Has anybody found a way yet to get the BDI / spyglass to recognise regen as a charge - this is a big oversite / flaw in the Curtis system , My appologese if this has been covered but i can't find any reference.

If the battery has accepted some charge during regen and the BDI shows the state of charge of the battery... then I don't really understand your point.

BDI.
Quote:
How does the instrument measure the discharge of the battery?
The instrument measures the Voltage under Load below a ‘reference”. As the vehicle is operated, the load on the battery causes the voltage to drop below this reference level. The gage will accumulate the time the voltage is below the reference. When the voltage is below the reference for a sufficient period of time, the gage will reset its timer, lower it’s reference, and indicate a lower state-of-charge. This process is repeated until the gage reaches “empty”. If the load is removed from the battery, the voltage will rise above the reference, the timer will stop, and the gage will continue to indicate the current state-of-charge. This technique of voltage-time integration to calculate the battery state-of-charge is far more accurate than using a simple voltmeter

I believe they already account for that, as they integrate voltage over time. If you recall in your EE classes, when you do that, the area under the curve is current, whether it be positive or negative. You would have to regen continuously down a mountain to see any real sustainable charge to the battery, considering the size of the battery pack.

Hello to All Buggies Gone Wild Members
I'm currently working on a couple Curtis 1297 Drives. I would greatly appreciated if someone could provide me with the 1314 software. My email is: fc4life_2005@yahoo.com

If by any chance someone could provide link to software or via email for Combiac1 Zapi DC Inverter

There are 2 links in the latter 1/2 of this thread that should still work.
Programming Curtis Controller one is on that page...search for the other.

. . . no matter what I try, I keep getting the "can't communicate" type error e0023 . . . I have the CH340 USB/Serial adapter . . computer recognizes the adapter and windows7 dl the driver for it . . I just can't get the 1314 software to talk to the 1510A-5250 controller . . the db9/molex ohms out correctly for pin out connections . . I have seen others have had success with their 5250/5251 controllers . . . I have even swapped the tx/rx connections back and forth to make sure . . . I have even tried running the 1314 software in Windows XP (SP3) mode . . . am I missing something?
