Grin says
If you just manually short the signal to Gnd you'll see it toggle down, correct?

When I shorten the signal
SETUP PAS DEVICE only D go up and down :cry:

I made screenshot about ca config
The screenshot was standard, I need read first
The program is not working very good, :cry: to attemp a lot of times before succeed

This is the config

Justin from grin technologies write:
"Be sure that you're seeing a difference between pins 3 and 4 on the PAS plug when shorting.

Shorting to ground pin 3 should be the D arrow, and pin 4 should be the P arrow."

That was wrong.

I have changed the two wires.

When I short pas now the P go down. :D
But when I turn crank, P still not move up and down
I have tried differend resistors but I do not succeed in moving P :oops:
Without resistor 1.6V and 4.6V
With 20K resistor I get 1.2V and 2.8V
With 10K resistor 0.9V and 2V


With 5.6K resistor 0.7V and 1.58V its working :idea:

From exess-bikes:

The only problem is the controller because Bafang has made several versions which are not compatible. But we are currently developing our own controller which will be much more reliable, more efficient (higher range), better software, better protection. It will be available end of 2018. It fit in the place where the Bafang controller is mounted, so it just replaces the Bafang Controller. It comes with all bikes from January 2019 and it will be available as an aftersales part as well. So the customers having already an EXESS bike can use this controller also.

Will you be able to run more than 30A through the new controller?

yes we will be able to run more than 30A. I don’t know yet how much current we will enable, this needs to be determined.

Is this controller available yet? I have an Ultra and frame on the way and I have plenty of room inside frame for external controller mount...

The controller from exess-bikes is meant to replace the internal one. It's not an external controller. I don't know if it is ready yet, but send them an email and check.

I just wanted to thank everyone who contributed to this thread. The pinout information and other helpful information allowed me to configure my new CA3 and PR to work with my new Bafang ultra 1000 build.

This thread gave me all the information I needed to have the confidence to order the parts and start the build! Worked flawlessly on the bench thanks to this thread!

GREATLY APPRECIATED!

Hi all,

I'll get my first G510 Ebike soon !
Did someone can tell me the dimensions and watt value of the stock "Shunt" resistor ?
I want to replace it by 2x2.5mohm.
And the Mosfet will be replaced by IRFS7530PbF.
What do you think ?
Thanks

Those are 60v rated. OK for a 36v system but I would want a higher voltage rating for a 48 or 52v system.

You right, so it will be the IRFS7730PbF.
Thanks.

Hi,

To reach 2500W, do you have replace the mosfet ?
Or they are good enough and it's useless ?
Thanks.

Running the stock controller at a higher current has had reliability issues, but I don't think the FETs are the weak point. It seems the voltage regulators and some 5v zener diodes across the 5v supply like to short out. Something like a big 5v TVS diode on the 5v supply might solve that.
