are Kelly controllers in stock somewhere or is it still a semi vaporware
product?

I'm wondering what kind of a product they have... I mean, I haven't
seen anyone use a kelly before... has anyone out there had any luck
with one? Do they hold up to the specs?

i got mine from electricvehicleusa, but i think you
can get them from the source too, just do a search for
them.

i've only bench tested my kelly thus far as my bike is
not yet ready for a road test.

This Citi/ComutaCar owner has ordered a Kelly, but no word on whether it's in
the vehicle yet:

Well I got a kelly controller serial version - non regen 84 volts 600A limit.
I just finished installing it all last night 11-19-07. Still need a little
more work and more chargers and one for accessory battery. The motor I am
using is one of those old aircraft generators made in 1951 on a 1995 geo
metro. I have only taken it on one test drive and could easily get to
35-37mph in 2nd gear using 78V pack. I also bought a serial (called
something else too) to USB adaptor $5 on ebay to program it. The computer
laptop connected just fine with this and using their adaptor and their cable
and I lowered peak amps to 85% of max. It gives options for throttle
position and options for throttle sensitivity too. Plus, it gives an option
for throttle switch in the program. I turned this ON, but am going to turn
it back off. This is the reason why. Several times when I let off the pedal
and pushed down on it again it hesitated and did nothing or really took off
fast. When the controller hesitated I could lift my foot off the pedal for
1/2 second and it would act like normal again. If I turn off this optional
throttle switch, then the problem goes away, then thats my solution.
Controller has a .5 sec delay in starting up when turned on. If I still have
this problem, then I plan on running a 2nd relay and use two 12 gauge wires
to power the 24V separate field. Right now I just have one 12V relay
powering the field with a separate 24V batteries. Without a separate 24V
battery pack, the motor won't even move and controller goes into current
overload for sometime and LEDs start to flash. It'll stop flashing after
some time of non use. This really doesn't apply to any real serial motor. I
mistakenly drove it for a few miles this way with just using a jumper like
e-volks shown. Well controller got so hot it went into current overload and
I could fill it reduce output power. I was able to go 15mph max with just a
jumper off 24V +. If I can fix that hesitation problem, then I'll be happy.
I did notice taking off in 2ng gear gave a very reduced torque reaction and
didn't really use much more power to take off. One thing I did was simply
follow their schematic exactly in the manual. For 24V power I just tapped
off the 24V battery part of the traction pack. Of course using a converter
is the correct way and is $100 more for it. I also used a 450 amp rectifier
diode as a Flyback diode over the motor's positive and negative. I think
this is very important to prevent controller over voltage burnout and more
so on generator's. It real simple to do, go from motor + and connect side of
diode that does not conduct, then go from motor's negative and connect side
that does conduct current. I had to wear gloves since the precharge resistor
I used of 400 ohm and 10 watts caused a little tickle when messing with
those cables. One thing to note is the main contactor closes when controller
is turned on and never is opened (disconnects) until controller is turned
off. I used a 24relay to control my contactor because I am using surplus 60V
coil Albright contactor. Plus, I didn't feel like to recoiling it to 24V. I
plan on driving it 25 miles today and will have more data.

Hi, yes I do have starting torque issues as even with a controller. I
searched for that thread, but couldn't find it.
On takeoff it can literally lift the motor and transmission up vertically
quite a bit and I see shifter on left side as far as it can move. I have
only driven it a few times around the block for a few miles at this point.
Today I added another relay in parallel for the field power. What I probably
need is their newer sepex controller KD84602, but then I'd have to research
sepex control versus shunt control and see if it is compatible. They list a
lot of versions, but lead time is like 2 months on most of 'em. I am going
to try driving it starting in 2nd gear tonight and see how it works if I
don't push hard on the throttle. Next, I will adjust the throttle
sensitivity and decrease it to see if this helps. Because of how I have it
mounted I have to remove headlight to plug programming cable. They have
throttle preset from 1k to 4k ohms. However one has to push too much to get
to 1k. I'll change it to 10% instead of 20% on starting out. This is more
like the ICE. I'll leave 4k max the same as I can only go to 4.6k ohms by
flooring it.

To me this suggests that you need to add some kind of torque strap to your =
motor mounting arraingement. Find a place on your adaptor or motor mount t=
hat you can tie securely to your frame to counter the effect of the startup=
torque.

[EVDL] Kelly Controllers

Hi all,

So, talk to me about Kelly Controllers.. Are many people here using
them yet? Have they been reliable? Any problems?

I'm looking at becoming an Australian reseller for them, their range
and pricing look good but I'm just concerned that they don't have much
of a track record yet (for better or worse)!

Re: [EVDL] Kelly Controllers

I didn't think regen worked on series motors? This ought to be really
interesting...

But even still, let us know how it works, I think we're all waiting to
see how it performs.

Re: [EVDL] kelly controllers

Send me the schematics you are using to hook it up. I had the same
issue and I may be able to help you get around that. Mine is working.
I did have the red light for awhile while we tracked down the issue. I
won't say until I am sure what I am thinking is the problem but I am
pretty sure I can help get around that.
