I am pulling my hair out but not going to give up -

I have a 3.3 KW charger that needs to receive can signals - below is the information I received from https://www.elconchargers.com/index.html


The charger expects every second to receive a CAN message from the BMS with CAN ID 1806E5F4 and 8 data bytes with voltage and current required. For example 98V and 16A would be 980 = 03D4 hex and 0160 = 00A0 hex so the 8 data bytes would be 03D4 00A0 0000 0000. If the charger does not receive a valid CAN message in 5 seconds, it stops charging with a green blinking LED. It starts charging again when it gets a valid CAN message with a red blinking LED.

MY QUESTION - I want the setting to be for 145 volt max and 10 amp but I am confused about how and why or whn you need to add the zero like this guy did ?

Why did he add 0000 0000 to the end -

so would 10 amps be 0100 ? would 145 be 145 or 1450?

RECOMMEND THAT YOU GET AN ELCON CHARGER BUILT AFTER JULY 2011,*whose CAN module is marked "CAN201107

CANbus adaptor $105
https://www.electricmotorsport.com/ev-parts/chargers/elcon-canbus-interface-factory-installed-only-for-elcon-chargers.html
Compatible BMS controllers:
Emus
Orion
Elithion
EPS

EVTV Tesla Battery Module does CANbus control
https://www.diyelectriccar.com/forums/showthread.php?p=1051809

With Orion, can use J1772 control to drive the Elcon via CAN from public EVSEs

interface specsheet can be found in the Elcon thread at DIY

Why are you starting another thread on the same subject? Put everything in one thread if you expect anyone to give you some help.

So..... 10 amps would be 100 = 0064 hex

as for the last four I believe 0000 means charge and 1000 means don't charge
