Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Oh there are a lot of reasons for the formed opinions, but lets stick with just one. This forum thread is for this motor. A thread was created specifically for the modified firmware, yet no one is using it. Many people have complained and then quit this forum thread and maybe even the entire forum. ...

Thank you for the review of the firmware mod. It is nice to see the bike is not launching with pressure on the pedals. Perhaps eventually we may try it too after it is tested a bit. I am just now seeing how the original firmware works with the 15s battery.

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Well we took another ride today, I guess we started out about 61.5v with the 15s battery. It is working perfectly. I have noticed a decent increase in both speed and power over the 14s battery. This may be due to several factors though, since the 15s battery has a 2p configuration (cells rated at 20...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

I used the speed sensor extension cable. I have about 2 feet of wire between the plug and the stlink. Maybe that is why mine is so flaky!

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Mmm my program cable doesn't work. I get an error in ST visual programmer that it can communicate. I installed my kt-lcd3 and connected it to the 8 pin connector of the motor. Then I connected my program cable to speedsensor cable of the motor. The cable is connected as below: program_cable_wiring2...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Just removed all the limitations from the open-source firmware and I got 120 max cadence at 10s and 128 max at 14s so yes it's possible you can get to 130 with 15s ;) In both cases tge motor was at max duty cycle and it makes sense that this increases with voltage Variables changed Erps overspeed i...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Would be good if you could validate the cadence. At 112 my legs were spinning pretty fast. Can't imagine 130. Yeah I don't know. I am using tire and gear calcs to come up with that, plus whatever tire size I set in the lcd (provided that is even correct). I really need a gps but I sold it with my c...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Ok well I tried 62v. I think it bucked on me for about a second but then took off running. I made 3 runs up and down my street and then measured voltage at 61.7v so it was at 62v. It was flying however I did not have fat little Cecil in the back this time. 14mph at 62v = 130 calculated cadence. My o...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Do you know what the cadence (rpm) limit is for the original firmware for the 52v motor? I assume I must be getting close to it now. I wish I could try the 62v today but it is already dark and my 20w china charger has got another 30 mins until the battery is charged up to 62v. Maybe I will try a qui...

Thank you Jbalat. There is not much I can do at the moment though, I already sold my soldering guns. Actually you would laugh if you saw how I wired the wires inside the battery.

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

John and Cecil you should use some 12awg silicon wire and gold bullet connectors that are soldered on. Check out hobby king The wires are 14awg. You do realize that the power leads on the motor are 16awg? Thus whatever battery you plug in will be running through 16awg wires before it reaches the mo...

Hey dude, you were interested in my 15s battery test so I have some preliminary results for you. So far it looks very promising. I rec'd my small 21v 1a charger and charged my 3 batteries individually (takes forever to charge the batteries too). I just got back from a quick test run. I tried 61.1v ...

Re: TSDZ2 vs Bafang BBSO2

Tsdz2 is somewhat defective, the gears do not mesh properly and the nylon drive gear often gives out prematurely. The tsdz2 is somewhat powerful if you get the 52v 750w version. The bbs02 will have more power tha the tsdz2 and can handle higher amps and it appears much more reliable but it does not ...

I agree with you on this, however with me it look like half baked product.

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

I believe it does work. Currently I don't have a cadence sensor mounted but will do that soon. Does the opensource firmware display cadence as well? It feels like the motor assists easily up to around 90-100 RPM, will get back to this with real figures soon. You could be right in that I experience ...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Such disappointment. Yes, 48v controller firmware cuts battery power out at 42-43v. However that is not "half" the capacity of the battery. You are using just about all the "safe" capacity. It is not good to drain you battery below 3v per cell and it can cause it irreparable harm to do so. A 48v ba...

I wonder if there is a way to build simple and small reflective mylar panel(s) to redirect some light from the outside of the panel onto the area with the shadow to compensate for the power loss when the shadow is present?

Here is a video on replacing the blue gear, and it is done from the same side as the controller so it should be helpful.

Hi, Thanks, but I don't like to have the bad info out there! As for the high voltage cut/HVC, I am not sure... And remember, it's highly likely for the voltage to drop 1 or 2 due to sag on those little wires when any power goes through em, so you might be in luck . Especially if you have long wirin...
