Re: RETROFIT SOUND GENERATOR FOR EV?

I used a chip from a R/C truck, and hooked it up to a marine speaker.

I should add , I havent actually used it the sound thing . I prefer the silence , Its just a novelty thus far.

Re: LandRover DIY

Hey Don, I am 49 km from Yarrawonga (shortest back road route). You could recharge at 15 Amps (maybe 32 Amps). You could drive your 4wd up my track and be the first electric vehicle to climb Mount Bruno. My Nissan LEAF is not quite up to it. Sorry for late reply, my account has been broken ,( well ...

'Unsealed 4x4' on my conversion

Well written article in Unsealed 4x4 Magazine on my conversion. Appear to have made an impression on one non-EV aware Journo . Hopefully thought provoking to a diesel centric demographic. http://unsealed4x4.com.au/u4x4/issue056/?utm_source=ActiveCampaign&utm_medium=email&utm_content=New+Issue%3A+201...

Hi goingbush I am looking at using same charging setup, can you tell me where you sourced your 3.3 TC charger and what model you went with and were there any issues communicating with the zeva BMS? and did you end up using the AVC2 module? any issues with that? Sorry for late reply, my account was ...

There are no smarts in the car, The back of the J1772 simply connects to the 3.3Kw TC Charger , with a 240V Relay on the AC side to tell the BMS when the charge...

Re: Plugshare - outlet types

Is a "Wall outlet 3112 " a 3 pin Australian GPO style socket ? I have installed a J1772 socket in my EV conversion. My charge cord is a J1772 with a regular 3 pin 15A plug on the other end to suit the 15A outlet in my shed. The closest public charge points (within battery range ) to me are listed as...

Re: Arduino BMS with unlimited everything

I ended up using Zeva V3 BMS, it fills the ticket with all the points listed above , and its a LOT more compact with its SMD than my Adruino & Through the hole components could ever hope to be. The Processor & Programming language pretty much the same as Arduino anyway.
