TS hubmotor limitations
Does anyone know what limitations the hubmotor have? What i can read is that the motorcontroller fitted oem does supply about 30A at nominal 60V maximum, but i know people have been fitting kelly units etc to their ts1200r.
So does anyone have an idea of what would be safe voltage and amp maximum for the original hub motor?
I have just fitted a kelly controller and set the battery amps to 100, when speeding up I see amps over 100 amp.
Sabvoton 72150 controller and 21S24p battery 150A(88v x 150a = 13200W)
Original battery won't give enough power so it need to be changed or upgraded.
I noticed after 0,5 - 1 year of use that it would overheat in the motor. What it does is that the motor gets less and less effective and now I can only use high settings for 10-15 minutes that I used for 30 minutes before.
The problem is then that the motor can cut and be unable to work for 10-15 minutes up to 3 hours. After that it will work again for 10-15 minutes in high power mode. So if I want to drive for 30 minutes I have to go down to original or lower power settings, even lower than when bike and the motor was new as my motor has degraded.
In a way I have used it over its maximum and if you want longer and better life for your motor a good way is to put maximum speed to 70km/h or max amperage to maybe 75a battery current, original battery gives 35-40a max current at 17s. (Amps x S = W )
Sure. My battery is 6kw. The plastic around the battery parking can be removed. I have put 4x of big blocks each 4 or 5s and then in the lower part there is space for 1s or 2s. On the right side of the bike I have 2s as well. In the most bottom part there is my controller peeking out in the bottom front 1-2cm.
Performance wise that is wise. However it will not reach motorbike performance and continuous if the motor isn't changed to a new 600-900 dollar 17" qs273 motor.
I have changed my kelly controller for the sabvoton 72150 in combination with two 60v/35ah niu batteries. Did a quick test drive and i need to limit the output, batteries are not the issue anymore, output is much higher then the soco batteries.
I will install two current measurements one for each battery, this will be shown on the new dashboard, so i can monitor behaviour during driving.
