Re: Help with Sabvoton and USB ($20 PayPal reward!)

Rx/Tx stick around 3v. Red is 5v. The 3v is not likely a true reading. What you're probably seeing is the meter trying to average the serial data pulses, which you could see with an oscilloscope, or if you have a Frequency Counter (Hz) measurement on your meter, it'll also indicate a pulse train ra...

Re: Just finished bike ( Black Lightning) For Sale

Top notch parts and build. If I didn’t have so much cash invested into my own blacked out bike, I’d be all over this. Good luck!

the baudrate will probably be the same. i think my controller has a empty spot on the PCB for a rs485 converter chip.
Cool! I just got a KK 232->485 DB9 converter that should do the trick.

Re: Bluetooth dongle for ebike - BAFANG, Kunteng, KingMeter

Let’s get some tech info; how exactly are you going to achieve making this device “compatible with most DIY”?

Is it RS232, RS485? CAN? What’s the Bluetooth module, just a HC-05? How are you going to work with iPhone iOS compatibility?

Also, do you think the baudrate is still 19200 even though it’s RS485? Any way to test for output baudrate?

have you tried to flip the green and white wire? if it is rs485 you will need a other converter. can you open up the controller to check if there is a rs485 converter chip? http://ebike.nexun.pl/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/SSC.pdf According to the spec sheet, it is indeed RS485.

https://imgur.com/gallery/Kw3MZ Here’s a look at what I’m dealing with. I jumped the ground to the black throttle wire. That seemed to close the circuit up. Still no RX on the PC side. Rx/Tx stick around 3v. Red is 5v. Tried using the HC-05 module and also my USB to TTL. Tried setting baudrate to 19...

you can check the ground connection from the "USB" connector to the plug on the sabvoton side. the ground connection connects to pin 1. 5 volt is on pin 2 . USB white is on pin 7. USB yellow is on pin 6 if there is a brake in the ground line, you can use any other ground wire. from the throttle con...

Sabvoton SSC96100 - New, w/ CA3-DP harness & shunt

$180 + shipping. Never used. I don't have the patience to set this one up.

If you do have the patience, you'll have an excellent controller.

Location of the Sab' is in Central California. Pickup available or can meet someone half way if reasonable.

Pics coming soon, but it's what you'd expect.

Re: Sabvoton MQCON review and documents

I hooked up my MQCON today and couldn't get it to turn on. No red LED, nothing. If I disconnected the hall sensors, it would flash a red LED 13 (or 12, I forget) times. But once I reconnect the hall sensor, back to doing nothing.

What's going on here?

Re: Cycle Analyst V3 preview and first beta release

Good news on the halls! If you have the skills, you might test diode D2 and either replace it or just jumper it with a solder blob without trying to remove it. If you don't have the skills, this isn't a good place to learn since a foul up may take options with Grin off the table - an email to them ...

I spun the wheel and jumped the yellow to black and observed no change in the arrow. Th...
