The Sabvoton Sinewave Controller is very programmable. Much more so than the Infineon. There is an app, but the interconnect is USB/serial. It is always "live" so it can be read out and programmed while riding, if you had that set up.
It can definitely take more than I'm putting through it. Looks like I'm using about 50% of it. After blowing up a few 24 FET controllers, I'm taking a conservative approach, and these settings are performing well for commuting. Probably would change them for racing, if I did that.
Some Sabvoton Specs I collected from my notes:
24 IRFB4110 FET Sinewave controller, uses hall sensors and FOC
6KW continuous, 12KW peak for 3 min
150A max, 85A continuous battery
phase current 150A rated, 350A max (450A protected)
0-75A slide recharge
hall sensor learning
field weakening 0-100A
phase current control throttle, adjustable ramping w separate up and down rates
bluetooth and usb interfaces
zombiess's units have variable voltage input for regen/ebrake
zombiess recommends 150A battery, 300A phase. (Cromotor@18S)
I'm running 80A battery 120A phase. I don't need the front wheel lifting off the ground. At 80/120A it accelerates smartly and the front suspension unloads a lot. If I pedal hard while under full acceleration I can feel the front wheel bouncing off the ground, so it is not far from lifting.
At my settings, even after climbing the hill the Sabvoton is barely warm. The CroMotor warms up a bit more than the controller. But it is only warm.
I have field weakening set to zero. That would raise top speed and allow using more power, but I have not investigated that. It might be useful for a motorcycle, but this is a bicycle... Using FW would also decrease range. I'm generally interested in maximizing range.
On the level I can't run 6KW continuous. That power level only occurs on hard acceleration and steep climbing, even at 15% gradient as the speed ramps up the power drops off due to back EMF. I think it drops down to 3KW or so, hard to look at displays while navigating the potholes and traffic.
Top speed is 32-33 with 18S and 17" Moped rims and Michelin Gazelle 3.0 rear tire. On level ground it is around 1KW. It is hard to tell, I haven't tried to characterize it that carefully. Speed is more than enough for commuting. Torque throttle makes it easy to control.
I would say the only downside to the Sabvoton is the size and weight. It is a bit much for most bicycles. I had to reorganize the battery pack out of the lower Borg battery section because this controller would not fit in the upper rear controller area of the frame. The Adaptto is much smaller, but this has some downsides as well. The Adaptto may be easier to blow up, I've heard. The Sabvoton seems to be very tough. The Adaptto's seem to do quite well, so they are not fragile either. I'll probably try an Adaptto some time too, especially on a bike with less room for a large controller.
