Thanks for sharing that.
This is the most useful that I have seen... that doesn't mean much, but it might help:If someone knows of a good link to Soul pack info elsewhere let me know.
Wow, this is a really neat build! I'm looking at using one of these Kia Soul packs to use in my 2000 Ford Ranger EV. So far, your project is the only one I've been able to find that has used a Soul EV pack...Depending on what you want to do, you can just use Torque Pro. You can monitor all variables including individual cell voltages, pack temperatures, current, SOC etc. If you need to actually work with the data, you need to be able to generate multi-frame OBDII messages. We did that in our datalogger. It involves sending a CAN query string, waiting for a response, sending an ACK, then receiving and parsing 62 bytes of data. I can supply some sample code if you want.
If you want to utilize the onboard charger, we have some recorded CAN traffic that you can replay in an endless loop that will fool the charger into starting up. I can also send that to you if you want.
Yes! Thanks.I thought everybody might be interested in an update.
I'm only taking a somewhat informed guess from reading their website, but if you are referring to the "Boost 50" product, this is for an intact Model 3 rather than DIY use of Model 3 components - it would work by intercepting messages between components and replacing them with faked messages that omit the information that stock system uses to limit power to protect the battery. The base controller for DIY use probably allows the same higher power level and unrestricted regen, not caring if you fry the battery. But you should check with Ingenext for the real answer.The website isn't clear but it sounds like if you want control over regen and maximum motor power you need to use a model 3 battery pack as well. Is that true?
