Hi Pir,Hi, I am new to electronics and this is my rought copy from my general understanding I need help becuase I will do the wiring based on this diagram
Weird, I am looking non stop on youtube to find explainations and google with no success... and I do not understand the the electronics shematics.. lolHi Pir,
Here is an example which may help. http://www.diyelectriccar.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2372
Also, the components like the controller and BMS and charger should come with wiring instructions. And there are books (and web sites?) which offer wiring examples. Other company web sites, like Curtis, will have manuals for controllers which you can view as examples. There is a current thread with F16b discussing wiring the Curtis.
But it seems each installation is somewhat different, so there is no one-size-fits-all schematic.
I took a few minutes on google and found this. http://www.ehow.com/facts_7430693_do-learn-schematics_.html I just spent a minute or two there, but it looks pretty basic and easy to use. Plus I saw about a 1000 other sites. And then you can always revert back in time and get a book on basic electricity and electronics. I admit, it is easier if you have had some formal education on the subject. But self learning shouldn't be that difficult.Weird, I am looking non stop on youtube to find explainations and google with no success... and I do not understand the the electronics shematics.. lol
thanks, I know the keyignition should go through a relay but I dont know how to plug a relay and I removed the breakerDrawings are great, but just a precaution for any newbies on the site, maybe put a title on the drawing itself that states something like "proposed wiring diagram, not complete, do not use" or something like that just to make sure someone doesn't copy an in progress diagram that could be unsafe or harmful.
If taken litteraly it looks like full pack voltage/current goes through your ignition switch, and an amp meter will have a shunt or hall effect sensor and not connect directly to pack voltage as shown, I also wonder why you have a breaker and a fuse in the + line. I can't imagine you being able to find a 500-1000A DC breaker rated for 150+ volts, I would stick with the fuse and an emergency disconnect.
Also I don't know if it was that charger but I've read that some don't like to be turned on without load, the way you have it that could happen. I would ask the manufacturer for recommended wiring.
And the motor is a Warp (not Wrap) 9, but keep working on it, I think drawings are great and a lot of people are visual learners and they would learn more from one drawing than reading this whole forum. Once you have a final version post it up with details of your goals/car/performance expectations for others to reference and use.
Thank you, I appreciate your feed back. I dont understand what you mean by cannot connect and disconnect the manzanita charger? it will be in the trunk of my car of course it will be always connected... Just not when driving???you cannot connect and disconnect the Manzanita charger under load. It will fail. I don't know why you feel like you need to disconnect/reconnect it. Hook it direct to the battery pack. and leave it connected. Just make sure you don't leave it plugged in as you drive off.
You need to do more research on your own about ammeters and voltmeters. You should get a basic book about electricity and figure out what they mean.
Do this, label your connections and research on ammeter and voltmeters. Voltmeters measure on the + and - terminal of the battery. Ammeter has a resistive shunt that is inline with the load. A meter is connected to each side of this load and measures the voltage across that shunt. You haven't wired either of them in any way correctly.
You're pretty far off actually. You have a relay in there and you should have a Main Contactor.
