Why did you exchange this controller for something else?
Do you have programming cable? Does it work with hub motors?

Nope. I bought it from someone who scrapped the frame of the scooter. People who own a Govecs scooter often dont know the value/potential of the Sevcon in it. At first I wanted to keep it as spare controller for my own Govecs. But then I realised it would be very unlikely that it would go bust. My max amp setting is only 60 A at 84 VDC so way underspecced. Original Govecs factorysetting is something like 35/40 A so these controllers are not abused by any means.
And then I wanted to use it for a boat conversion to electric but i quickly realised that that wont be happening for a few years :cry: Boats apparently cost a lot of money :wink: which I need for more important matters atm.

So thats why i am selling this.

I have programming cable (you need Ixxat CAN USB converter v1.5/v1.6). And yes it works with hubmotors.
But you want to know what you are doing when tuning Sevcon controllers.
I dont believe manufacturers of hubmotors can send you the parameter DVT file which you need to avoid this tuning trouble.

If you dont have this converter and you want to avoid the troublesome tuning phase then you probably better off with a Kelly or Sabvoton drive or something.
