Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Damn i am having alot Of bad luck on vacations with my tsdz2 😅, first it Lost tbe firmware, bought a new cable and reprogramed it. Then when i went for a Ride sodently it became damn hard to pedal (like real hard), even with the motor off . Limped home and opened it, but i cant find anything bad. I...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

For those who don't use open source firmware with appropriate display, has anybody tried to use unprofessional hobby grade things like WM150 watt meter or anything else to monitor the shape of the real time current spikes/peaks depeng on a cadance in order to see the overall stress on the system.

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Little review off my TSDZ2 (48v motor 52V battery) With the OSF, thermal pads and temp sensor is a damn good motor (never used it on oem form :mrgreen: ) I have ridden some bosh and yamaha (entry level ones) and the TSDZ2 is in my opinion better and more powerfull (and with the osf way more flexibl...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

~88kg. Guess around 95 with camelback and other equipment. I would think bottoming out 160mm suspension on the other bike is a lot more weight on the pedals. Im not jumping the fatbike, but it is a hardtail, so maybe the shockload is higher after all...? Shock load is what will start a crack at the...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Broke the spindle on my fatbike the other day. I was tuning in the pressure on the front fork, so I put a lot of weight on the pedals, and the drive side just snapped.

Re: Measuring motor current profile

Has anyone tried to measure curent profile on motors with torque sensors in order to better understand the behaviour of the motor. What exactly are you trying to determine?

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

I'm running 36V TSDZ2 with VLCD5 OSF and 48V battery. In the past two and a half months I biked over 2000km. So far so good. I just received spare blue gear just in case I need to replace it soon. One odd thing I noticed is that when pedalling quickly uphill it seems like motor "slips" (can't reall...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Very useful information indeed. This might be helpful also for displays that show condensation on the inside. Changing desiccant every 12 months would be too much to ask for. It wouldn't on hobby projects but it is impossible to do that on the "real" ebikes of my shop's clients though. Might be eas...

Re: Watt Meters

The Wattmeter needs to placed in series between the batt. and the controller, not paralleled. I have had about every kind of instrumentation from a CA on down and these days I just use a Voltmeter, it's all I need w/ LiPoly, as it's discharge rate is very linear.. W/ a new controller, I'll temporar...

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: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

I have had a problem with TSDZ2 for months. At first he noticed that the power had decreased, he was pushing less and less. Later it began to happen that from time to time it would go off, especially after a while pedaling and more likely on a steep hill. To try to find the problem I have flashed t...

I have a frightening problem with my TSDZ2. As soon as I connect the battery, the controller starts smoking and sparking. It wasn't always this way.

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

How can this brake the sprag clutch? Some who are using 2mm spacers between the main gear and the spider as a requirement to mount two chain rings might expect the failure of the sprag clutch then. Well I can't be sure if it was because of the gap or if the clutch was faulty, but soon after I chang...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

But beware, at least my spider was not a perfect fit. I had some play in the axle which is difficult to eliminate completely, as discussed before in this thread. Thus the spider rubbed against the outer plastic cover of the main gear, and both the spider and the edge of the cover are worn out. I no...
