AZD AC24LS motor & TIM 600: anyone tried it?

Hi all - has anyone here tried running an Azure Dynamics AC24 motor with a MES-DEA TIM600 controller? Am thinking it looks possible, but have concerns that the aC24's encoder may be hard to configure for a TIM600. (Seems my AZD controller is on it's way out & looking at options). Many thanks in adva...

Home Wall Chargers?

Several vertical 15A outlets - but none screwed, unless you go to pendent style. (eg Clipsal ss15). Re timer: have personally done a hardwired timer set-up using current rated parts - but you'd need an electrician to construct/install that. You could also get a Jetcharge outlet with the timer option...

Conversion Budget Question

Hi there - having done several conversions (including a couple of AC vehicles) - my vote is ............ for the money it costs to do a good conversion, buy a Leaf! Great all-round family car. And its cheaper than the conversion. And it's way quicker to do. (And guess what I drive now :) Cheers Bryce

Level 2 EVSE

Hi there - having recently fitted an EVSE (Jetcharge) - have found my Leaf estimates half the time it did with the brick for a charge. (I do hasten to add that the car's charging time estimates do seem to be slightly more accurate that the usage/km remaining estimate made by its guess-o-meter!!!). C...

I want an EV, but what?

How about getting hold of a broken down Blade then? I know of several that would not take too long to fix for someone with an engineering/technical background.
Otherwise - a second hand imiev. (The Vic EV trial Leafs have all gone).

Hi there - I was following a thread on some North American Leafs being imported to a scandanavian country, and the research being done to change the satnav maps. However I seem to have lost the thread! If you find it - can you let me know. I think it was on http://www.leaftalk.co.uk/

Thanks Chris - its a second-hand one. (One of the ex Vic EV trial cars). NB Getz range is perfectly good as is with it's current battery pack - but doing 130km on my first charge in the Leaf without even trying to be economical is definitely a bonus! Re Getz - just the controller is likely kaput. (W...

Hi all - to paraphrase the annoying fossil car ad: I just bought a Leaf! Most impressive - especially as I have already driven well past the range of my Getz and still to need a charge. Is exceedingly nice to have the EV Grin back whilst I decide on whether the Getz needs brain surgery or a transpla...

Hmmm - I like the suggested shirt logo! Looks a little bit cluttered perhaps - but I'm no artist, so am a bit pressed to offer suggestions that would clean it up.

Keep up the good work!

Ex better place / Victoria EV trial 2010 i-MiEVs

Hi there - as far as I know, all the Vic EV trial iMiEV's were converted to be accepted by public charging stations. (i.e. add the pilot signal electronics). Was an early issue they identified as a potential blocker to EV adoption.

J1772 in conversions

Agree - for a conversion, simplest way is the single J1772 with smarts built into the socket. The smarts are only for the public charger - they have nothing to do with (and are in no way connected to) the car charging system. A normal lead with 3 pin plug on one end and J1772 on the other is good fo...
