Display voltage while running
AttachmentSize
Image icon firmware.png61.34 KB

Hi, I'm running 19 Leaf modules with the latest Dugas firmware. There is no BMS (so far), so I'm a bit blind on a voltage monitoring. I balanced cells prior to installation and measured the remaining capacity. I set it aproximately in the Dugas VX1 configuration GUI. However, I still want to monitor a voltage while running a bike to see if I'm approaching cutoff. I know there is a combination that shows a current instead of the main clock, I somehow switched it on several times. Is there a way to see a voltage? I saw Liard's firmware can do that, but I'm not quite sure if it's compatible with Dugas charger and motor controller. Please, suggest.
And finally I've just realized I'm running Rev D instrument cluster, while there is a backup copy of Rev E instrument cluster FW. Can somebody please clarify a difference?
Thanks a lot.

Hold the left brake and toggle the kill switch to change the left display.
You can do this while riding or not....but do it quickly otherwise you will disable motor

Re: Display voltage while running

Very interesting, I usualy use the left handle but when the vectrix is stoping. I never use this when the VX is running, because kill switch in running I think could be danger for the motor controler,.
what about your opinion/recondation?

Re: Display voltage while running

seems, I'm still struggling.
While the "Go" state I hold left brake and quickly and flip kill switch to off and then back to on. This changes the left "clock" display to "c 00" which I would expect is a current display. This is what I noticed before by triggering this accidentally. If I do that again then display return to clock mode. How to switch it to a voltage?

The range in miles (or kilometers) at the bottom of the speedometer is the pack voltage even though it still says miles when you switch it. Current at the top in big characters and voltage at the bottom in small characters

Thanks! I expected to see that instead of a time and even didn't notice this change.

Re: Display voltage while running

I love this feature of the Degas software, but now I am curious what the speedometer is doing when I flip the Kill (Power) switch. It seems to move to about 40kph when I pull the brake leaver, yet there is no mention of this in the Vectrix manual. I don't this it's a Degas feature, it's always indicated something when I pull the brake when the kill switch is flipped.

Re: Display voltage while running

It seems you're referring to a throttle calibration routine.

Ah, yes, should have played.
