Hi,
I'm doing torque control on a BLDC motor. I have some problems with getting the torque over 10 Nm. It seems like I can't get more than 50A, actual AC current (Iq,) even though I set the max amps to 100A. And the max torque is 100Nm. I'm using a battery bank, 84V, that should be able to drain a lot more. Is there some setting in DVT that I've missed to change?
Thanks!

updating the thread, since people can't figure it out after things moved on the Heinzmann site

Go here:
http://www.heinzmann.com/en/download-el ... s-software
Then navigate the tree to "Motor Controllers", then "Software" then "Sevcon Software" and click on "Sevcon Install".

Hi Frodus,

Is there any chance you might have an updated username and password for the heinzmann site? Those ones posted in 2015 are no longer valid.

Regards.

I don't.

Basically, unless you have an OLD IXXAT cable, it won't work with that software anyway. I sell licenses and programmers at my site if you need one.

Is it possible to get that software anymore? I have an old cable.

Hi,

I've been trying to program the Sevcon for a while, now it doesn't allow me to save a DCF or send a working DCF to unit. I've updated the firmware and still nothing. It says the Local Line contactor not mapped and Data type(15) for 4617, 1 unrecognised.

Has anyone encountered this issue, also when i try to save the current DCF it crashes.

Kind regards,
Gonçalo Olas
