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

Hi Emma, as you will read below i have a cargo bike with an IGH. you mention a ~ 0.5s when shifting, stupid question time; is the bike in question got stock TS firmware, or OSF of some sort onthe display and motor? I have a 48v TSDZ2 with 52v 14s battery. Using the standard VLCD5 display. I have in...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Apologies if this has been posted previously... I have an Alfine 11 speed IGH (Internally Geared Hub), and found that gear changes would fail due to the force applied by the TSDZ2 to the drive train (even when I reduced pressure on the pedals while pedalling). I would need to stop pedalling for a co...

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

Firstly, let me say how appreciative I am of the effort that has been put in by all the people involved in the development of the open source software for the TSDZ2. In particular the team who developed the version for the original displays (VLCD5 in my case). So thanks MBrusa for the latest versio...

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

I found this item, which appears to be what we need for the Gear shift sensing as it connects to the existing VLCD5 brake sensor sockets, but it doesn't appear to use 5v source. Unsure how it can work without the 5v. It also has brake sensors suitable for hydraulic brakes... https://www.aliexpress....

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

You should be able to measure a voltage on the brake input when the brake isn't engaged. It can be either close to 5V or close to 3V3. It becomes zero if the input is connected to gnd. (Obviously you can't use it to power your gear switch sensor) So you basically only have the 5V supply voltage mis...

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

Thanks, Does anyone know what the wiring diagram would be to wire the shift sensor to the brake sensor and do they use the same type signal source? I have a Shimano 11 speed IGH and find that I need to stop pedalling for a second or so to allow the hub to change gears. This can cause a loss of mome...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Headlight circuit? I tried to wier up my 6VDC LED headlight, and it seems like the headlight circuit has a current limiter. 48v 750W+LCD3 v0.190 FW. My light draws about 1.5A @6VDC. When I connect it to the light circuit the light flashes, but will not stay lit. Does anyone know if there is a curre...

Re: Tsdz2 firmware open source adapted to vlcd5

I tested the TSDZ2_Controller_vM0.16.D_and_TSDZ2_Configurator_Beta_0.2.0 firmware with a VLCD5: When switching to street/offroad mode by pressing the lights/power button 2 times in eco mode it switched between modes (err03/err04) but there was no change and the motor always stopped working over 25k...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Looks like we are all suffering from the overheating issue. I recently installed the temp sensor, and was a little disappointed to find the 'E06' showing on the LCD, after only going a short distance (Turbo setting) and when the ambient temp was only app 20C. I raised the temp cut out from 75C to 8...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Here in Boston we just had the hottest July on record, so I took it upon myself to do a thermal management mod for the TSDZ2. I was routinely having to dial back my assist usage to stay below 75C on my 23 mile (37km) round trip commute so I decided I would do something about the TSDZ2's awful therm...

BMS is a common failure point, as many are cheaply made. I am extremely picky about BMSed battery packs for this reason..

Please advise what constitutes a 'good' BMS, and where do you suggest is a good source to purchase.

Re: The E-bike battery and a tale of perseverance...

Hate to say it but you never ruled out a bad cell as being a problem. What happens when one cell goes kaputz is that the nearby cells often overcompensate by being of higher voltage. So your multimeter may have missed a key piece of information by measuring 3 cells in series. You are correct of cou...
