Re: jonescg's eCRX build thread

I think I'm up to like 5 years.
I have done stuff to the Handi since but not updated the thread.
Poor Handi.
Given how little I have left to do I really need to kick myself in the a$$ for not finishing it already.

Will you strip down your bike to put the parts in the CRX?

Re: Prelude conversion project - some questions

With mains coming out of the box small 240V Relays can be used to isolate the mains and the car is HV safe while charging.
Unless the charger can go in the battery box its best to have the contactor(s) on the HV lines as you have drawn.

Re: Prelude conversion project - some questions

Why not put the charger in the battery box before the main contactor?
Then you only have mains going in and HV coming out of the box.

Ah did you see on the front of the box in big writing it has "CAPACITOR MODULE*".
Note the little *.
Down the bottom it says "*capacitors not included" :lol:

Re: Heat Conductive Materials

There is also goop in a tube which might be more practical to apply.
AS1803-310ML
Farnzy has some about $40/tube 8497400.

Didn't look much so there maybe something better than this.

Re: Arvio 3.5kWh drop-in-battery-replacement supercapacitor on sale

What would help a lot is if Arvio, the importer, put a full pdf of the manuals for the 3.55 kWh and 7.1 kWh units online---ASAP. With a proper brief on what it is, what it contains and what it really does, in practice. But from what I understand Arvio are either in on the scam or have been duped by...

Re: Arvio 3.5kWh drop-in-battery-replacement supercapacitor on sale

So the control system is biased to keep the supercap array full, if possible, to ensure rapid discharge and recharge can occur at the level of the supercap array only, but much longer to fill the battery array as well. Sorry I already said Power IN = Power OUT Weather there is fancy control circuit...

Nah it's just continuous power is directly related to RPM.
I find most vehicles have changed into final drive by 80 unless under acceleration.
Either way since you have one of those motors with magnets in it the point is moot.
