Re: 58v Echo Trimmer Powered Small Outboard

This weekend I will try to measure it under load once again. The trigger has variable resistance built in, no doubt. I just don't know if a variable POT style is available without fabricating the same voltage drop back to the hall sensor ring under the brushless motor.

Re: 58v Echo Trimmer Powered Small Outboard

I extended the trigger line and cut the ends here it connects into the main 7 wire harness and attached these to an 8 circuit bar in order be able to have a remote trigger. I tested the lines live with the battery connected and then with the trigger depressed. I did use a voltmeter.

Re: 58v Echo Trimmer Powered Small Outboard

I know for a fact it is a variable trigger, but the voltage is a steady 4.6v and 9.2v on certain wires an 0 for others. The voltage does not fluctuate on any of the trigger wires. I am using the factory trimmer grip and it works fine, but would prefer a dial so I can not have to constantly squeeze t...

Re: 58v Echo Trimmer Powered Small Outboard

Here is the wiring diagram. I need a brushlessmmotor guru to help figure this out. I need the replace the variable speed switch and hi/low to a pot style configuration. The wire color voltages are as follows. Without trigger pressed. With trigger pressed. Red 57v / 9.6v Yellow 57v / 4.6v Green 57v /...

Re: 58v Echo Trimmer Powered Small Outboard

To be honest I did not think I would get the performance out of that powerhead, but I was flat out wrong. The electric version is a toy and was modified around the fact that you have a very lightweight small outboard that has simple packs that are built in to the chassis and can be replaced in secon...

58v Echo Trimmer Powered Small Outboard

Good day everyone. I am in need of a bit of assistance. My company specialises in small gas outboards for kayaks and small watercraft. I currently have began working with brushless setups from Echo and have attached the powerhead with the built in the removable battery pack. This paired with the gea...
