Re: how to program a sevcon gen4

Hello Charles, I received the IXXAT today (i chose a galvanic isolated version). Now, the DVT software asks me for a TCL file (of the VX-2). I thought i got my hand on the file, but it is a .DCF file. Am i doing something wrong, do i have to convert the file, of do i have the wrong file? Brutally as...

Also, are there password-protected areas, or is everything just freely accesible? When i'm in and hav...

Re: how to program a sevcon gen4

well, throttle pot seems to be o.k., but is there a seat switch? If so, where should it be? Do you have a running VX-2? I'm curious at the voltage of the "in reast" position of the throttle. (measured on J10 or P10, pin 1 and 2) I don't have a FW/rev switch, it is in the throttle at my vectrix. Are ...

Hello,

I contacted Sevcon U.K. , but they can not provide me the DVT software, and send me back to my vectrix dealer where i purchased the scooter from in the first place...

Is there someone here that can provide me this software, so i can try to take a look what's wrong with my Sevcon?

Thanks!

Netherlands, Zoetermeer. So, a programmer is "all" i need? At work, we have a company that services our pallet trucks, and they use Sevcon. I KNOW he has a programmer, as he can adjust speed, current, ramp, braking, etcetera. So the main question would be: Does it need specific software? Or can we h...

Re: E-max 110s lifepo4 upgrade

I need to do some explaining... I bougt a Vectrix VX-2, and stated that it had to ride 70km/h. So, the dealer accepted that, Put in a new controller, and erased the controller for me. Then it didn't work at all... So, he ordered a new IFM board, as Vectrix told him that he needed this as an upgrade....

Re: E-max 110s lifepo4 upgrade

Can someone post the dimensions of the battery compartment?

Is it possible to relocate the controller, and use that space for batteries as well?

I'm thinking about purchasing a 110S and put Winston's in them, but trying to figure out how much Ah's would fit in...

Thnx.

Re: repairing A123 victpower package, anyone?

comes to mind: what would be the correct voltage to charge these packs? The charger i got with it, gives 58.4 volts. When i calculate 16S, makes 16 times 4.2 volts, getting a total of 67.2 volts, or better said: 8.8 volts too low? Currently, they seem to get only (58.4/16) 3.65 volts each. Now, that...

What would you do then?
Why not removing the tape?
