I'm converting a type 2 VW bus using a small rear Model S drive unit. I've sourced a Model 3 standard range battery that will either fit on the floor inside the bus or under the bus, haven't decided. I'm using an EV Controls T2C controller. The only thing I haven't nailed down is the BMS for the battery. What are my options?
Thanks for your help.

The Tesla 3 battery has bms as part of the penthouse. As well as a charger and dc-dc converter. You will need a controller for the battery pack. Ingenix is the source. Openinverter has boards for the Tesla 3 charger and bms. Not sure whether they have a product to control the contactors. EVTV also has a controller but last I knew you had to buy the battery from them as well.

Thanks for this information. I'm a ME, not EE and some of what I read is over my head. I can wire up contactors and the like but does using the Tesla 3 BMS that's part of the penthouse require much technical savvy? This BMS for the Tesla 3 battery has my head spinning.
