Today i did a test ride with the Adaptto Max.
First the controller showed !THR! which means the throttle puts out to much volts. After throttle calibration with some gaps (free travel) it started working.
There is no need to connect Halls, Phase wires the correct way. The controller has a function called "autodetect". If the wheel runs in the wrong direction you have only to reverse it (care should be taken because pedals also will turn backwards).
Autodetect takes about 2-3min and also calibrates hall angel offset and some other things.
After this procedure the controller is set up and ready to go.
There are three profiles (eco, normal, boost). In every profile you can set different batt amps, phase amps, brake amps, speed limit and acceleration rise.
Now some words to the comfort/performance/efficiency:
The sine wave torque mode throttle is loooooots!! more comfortable according to my previous speed based Infineon.
No more rough jerking if i shake throttle at middle speed.
The motor is very silent. There is no clattering at take off - it only produces some buzzing niose which is very silent.
The performance is really awesome for this little size. In boost mode (no acceleration delay) with 100A batt 200A phase the bike will now do a wheelie if i don't lean over the steerer
The first range test was not so good. With my Infineon and CA i needed about 30Wh/km (very steep hill up and down. about 10km). The Adaptto showed me about 40Wh/km but with much higher Amp settings.
For better comparison i will do a test with same amp settings as i used with Infineon.
The topspeed seems to be lower. It's now about only 64kmh on flat ground according to 73kmh with Infineon. Up the steep hill with Infineon about 60kmh and Adaptto 55kmh (at least the speedo says this. didnt test with gps)
Have to look closer to the settings if there is something adjust... Speedo settings seems to be correct.
My previous 18FET got a lot hotter. Especially at hill climbing when not full throttle used the Adaptto stays a lot cooler. It only got slightly warm not more (and there are no cooling fins on the case). I think thats the benefit of sine wave.
The Cromotor was quite hot after the ride. At high phase amps efficieny drops down and i think the additional 10Wh/km are mostly converted into heat (did lots of stop and go on the test ride).
keep you informed
