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

Even if you have the option to show the values on, you don't need to wait for them to show, and if you press up or down the value sequence will stop.

Re: TSDZ2 - rear light - buck converter?

It depends on how much current the light draws, TSDZ2 light output can provide only about 500mA and some people have reported the controller failing when using too powerful lamp. Usually rear lights don't use so much power though. With a voltage converter you need to take into account the loss of th...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Yea as mentioned several times already, there are different ways to get the cadence higher. But apparently this guy just does not want to get it, so no point arguing with him. I wonder why he's still so fixed on reading this thread though.

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Sounds dangerous. There are no 50lb. weights btw. There are only 5,10,25 & 45lb weights. A 25lb weight is no joke and a 45lb plate is an absolute beast. That's why I think some kind of large torque wrench might be more workable. I didn't think asking here was a bad thing. What is the point of us al...

For moving to higher voltage i need to put a new firmware or a 36v motor will work with 48v without any alteration? 90 rpm is to slow for me...i have a merida e one sixty with a shimano motor and i spin above that most of the time (off road use) You need to update the firmware.

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

many bicycle riders never exceed a cadence of 60 rpm... does that mean they are not 'cyclists' ? Yes. Mainly it means they're not even trying. I ran on the Circuit Of The Americas track tonight during Bike Night. I pedaled up to about 39 mph with a 52/13 top gear. If an old fat guy can put in about...

Is there a list of the error codes and their explanation for v. 1.0.0? I could not find any in the wiki. I'm wondering this because on my SW102 I see code "e: 03 Torq" which I assume refers to the torque sensor, but the torque and cadence readings in the menu seem completely fine. The error also occ...

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

On the VLCD6 display the last bar starts to flash right before the battery is empty, so between 3.25 - 2.90 it shows 1 flashing bar.

I don't think this is a problem, but I ...

Assist levels and their factors are not directly comparable between different bikes, especially if you haven't calibrated the torque sensor. Without calibration they depend on individual torque sensor readings which we know to differ wildly between motors. After calibration the gear ratio and wheel ...

Hello all, Just got my TSDZ2 installed and it's wonderful. However, as the autumn is soon arriving, I need headlights for the bike. I have understood that the Y-splitter from speed sensor provides 6 V for headlights. I ended up buying a pair of these: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000657217552.h...

I am considering giving up on this project lately as it seems to be severely limited by the motor capability. For my applications, I find it underpowered, and too easy to overheat. Nearly every ride, I find myself wishing it was just a BBSHD. I really don't think it's worth the time or money to try...

I Had exact the same issue with a pair of lights drawing about 5W. I had to buy a new controller :-( How did you find out that it was a controller that needs to be replaced? You could start with measuring if you still get the 6V output from the light cable, that would be necessary for the relay any...
