Alltrax DCX500 recommeded setting for D and D 63-49 motor
 
All,

can anyone please guide me in the right directions for controller settings for the DCX500 controller with a D and D 63-49 motor? I am finishing my cart sometime today and I left the "recommended" settings from D and D on my desk at work. I do have a feeling that these settings may be a bit conservative anyways. Here is what I am currently running with my 36V setup with my PDS 2005 fleet speed shunt stock motor: I am upgrading to 48V

Field map 4

Max output current: 100%

Under voltage: 24.0 volts

over voltage: 55.0 volts

Throttle up rate: 3

Throttle down rate: 3

Brake current: 65%

Top speed: 100%

High pedal disable: checked

Turbo: checked

1/2 speed reverse: checked

throttle sensor: ezgo its

Throttle response: custom.... I believe they recommended linear

I would appreciate a good starting point... I am running 23inch tires and a 6 inch lifted cart with long travel suspension and a backwards rear seat. I ride on dirt roads that are mostly flat here in Orlando. thanks

Field map 4 (required)

Max output current: 100% (recommended)

Under voltage: 24.0 volts (27.5v for 36v, 37.2v for 48v)

over voltage: 55.0 volts (just set for 60v)

Throttle up rate: 3 (subjective, test and see how you like take-off throttle)

Throttle down rate: 3 (double throttle up rate)

Brake current: 65% (subjective, 65 is good starting point)

Top speed: 100% (duh)

High pedal disable: checked (recommended)

Turbo: checked (recommended)

1/2 speed reverse: checked (subjective, do you want full throttle reverse or not)

throttle sensor: ezgo its (required)

Plug Brake: Set to OFF for regen braking.

Throttle up rate: 3 (subjective, test and see how you like take-off throttle)
It depends on tire height and gear ratio. If you have stock gears and stock height tire, 3 might be a bit much.
I had set mine to 2 so I could take off with spinning tire on grass and you have a higher torque motor than I do.

If you want to do wheelies, set it higher. :mrgreen:

Also, it depends of the Throttle Response curve selected. Linear is the most aggressive.

Throttle down rate: 3 (double throttle up rate)
This determines how soon the regen braking comes on when you lift your foot. The higher the number, the sooner the onset.

Brake current: 65% (subjective, 65 is good starting point)
You'll probably want to set it higher when you up the pack voltage.

Turbo: checked (recommended)
Great if you want/need another 1-3 MPH at top end, but generates a lot of motor heat and reduces range if used a lot.

D&D recommends turbo on for ES-63-49 motor.

Thanks, I wasn't aware of that, I was speaking in general terms.
