Hi all,

in the meantime I had a chat with Justin and I might get some unpotted phaserunners without any wiring attached.
So the options at this point are wide open, and I'll prepare some documentation regarding possible wiring. Could you give me some kind of idea of what you would prefer?

What about one that is plug and play with the BBSHD and CA, and you would pot them?

Ideally unbolt the stock controller section and bolt on a new assembly with PhaseRunner and BBSHD compatible connectors inside and CA compatible connectors coming out. Fairly stock looking, maybe with some subtle fins for cooling, nothing too obvious.

To connect a standard CA3-DPS with a standard Phaserunner and a standard BBSx you would need 5 adapters:
1. a throttle adapter to connect your BBSx throttle with the CA3
2. a brake adapter to connect your BBSx brakes with the CA3
3. a PAS adapter to connect your BBSx PAS sensor with the CA3
4. a hall adapter to connect your BBSx hall sensors with the Phaserunner
5. a phase adapter to connect your BBSx phase wires with the Phaserunner

note that the bridge between the PAS adaptor and the hall adaptor is for the +5V power supply to the PAS sensors.

Is there a way to get PAS working on the phaserunner?

By utilising the BBSHD's original PAS/DIR sensors, the CA3 evaluates these signals and controls the Phaserunner via the PAS-setup menu.

Is there any estimate on when the higo connected cycle analyst will become available? I had already made my phaserunner higo compatible but the CA would be amazing.

Do you make these adapters? Otherwise I will have to buy HIGO plugs and crimp on JST connectors if I don't want to cut the original connections?
