WARNING .Red light temp also Battery and caNbus Appears too PLEASE anbody have any ideas ????????????

hi all .

can you help i have vectrix 8,500 miles to-date .
had new replacment batterys and temp sensor at yep 300 miles been running great since ..
yestaday noticed after tuning on ignition , red warninglight came on temp also battery aswell turned off and back on all good but after i came home.
i tryed to put scooter on cooldown / charge but scooter wouldn't have it it has decided it doesn,t want to be charged anymore all light came on stoped on for a wile and clock stoped mid flow and
then sterted up again but never tryed to charge even when pluged in caNbus come on also sayes range 0 all diles will not turn off ???????????? so i am asking for asistance please i apsulutlay love my vectrix and just want to ride her all the time ..

please please please any help is much aprecated to get her back on the road thanks kevin smith

The fack 6 stage display come to market, don't buy

6 stage display attention.jpg

The customers come to the shop and buy the fake display, finally, the problems comes with them.

Buy the real display, controller, motor from BTN

EV Global 36 Volt

I have an EV Global 36 Volt eBike almost Finished. I just got it up and running GREAT. I had a new set of Batteries (6 ~6 Volt Pack from LEVT) and I had it Chromed and added a New Throttle and had a bunch of other parts. I ordered the Largest front fender I can get and such. I need a chain Guard and a few other parts. So far it is a fun eBike and runs quite well.

Crystalyte 1000w-1500w Brushless Controllers

Does anyone know how to wire up the existing Currie Schwinn S-600 ON/Off switch and On-board charger port to a Crystalyte 1000w-1500w Brushless Controllers bought from The Super

Thanks, FrankLinsky

motor controller burned out

Hi all.
Does anybody know if there is a circuit diagram of the vectrix motor controller available anywhere?
Also a partial diagram would help.
The center stud of the three motor connection studs has come loose , overheated and caused the PCB to burn black around the stud.
Unfortunately it has also burned the small IC right next to the "CAP1 1" labeled muRata capacitor.
The IC that is missing looks exactly like the "U18" right next to the "CAP 2" labeled muRata.
The big Bussmann 125A fuse was not blown.
I think the damage was just caused by the temperature of the arcing stud and not actually by a electrical short circuit or blown FET inside the IGBT.
The 3 motor connector outputs on the IGBT do not measure a short in between them and also no short circuit to the negative and positive input connectors of the IGBT is present, I believe the IGBT module is OK.
My question is: what is the small IC that is burned away and where does it suppose to connect to?
Any help would be great.

e-max 2005 2000w dead batterys

I bought it 2 weeks ago I took out the 8 dead battery's and then hooked up 4 battery's in series for 48v and connect the red wires together jump it and it ran so I got them installed and now its all hooked up, but now the wheel doesn't turn, the gages and light all work.

Damaged panels replaced

Colin Webster has just helped me replace some panels on my Vectrix. I would be really stuck without the fantastic support I get from Colin ( It would be great if the powers that be at Vectrix similarly support folks like Colin.

Kelly HSR Series Motor Controller with Regen

Kelly provide regen controller for series wound motors.

1 General functions
(1)Extended fault detection and protection. Red LED flashing code indicates fault sources, and Green LED indicates normal operation. Controller will shut down in some fault conditions.
(2)Built-in current loop and over current protection.
(3)Cutting back current at low temperature and high temperature to protect battery and controller. The current will ramp down quickly if controller temperature is higher than 80ﹾC, and shutdown at 100ﹾC.
(4)Thermal overload detection and protection to safeguard the motor from over temperature (designed using Silicon temperature sensors KTY83-122).
(5)Monitoring battery voltage. It will stop driving if battery voltage is too high. It will cut back then stop driving if voltage is going too low.
(6)Monitoring voltage during regen. It will cut back current then cut off regen if voltage is going too high.
(7)Multifunctional and configurable 3 switch inputs: brake switch, reversing switch, throttle or forward switch. Default to active-low, customizable active-high.
(8)3 analog inputs, 0-5V: Default to throttle input, brake input and motor temperature input.
(9)Configurable and programmable with a host computer though RS232 or USB. Provide free GUI which can run on Windows XP/2000, Windows 7 and Vista(recommend using Kelly Standard USB To RS232 Converter).
(10)Configurable to limit max reverse speed to half of max forward speed.
(11)Configurable to limit max reverse current to half of max forward current.
(12)Configurable limit for motor current
(13)Capable of connecting to Kelly Ampmeter: positive to 5V power supply of controller, negative to J1-2.
(14)Provide power supply(5V) for hall sensors and other sensors.
(15)PWMable reverse alarm output.
(16)Main contactor driver. Cutting off the power if any fault is detected.
(17)Optional CAN Bus.
(18)Optional electronic unidirectional or bidirectional field drive for HSE controller.
(19)Customizable field current for HSE controller, less than 120A. Field driving capability is equivalent to armature for HSR controller.
