CAv3 and legal gas: silly me!

Post by quamau » Feb 14 2020 5:33pm

My bike uses since years a thumb throttle enabled through a 6-poles PAS. This was done via CAv3: pedaling is sensed but serves the only purpose to enable the throttle, thus keeping the bike legal (Europe): when pedaling stops the motor stops. Super-satisfied!

Some time ago I updated the CAv3 firmware (bunch of versions in one shot) and - silly me - I did not make a backup of the settings. Short story: making the throttle legal via PAS does not work anymore, and I am unable to figure it out or remember how it was set.

Anybody available to help?

Thx!

AFAIK, you need the below:
[ PAS->PAS Mode ]
No Assist: No assist is provided of any kind. However, because a PAS device is installed, the SLim->MxNoPdlSpd setting has effect even in No Assist mode. This can be useful for simple sensor wheels in locales where regulation imposes a pedaling requirement to enable throttle operation, but where PAS assist is not desired. [Default]
