I can't live without my JLD404s. Can't beat it at $65.
raptor 1200 in a metro? you still have a transmission?!?The motor: ADC 8'"
The controller: Raptor 1200
The charger: Manzanita pfc20
The batteries: 45 Tornado 100ah cells.
BMS: Cell log 8. I have been reading up on this, and like what I see. I will top balance the pack initially, and view it from time to time, but I do intend to use the high and low voltage signals ro protect my cells.
The instrumentation: Looking for ideas. I have a dead Xantrex in there right now, so basically I have nothing. I am looking for ideas for simple cost effective display.
Probably same place Jack gets his...lightobject is one hit above him on a google search.I think I like the jld404 more. Where do you get it for under 100$
if you already have a shunt, it will probably be ok as they are sized to max amps you expect to put thru producing a 'typical' voltage for the meter. likke a 500a-50mV is pretty typical. Going from memory, I think both the evDisplay and CycleAnalyst expect 0-50mV output to the meter.... not sure if they can handle 0-75mV....It looks like jacks includes a shunt. The one for 68 does not say if it has a shunt. This car is equipped with a shunt with leads going to the inop xantrex. I do not know much about shunts yet, and I can not see any markings on the one I have. Is there a way to determine if this one will be appropriate? It is big and heavy and has a brown composite board and was used with 20 6 volt trojans.
Yes as Frodus points out. Get them from one source.Get one with the JLD direct from Lightobject
(and BTW, 50mV shunts work with them, you just have to play around with the scales on the JLD. Jack goes over this in one of his blogs).
