliff voltage to be 3.35 a 13 cell 48V battery will have a fully charged voltage of 56.6. Full charge on my 52V battery is 58.8, BUT my 15A TDSZ2 will not start unt...

Re: Running the latest 48v 500W TSDZ2 engine on 52volts ?

Bought a Luna 52v Panasonic battery for my 48v TDSZ2, charged to 100% and wouldn't work. Hooked to my George Forman grill and discharged to 54.0 v . Several hours later went to ride and my power analyzer read 55.73; apparently regained after load removed. Tried the motor with little hope and it work...
