Re: [EVDL] Failed DC Power Systems Controller 144V 400A (1200 shortterm) last fixed i

Hi David,

According to the Evalbum this is your Daihatsu with 46 cell
Thunder Sky + parallel AGM pack? Sweet range of 80 miles!
You say that it is a 144V controller, but as far as I know
the Raptor was a 156V controller? I know, that is pushing it
and the degrading caps will likely cause an increasing strain
on the transistors - probably the reason they let the smoke out.
I have bought a new set of caps to replace all (and then some)
in the Raptor 600 that I have sitting on the shelf.
If you don't plan on fixing it then I might be interested ;-)

Serious though, I think it still makes sense to fix it if the
shipping and the price Peter asks is reasonable and not in
the same order as a new controller...

Success!

Subject: [EVDL] Failed DC Power Systems Controller 144V 400A (1200
shortterm) last fixed in 2000.

Yesterday I was at our country estate about to return to Melbourne in my
EV (100ks away) and set off about 10 metres & the power failed. The
controller had failed, not violently but there was a whiff of burnt
Mosfet in the air. When you consider that I have been as much as 800 ks
away from home in this car I was very lucky. The luck continued in that
I keep a spare car there also , an Insight & that is how I got home. The
questions I have for the list is 1. Is it worth fixing? 2. If so who
can repair it? 3. If not what is the commended reliable replacement? Who
is agent or address to buy. David Sharpe
