How to connect Cycle Analyst to Kelly Controller?

Post by smeagol222 » Nov 10 2016 8:22am

I heard a special plug might be needed? I really dont want to open up the controller and solder things around
like this http://www.ebikeschool.com/add-cycle-an ... ontroller/

No need to open the controller. Use an external shunt wired something like this:
CA3-KEB.png
Wiring for CA3 - CA2 is similar but needs a little different throttle hookup.

If you are running 50-60A battery continuous current or less, you can use the more compact molded external shunt instead and just wire it as described in the Guide - just wire either fat red Vbatt+ wire from the molded shunt to pin 1 (PWR) above instead of to the battery as illustrated in the Guide - the other fat red wire can be left disconnected.

This is the wiring for a CA3 where the throttle and ebrake go to the CA. The CA2 hookup is identical except for the throttle/ebrake - see the CA3 Unofficial Guide 'Appendix D. Adding a CA-DP Connector to a Generic Controller' for details.

Good to know- thanks for this info. I also confirmed with kelly controller also

they said below and gave me this PDF
All the wires are outside of the controller.
They are located on the J2 cables.
All the wires are soldered on the J2 cable and got a 6pin SM connector finally for CA connector.

I thought that for my use CA was a bit of an overkill. $20CAD dc voltmeter/ammeter should do the trick

Does this makeshift circuit diagram look right?

no.
Wire the (+) connection as shown in the diagram above to pin 1 (PWR) so the keyswitch turns off the display...

I like your streamlined set-up. I'm in the process of my second build and I would like to make it as compact as possible. Not using CA3 is one of my goals. Can you post what size of the motor and Kelly controller you are using? Do you get smooth acceleration?
How is the smart precharger working for you?
Sorry about so many questions. I'm still on the steep learning curve.
Don't expect from life to be easy and then it will be.

Hey I'm just starting out with this build, currently waiting on the battery to ship
