Re: [EVDL] potbox reliability questions

>"1) How many miles have EVers been getting out of them before needing to
replace?" I replaced my PB6 after about 8 months with a Hall Effect
throttle. <

There are a few factors to the PB6 reliability , a return spring that pulls
the throttle arm off to the side doesn't help , having it open or near
gassing batteries ( not in a water tight box) and the outside humidity , I
would say 1 out of 5 go bad in 2 years here in Florida.

How dose this work with the controllers that take a 0 to 5k input ? Any web
site that is selling them?

My Curtis 1238-7501 controller will work with a pot or a 0-5V signal from a
Hall throttle. Just have to tell it the value of the Throttle_Type
parameter. The first is Throttle_Type 3, second is Throttle_Type 2.

"Any web site that is selling them?"

Sure, one of the regulars here sells a bolt in replacement for a PB6:

Scroll down to row 5, center.
