Re: Cycle Analyst V3 preview and first beta release

I know the correct throttle connector coming from the CA..but when using an external shunt and generic controller..i must use the grren wire from the shunt to the green signal wire on the controller. However..do I still use all 3 wires of the CA throttle connector to the throttle itself at the hand...

May i ask what is the correct way to wire the actual throttle to the CA throttle connector?
Thanks!

regen amps, if I set my regen at 20 amps but my batteries can only handle 4 amps per cell at fast charge, my pack needs to be 5p but if im only 4p my regen amp settings should be 16 amps not 20 amps. or are the regen amps measured in phase amps and not charging amps to the battery.

Re: Torque sensor ?

That is not in any way a torque sensor.
How the controller responds to that cadence sensor is entirely up to the controller.

Re: Is a leisurely pedal cadence possible going 25 mph on an ebike?

On the Aventon Pace 500's 27.5" tires, a 52t chainring would get you a cadence of about 65rpm at 25mph, which isn't quite "beach cruiser" slow, but it's pretty leisurely. A 52t chainring is large, but it's not so large that you'll have to go looking for expensive specialty parts or anything like that.

Re: Why doesn't a li-ion battery take load?

Yeah, your problem here is that you built a pack out of scam cells. There's no way they're 12800mAh, and as you've discovered, they can't handle any real load. And as others have already mentioned, you're risking a fire with your charging behavior. I would suggest that you poke around and do a lot m...

Re: Can someone double check my torque arm installation?

I thought about that, but given the direction of wheel rotation and the fact that the arm would be held on by hose clamps, wouldn't it not do much to resist the axle rotating? It seems to me that the outer arm would just slide down the frame. I've used that torque arm in that configuration on a few...

Re: Reliability - Are there numbers?

That chain replacement interval is pretty close to my experience with my BBS02. I typically got around 700mi / 1100km out of each chain (KMC 8-speed), which meant I was replacing my chain almost once per month for a couple of years.

Mid-drive / High-mileage / Low-maintenance - Pick any two.

Re: EM3EV's battery with smart BMS

You can verify with the BMS app (swipe a few screens over to get to the 'setup' list), but if your BMS is set up the same as my EM3ev packs, it should start balancing at 3.9v/cell. So, starting at around 75% charge.

Re: Best Variable Regen Input ???

I use a separate brake lever for variable regen, similar to Amberwolf's setup by the sound of it.

You can get bigger sizes too but the PP75 is sufficient for 200+ phase amps. Serious question, how do you figure the PP75 is good to 200+ amps when it's rated for 75?

Since each battery contain a BMS i would think that it does not matter if the batteries are at the same voltage. Right? A BMS is good for saving you from unintentional stupidity.

Re: Variable regen drag brake for tandem bike w CA3 & PhaseRunner

If you're activating regen through the CA3, it WILL release the cruise control. I do it all the time. If you connect your regen throttle directly to the Phaserunner, as you suspected, the CA3 will have no way of knowing that the ebrake has been applied, and it probably won't release cruise control. ...

The simulator seems to use a 75%-ish SOC when selecting a pack from the dropdown list.

Also, the simulator correctly distinguishes between nominal 4...
