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

Hi Revher, I am a little confused with the forks and branches. what goes where, on which repo and on which branch, and who is backporting what to which repos and branches? I am (gladly) surprised to hear casahino is backporting things from mbrusa. This is a question I asked here before but is so far...

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

We haven't so many feedbacks on this procedure, because most people here are on Windows, and we would be happy if you (or any user of this procedure) could say some words on it: Happy if I can be of any help. The wiki for me was very clear. Too verbose for my taste, maybe shorter could be even clea...

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

I will actually have a go at modifying the firmware to calculate the internal resistance for me and display it. I have a pretty good idea on how to do it. I will of course share the code if I'm successful. I may contribute in the future too, but I have not taken a look at the code yet. Therefore th...

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

Hi mbrusa, yes, some details are sometimes difficult fully get through. But you just confirmed what kallt_kaffe and I finally understood.. Bars are volt based (as the original) % is a new feature, it needs capacity to subtract consumption, and is more accurate. The reset became more clear now. It re...

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

So the way I look at it (still not having looked at the code) the % left will show wrong number if you switch between batteries with different capacity or partially charge your battery but the bars will still be showing how much battery is left (as they are based on voltage). Also as a aHlast resor...

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

I am really confused here. My unmodified xh18 calculates the remaining %, without knowing the capacity. How? Patoruzusos you have to understand how the remaining battery% works. Hi mbrusa, I read your explanation, and then again. I shook my head and googleducated myself further. Fuel-Gauge ICs, Cou...

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

I find it somewhat hard to believe that a single impact did that to your gear but certainly looks like it needs replacing!!! I believe the impact broke only one or a few teeth. Until the impact, all was fine, but immediately after the motor did a repetitive and constant loud tok tok tok noise. Prob...

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

Bafang M600 would be ideal but would require a bit of bike surgery. Pretty impressed that the TSDZ2 even with a 52T front gear can still pull all that kit + girlfriend for 4 years. That motor should go in the hall of fame for abused TSDZ2 engines :) Remember I have a 11-50T cassette on the back, I ...

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

Are you sure you wouldn't be better off with something with a bit more oooomph, the poor old TSDZ2 must be having an asthma attack trying to pull that lot around. Maybe. It was (is) my first and only motor so far, bought 4 years ago. But more than this would probably be a legal problem in the EU. S...

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

13S9P battery pack, is that what the trailer is for, to carry the pack :D Almost true :lol: The trailer is a small agile monowheel, and the battery a rear pack, optically a normal size, until you lift it :) But when also carrying large and loaded pannier rear touring bags, the center of gravity bec...

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

The max battery capacity is only used to calculate the remaining%. Only one value can be saved in eeprom on shutdown. You should only change batteries when fully charged, which you can already do. I am really confused here. My unmodified xh18 calculates the remaining %, without knowing the capacity...

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

There are no resources for this, free memory is 4%, better to keep it available for anything else. I see. So many modes... it should be enough. I will try to install the firmware during the weekend and see what they are and how they work. I would like to feature request two battery profiles or at l...

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

Version 17a3649 is old and incomplete, the one written in the wiki is only the opinion of who wrote it. I'll have to correct it.. The most stable and complete version is the latest released. Good to know. Now I see a lot of new options, I will have to read the docs. I also went to read about "OFFRO...

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

New user here. Just compiled the firmware as explained here: https://github.com/emmebrusa/TSDZ2-Smart-EBike-1/wiki/OS-X-and-Linux-installation All went fine (main.ihx was created) I used git version: 17a3649, is that correct? Are newer versions unstable? And my main question: I have two battery pack...
