Re: Cycle Analyst V3 preview and first beta release

For some reason I had missed what awsvt actually was. Please confirm that I've got it right this time:
A- Current limit (Amps)
W- Power limit (Watts)
S - Speed limit (kpm/mph)
V - Voltage limit? LVC?
T - Temperature limit

Lower case = output not limited
Upper case = output limited.

Re: Cycle Analyst V3 preview and first beta release

Simply disconnecting the throttle may not be the best plan because of the floating CA throttle input. I might recommend instead that you mimic the CA throttle override concept that Justin describes in the first paragraph of this post . Here you might tie a 5K resistor in-line with your throttle sig...

Re: Cycle Analyst V3 preview and first beta release

Just curious as to why you need it different to the throttle being in the off position. Partly it's because of legal reasons, to legally use the bike here the throttle can't drive the bike without also pedaling. But the main reason is just to force myself to actually pedal instead of using the thro...

That way the throttle will do nothing unless the bike is already moving ?
I want the throttle to be completely disconnected so it's only the torque sensor that drives the motor.

Re: Cycle Analyst V3 preview and first beta release

Is there a way to easily turn off the throttle so I can only use the Thun? I have soldered my throttle to the CA3 so It's not easily disconnected. I guess I can change the minimum input voltage to 5v, but that isn't ideal. One thing I'm not sure if we included was adhesive shrink-wrap to cover up th...

Yes, well that is easier said than done since I went for the SmartPie which has a built in controller. But it might be a good excuse to install a 72 volt controller/battery...

Re: Cycle Analyst V3 preview and first beta release

Hi, I have just connected and tested out the CA3 with the Thun torque sensor and it works very good. I received the CA3 with the Beta19 already installed so I haven't touched that. The only problem I have is that when I'm in high speed (relative to max speed, my bike isn't fast) and I stop pedaling ...

Re: Q128 201rpm Motor Not Enough Power.

... Battery http://www.bmsbattery.com/36v/362-bottle-ebike-battery.html That's the battery I wanted t buy. It looks very nice and should make a very stealth install. I couldn't use it though since it's only rated for 10A continues output. I don't know how it will work with the Q100 as the first pos...

Re: Golden Motors - New Smart-Pie Motor?

I'd like the silence of the Tidalforce together with the small size of a geared minimotor. I hope the smartpie is a good enough compromise. Small and not too noisy. I just hope it climbs hills as good as you say. Norway is not a flat country.

Re: Golden Motors - New Smart-Pie Motor?

i got my smart pie for my wife. of course i had to put it on bike first to give it a spin. 48v 10ah battery it did 24mph on flat ground which surprised me. going up hills it looses some power and pedal assist was not necessary however i use it because i like to keep up my speed. nice thing is the 1...

Re: Golden Motors - New Smart-Pie Motor?

I have ordered one of these and expecting it to arrive next week. I didn't do the amount of research I should have done before I ordered this though, so I'm hoping I bought something useful. It was only some days after placing the order and paying that I learn that a geared hub would be more suitabl...
