Thansk for the helpful info guys. I have an update!
Range issue resolved - I'd scrolled the Ah capacity down to a what looked like a correct "10.00Ah". On a hunch, I tried to reduce that a bit more, at which point it went to "99.99 Ahh" Apparently there is a glitch, in that 100 Ah shows as "10.00Ah" and below this, double-digit values read as "xx.xx Ahh". Having now set it to "10.00 Ahh" the range gauge is working as expected. Maybe I have an old firmware?
The "Protect" issue persists though. I triggered it again today after a 67kph blat for around 5 mins, but watching the temps periodically, I barely saw it reach 60 before going "protect" (was a cold day). The visible temp bar on the main screen didn't indicate at all, nor was there any of the usual gradual power reduction of the overtemp limiter. Just bam, "Protect mode". If it was an over-temp trigger, seems odd for this not to be present
Even more oddly, the *supposed* 100A breaker on the array before the controller tripped too, even though the Adaptto was only reading around 50a. After resetting the breaker and controller, and feeling it for heat ( barely warm to touch) I gave it another run, and it barely lasted 30 secs before the same thing.
*Something* is obviously exceeding a limit somewhere here, I'm just still not sure what. Have a "100a" breaker trip worries me, but it's an ebay jobbie and they're known for their...variable accuracy. The fact that it only took 30 secs to re-trigger suggest residual heat contributing to a thermal trigger, but the indicators on the display don't support this AND the manual does only say "Protect " mode is for over-current.. So I'm really not sure yet.....
Merlin: When you say yours "just stops for a few seconds", do you mean it actually locks you out with the "protect" mode and you have to manuall reset that in the settings, THEN ride on once below 72C? Or can you just wait for the temp to drop then hit the throttle?
Cowardlyduck: Holy crap, 9.1KW!! Temps aside, that would surely be drawing big amps.....could your "Protect" mode actually be due to over *current*?
I guess this is all really arbitrary until we know *exactly* what criteria trip the "Protect" mode...I may just try emailing Adaptto. Is there a preferred way for contact their tech support?
72C is right.
my max-e lowers the power and just stops for a few seconds. I can ride again till it reaches 72C again.
funny part. it happend on a really nasty 3-5kph trail over big rocks. motor had only 90C with Sinks and FF.
Controller has 5 Heatsinks and it is outside mounted. This happend only at this specific place.
on a "normal-limit-ride" motor reaches 150C and controller max 55C....well balanced that rare max-e/QS combo
