Australian importer of CA series cells?

Hi all,

Does anyone know if there is somebody in Australia importing and selling the new grey CA series cells from CALB yet?

Shirker, you expressed interest in the AC24LS, are you also still interested in the 1PV5135?

Who else is still in the group buy for the 1PV5135 at $1,666?

Hmm, shame, I was very keen on the $1,666 price and the AC24LS doesn't really do it for me.

Do you have part numbers or specs for any of this?

Also, no chargers?

LH Roadsters

Simon Hackett imported the first Roadster into Australia, and it was an LHD model. He managed to get a temporary permit to drive it in the Global Green Challenge in 2009 but it only lasted for the duration of that event. Due to the later availability of RHD models I don't believe he ever had it full...

Battery Specs for an EV Roadster

23kWh sounds reasonable for 120kms range, that's 190 Wh/km which is less efficient than the Tesla Roadster at 135 Wh/km, so certainly achievable in a light aerodynamic car. Though using Thunderskies, that pack will weigh around 250kg, which is a quarter of your weight budget. For AC (induction motor...

$10,000 for 6 motors. ($1,666 USD each).

Might try for $1,500 each ($9k) if we have interest for 6.
I would be interested at those prices.

He also has a proper dimension drawing, including pinout for the encoder+temperature sensor connector: 5135-4wsxx_drawing.jpg [Edited to add] I am quite interested in this motor but looking at the drawing, the 425mm of the motor body plus 107.1mm output shaft is still too long to fit in my engine ba...

Battery Weight

The consensus seems to be that not exceeding the vehicle's original GVM makes it a whole lot easier to pass inspections, because the chassis, brakes and steering have been designed to that figure. If you're going to overload the car you need to do some careful testing and/or engineering to ensure th...

Split pack battery charging...

All your LEDs appear to be backwards. (And should have series resistors, but I'm guessing that's implied.) Also, I'm not clear any more what purpose the diode on the key switch is achieving, since the configuration of the charge relay will prevent the half-pack contactor from closing if the charge p...

On another matter, I was just about to disassemble the steering column covers to remove the cruise control switching mechanism when the thought occurred to me that since it constitutes four switches, it could be used for other functions. Each switch action sends a pulse to the cruise control module...

weber, Drill holes in a base plate in 4-6 places that line up with blank spots in your PCB. Put nylon bolts through the holes and hold them in place with nuts. Turn the board so that the ends of the bolts are pointing up and rest your PCB on top. Voila, level PCB surface. (Cut the bolts short if it'...

You probably don't have it in your PATH, which is the list of directories that the command line looks for commands when you enter them.

The easiest way to install MinGW is probably to download and run "mingw-get-inst-YYYYMMDD.exe" from here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw/f ... -get-inst/

Dynamic braking resistor control

I was originally going to use a brake resistor setup but given how little it would be used I abandoned it. It doesn't appear to be in any production EVs either - nor the wavesculptor. It's kind of an industrial thing where ther is nowhere else to dump power - we have the battery pack which is seldo...

Dynamic braking resistor control

In my design I wish to include a load shedding circuit to keep regenerative braking behaviour predictable regardless of battery SoC. If I'm using a high power resistor (e.g. Danfoss or heater element) as a load, I'm wondering about the best way to control it. It seems to me that doing direct PWM con...

Gearbox stresses

We'll see Chris, I'm going to look at it in about 15 minutes and if I like it enough... ;)

I was under the impression that it was much easier (in most FWD cars) to keep the gearbox. Are you planning extensive mods to leave it out or is it much simpler in the CRX for some reason?

Gearbox stresses

Hmm you're right - the max output torque of the EM in 2nd gear is just less than the max output torque of the ICE in 1st, and although the ICE wouldn't develop that torque until 60kph I imagine the diff etc would have to be rated to handle it.
