Re: Fully wireless ANT+ BLE TSDZ2 mid drive motor (like Specialized Turbo Levo) -- Flexible OpenSource firmware

Sounds really interesting, in the way not to have the need for a display and obtain integration with our existing devices. A smartphone or a Garmin watch/cycle computer can be used, in case, instead. My humble opinion is to keep the physical ( wired to the motor ) 3 or 4 button pad, in order to do ...

Re: Fully wireless ANT+ BLE TSDZ2 mid drive motor (like Specialized Turbo Levo) -- Flexible OpenSource firmware

Why not just use the Mosfet in your BMS? Most of them have an option for a button to disable the output. On my chinese bluetooth BMS i can disable the output by BLE, too... Because the idea is to replace the current on/off button of display to a on/off switch controlled by the wireless board, so th...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Hi, 15S2P battery with 21700 cells from Samsung 50E - 5000maH About the battery with 15S what I can say is that I have done 500km without problems. But I think I am still in the testing phase and therefore I think it is risky for those who have no technical knowledge about this technology to move to...

Re: TSDZ2 mid drive with 860C, 850C or SW102 displays only -- Flexible OpenSource firmware (Casainho code only)

I see, so a 15S battery will be still the best in terms of efficiency and max RPM, even with the field weakening active But there is also a problem with PWM frequency, leading to bad efficiency at very high RPM, right ? If we apply a very high voltage to the controller, we can burn it. Yes, the cap...

Now whenever I connect the battery to the engine, I previously disconnect the battery internally via the smartphone and put it in the lock state. In my case, when the eng...

I use it mainly to change the Garmin screen, as the Garmin touch screen doesn't work very well with gloves. Sometimes I have to press the Remote key more than once to be able to change th...

Re: Fully wireless ANT+ BLE TSDZ2 mid drive motor (like Specialized Turbo Levo) -- Flexible OpenSource firmware

Have you considered using the Wahoo Element Bolt. It’s £180 in the UK and has a battery life that’s almost triple that of the comparative Garmin 520 device. It supports LEVs, can be setup wirelessly from a smartphone etc. I haven’t got any experience of programming etc, so I apologise in advance if...

Re: Fully wireless ANT+ BLE TSDZ2 mid drive motor (like Specialized Turbo Levo) -- Flexible OpenSource firmware

I bought the last version, the Edge 530 and it says 20 yours of battery - it is good to see that characteristic increasing over time / models. This model also supports a connection of a battery pack. Unfortunately there is no information how that battery pack connection works, so a connection base ...

Re: Fully wireless ANT+ BLE TSDZ2 mid drive motor (like Specialized Turbo Levo) -- Flexible OpenSource firmware

Aspects that I think are very important: 1 - Possibility of having the TSDZ2 information on the Garmin GPS (Human Power, Candence, Assit level, Battery level) through Ant+. 2 - Possibility to connect to the smartphone via bluetooth 3 - Possibility of configuring the TSDZ2 via smartphone 4 - Possibi...

Re: Fully wireless ANT+ BLE TSDZ2 mid drive motor (like Specialized Turbo Levo) -- Flexible OpenSource firmware

I am afraid that the Garmin Wireless Remote does not act very quickly in changing the level. On the other hand, you cannot have Walk Assist because the button must always be pressed. WA is important in MTB and Backpacking. We neeed to test and see how remote works. why not use a cheap bluetooth bik...

Casainho, This is an outstanding solution. If Casainho manages to do this development he will take the TSDZ2 FW to the Next Level. It is amazing that he has the motivation to do this.

No!! Our firmware see if the option bytes value is incorrect and if so, write the correct one. As soon as i saw in the code it does only for those that it uses but not for all of them. If those that are unused by the fw are corrupted the microcontroller might not even start properly and crash... Bu...

Do you think it is possible to replace the capacitors and test the controller again? That controller is hard to repair and since the cost of a new one is cheap, I think is best to replace for a new one. I also have that same BMS, I will in future use the soft lock / enable/disable on the BMS. It is...

Whenever I have to charge the battery, I disconnect it from the engine. When reconnecting the battery, a large spark occurs because the battery is fully charged. A hypothesis for the source of the fault may be the high voltage of the battery, 63V causing a spike in the controller and over time the ...
