Hey guys, so I finally got a temporary store site setup for the beta RC Cycle Analyst, so for those wanting to purchase the device and give this a try you can do so directly here:rodgah wrote:I would be interested in it for sure!
The price is the same as the large screen CA-LDPS device, or $125, but to be complete you will need some kind of shunt with the system for the current sensing. The molded inline shunt is certainly most convenient for those running in the <2kW power levels. Otherwise in a pinch it would be possible to tap into a length of the battery ground wire if you aren't too concerned about the overall current accuracy. 6 inches of 10 AWG wire is about 0.5 mOhm. I did list a proper 0.5 mOhm shunt on the website as well, but it's probably larger and heavier than the actual ESC device.
I'll have a batch of 15-20 of these made up during the week and they should be able to ship by this coming Friday.
Naturally, this is also a beta testing program, so part of the point is to get a spread of systems that are field testing the device to help find glitches or improvements that need to be made. I'm hoping that it will mostly work out as I've implemented things, but until If there are situations that require reprogramming the firmware, then you may have to ship it back here to be reflashed, (or if you are familiar with in circuit microchip programming and have the necessary programming tools, we can send the updated .hex file directly). As well, I don't expect there to be any hardware complications with the CA sending a PWM servo pulse to the ESC, but until we have a number of systems you never know.
So, just understand that.
