So when you let go of the brake (or the gearsensor disengages), does the ebrake symbol also go away at the same time?A throttle slider icon shows visually where your input throttle is at, switching to a flashing mode if throttle auto-cruise is latched, and then to a brake lever if ebrakes are engaged.

When I hit the brakes, motor power is switched off but doesn't reappear for approx 10-20 seconds after releasing the brake. But it can be an intermittent problem...
If I shift gear by back-pedaling to cut the motor, the motor powers on and off as it should. Looks like this problem is specific to the CA's EBRAKE connection.
I'm on version 3.03, so no "SETUP EBRAKE" option.
So from this we know the ebrake signal is good up to the CA and the CA is interpreting it correctly.
No. The gear shift detector should affect the CA the same as applying the ebrakes. The plan here should be to leave that sensor disconnected for these tests to reduce the number of variables - let's just focus on misbehavior due to ebrakes...
Good. This will clear things up.
I start pedaling and playing with the throttle. Initially nothing happens - it's like I've lost all power. Eventually the motor kicks back in again, with both throttle and PAS responding as they should.
Ahha! Good sleuthing!20-20 wrote: ↑Dec 18, 2017 9:01 amTesting while monitoring the diagnostics screen: when I blip the throttle lever to kill the motor momentarily for the gear change, I can see the voltage OUT (top right of screen) drop then immediately climb back up again, but the motor doesn't restart for several seconds, regardless of voltage OUT. None of the flags went upper case.
That sounds perfect.20-20 wrote: ↑Dec 18, 2017 9:01 amMy fix was to raise ThrO>Brake Out from zero to 0.90 volts. That's below my ThrO>Min In of 1.17 volts and no signs of motor creep. Not sure if technically that's the right approach but it's working - a quick tap of the ebrake results in a momentary loss of motor power. Exactly what I was hoping for
If that's an acceptable fix,...
I think you have those backwards (W=torque PAS and A=Current throttle).20-20 wrote: ↑Dec 18, 2017 9:01 amWhile riding the bike with the diagnostics screen displayed, I noticed a couple of flags on view, but not in connection with the ebrake issue.
- 'A' was displayed much of the time but I guess that's standard when riding in Torque PAS mode (3-postion switch)?
- 'W' appeared whenever I hit the throttle

Agreed - it's how it performs on the road that counts. If I discover any further tweaks that improve gearshift performance I'll report back.teklektik wrote: ↑Dec 18, 2017 2:11 pmYou may be breaking new ground with that controller - not sure what's going on with the 'on the stand' tests. There are ramping adjustments in the CA, but without understanding why the controller is behaving oddly, it's all just experimentation. I would look to the BT controller configuration for things to twiddle.
Since all is well on the road, I'd ignore the 'stand' tests. This is not dissimilar from running a bike on the stand with CA Current Throttle - the wheel speed just keeps increasing as the CA keeps cranking the controller throttle up in an attempt to to hit the current level defined by the operator throttle (but there's no load so no large current). This always freaks people out, but it's normal and all works well on the ground.
