Re: TSDZ2 open source firmware only for KT-LCD3 (v0.19.0 / v.0.20.0beta1)

Mbrusa

Do you have a link to the hex file for the motor based on your changes and Buba's V20, I'm just about to reprogram a unit and refit it to the bike

Thanks

Re: TSDZ2 open source firmware only for KT-LCD3 (v0.19.0 / v.0.20.0beta1)

Guys, Finally I've got the new controllers arrived from China ( ordered early Jan ) after drowning my motor ( it had a very early sealing system on the chain side ) and will need to reprogram them. Do we have a single motor file with the new over run solution available suitable for the LCD3 ( Buba B...

Re: Tongsheng crank arms are for riders of height 5'9" - where can we get smaller cranks?

Both the Tongshen and the Bafung use an old fashioned " square taper " crank arm. From the standard Tongshen 170mm as supplied some of us have replaced the right crank with a Shimano I think by memory E600 BMX crank which has almost no offset which then brings the Q factor back into the normal range...

Re: Tsdz2 firmware open source adapted to vlcd5, vlcd6 and xh18

Aren't you making life awkward for yourself, both the OS and the V20 have a brake wire, its a simple fit and already at the VLCD5 display. The gear shifter is another set of wires which you are going to have to wire in and doesn't really do anything other than what the brake wire will do ? Both the ...

Re: TSDZ2 mid drive and 850C and SW102 displays only -- Flexible OpenSource firmware (Casainho code only)

Unfortunately PSWpower have been caught up in the Coronovira problem and is taking a lot of weeks to get stuff out of China at the moment, we ordered 2 x controllers back in January and yet to receive them when normally we get gear within a week or so from them. To be fair they have kept us informed...

I have both the 36v & 48v motors on separate bikes, you can run both at the voltages you state but the 36v motor at sustained higher wattage will burn out. A real world example of this would be the 1 mile hill climb I do to a trail head near me, using the bike with the 36v motor at a sustained 550 ...

On the 3 motors I have sitting here, its water damage that has been the failure on all 3.

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Is any issues to 36V motor powered by 14s battery? Overheating or something? No problem, just make sure you limit the battery amps to a level which will keep the motor under 550W - 600W or so, you can pull a lot more, some are mentioning 800W's or so, but the temptation is to use that sort of power...

We get trouble on occasion with the" read only " bit which has to be reset on some motors.

Re: TSDZ2 open source firmware only for KT-LCD3 (v0.19.0 / v.0.20.0beta1)

In the V20 you have to activate the cruise function in the setup screen, I think it’s default is off in the initial setup. Of course it is activated. The relevant submenu 0 has value 1. Do you confirm that after you press DOWN for a second or so your cruise starts working? Sorry I have never used t...

The issue is that the motor refuses to work with fully charged battery (54,2V), but when I discharge the battery down to 53,8V, it starts working fine then. Are there any available informations about how often this issues occurs, prectagewise? I´m thinking about buying a new controller and swapping...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Caisanho, looking good and this will give a nice number of options re the displays.

Before I go opening my SW102 to program it for the first time, has there been any further development to not need to open the display to program it ?

Re: TSDZ2 open source firmware only for KT-LCD3 (v0.19.0 / v.0.20.0beta1)

Personally I’ve only ever run V20 with the LCD3 and factory default with the VLCD5 early on. On neither have I had any experience of over run. Watching the various threads on the motor, the over run issue seems to be mainly on those using the Marcoq version of using V19 on the VCLD5 screen. For the ...

Re: TSDZ2 mid drive -- Flexible OpenSource firmware (Casainho code only) for TongSheng TSDZ2 mid drive motor

Casainho, I agree that you can get a rogue torque sensor, but I think Jeff may well just need to set up the power output to his requirements which even with a rogue sensor he should be able to do, just the linear ramp of the sensor may not be the best. The other side of the story is that he needs a ...
