Uploading Tritium Firmware

Sutho, I just tried that but same result - it waits for the controller then says erasing flash, then erase timed out. I tried uploading new driver controls software as well, but same result except that at one point I changed the wrong digit while trying to update the version number and the erase see...

Uploading Tritium Firmware

I think I had this issue too when I was first setting the controller up but I can use config, DCTest, etc fine now so I don't think that's the problem here.

I'm using windows 7.

Thanks for the thought though, I'll double check it to be sure.

Uploading Tritium Firmware

Plan B, no changes to starting torque just yet. I have a feeling that low speed torque-per-amp is pretty well optimized; the ws200 tuning options don't yield noticeable change at low speed. I can probably bump up the motor current limit a bit but I don't know if there would be any indication I've re...

Uploading Tritium Firmware

Any thoughts on the timeout issue? The bootloader tool, triFwLoad_1_04, says "erase timed out" when I press Erase/Prog. I'm just turning on the ws200/can network, plugging the computer into the bridge, then running triFwLoad. Am I missing some steps here? Maybe I'm supposed to press the reset button...

Uploading Tritium Firmware

Thanks for the quick help everyone, got make working. Anyone know how to find the hardware version, which I think I have to update in the encrypt file for everything to work? Also, any thoughts on uploading the files? I'll work on that problem more tomorrow too. PlanB, that pretty much sums it up, I...

Uploading Tritium Firmware

I've actually done that, but from what I can tell I still don't have "make" Maybe I'm calling it wrong? The readme says, "From a command prompt window (DOS box), and in your working directory, type "make" without the quotes" but that gives me this message: C:\TRI_Firmware_2012-04-24>make 'make' is n...

Uploading Tritium Firmware

Hi everyone, I have a Tritium WS200 and am having trouble uploading new firmware to the driver controls, and updating the WS200 firmware. I was hoping for a very basic explanation of a) how to upload files via CAN and b) how to compile new driver controls software and upload that. I'm sure James at ...

RX400H transaxle

Bummer, there seem to be plenty of these around though, so if you're willing to pay for the shipping I'm sure someone will send it. When I bought mine I just called a few places until I actually talked to someone on the phone who seemed reasonable. If you pay with credit card I imagine you have pret...

RX400H transaxle

Hello PlanB and everyone else, I have one of these motors so I thought I'd comment... I live the the US so the motor is easy to get, but a controller is much more difficult. The tritium controller is still the best option because if it's high voltage and their willingness to work with the DIY crowd....
