Re: ENOVA 12v Battery Charger

Hi Peter - No, MB did actually make some Electric A class cars, but using the ZEBRA Sodium Nickel Chloride battery - there's a film on youtube somewhere. I almost went down that route myself, but all the used batteries were well beyond their sell-by date. Best price I've seen in UK is around £1 per ...

Re: ENOVA 12v Battery Charger

Hi Peter, You certainly have gone to town with the "ripping out" of parts. Interesting idea about ABS - are you sure it's not an MOT requirement, as it was in there as original ? I'm going to leave the car as near to standard as I can, without compromising the electric conversion. This is ...

Re: ENOVA 12v Battery Charger

Hi Peter, Did you find your bus pass? :D I'm still using the car atm although the thing died on me in the middle lane of M6 at rush hour - electrics I think - awaiting spares. So no, I haven't sorted with DVLA yet. I would be interested to see what they say. I said that when the car needed expensive...

Re: ENOVA 12v Battery Charger

Hi Peter, thanks for posting photos. Your setup is similar to mine, except that I bought a kit from Johannes. It comprises of a main board, 3 driver boards and sensors for the output cables, together with a wifi gadget for programming. From this I think that I have just got to assemble the boards an...

Re: ENOVA 12v Battery Charger

Hi Peter, thanks for your reply. I too have just received the Johannes Heuber kit and will be getting on with it shortly. My current task is making a new heat sink plate, half the length of the original, but using most of the inverter parts. The 12v charger has an interlock circuit (2 thin white wir...

ENOVA 12v Battery Charger

Hi Everyone, I was wondering if anyone has used the 12v charger built into the Inverter box of the 90kw Enova controller. Or is this just another item to be discarded ? The output (marked on the box as +12v) looks to be substantial using a 10mm insulated post. The input goes straight to the IGBT boa...

Re: Mennekes type 2 Charging Outlet

Thanks Tim, for that comprehensive answer. Just what I need to know. I'm only 'planning' and collecting 'bits' atm, but the project will be to convert my ageing (but still good) MB B200 CDI. I needed the information so that I can work out my charging method - 1, or 3 on-board chargers ( Possibly DIY...

Mennekes type 2 Charging Outlet

Hi everyone, This may have been covered here, but I can't find it, and I'm sorry if this sounds a really dumb question, but...... About 3 years ago I had one of the governments free Rolec charging outlets fitted to my wall. It has a Mennekes type 2 socket. What I want to know is: 1) do UK public cha...

Hyundai AC Motor / Controller - HELP Please

Hello Everyone, I'm fairly new to posting stuff, but this is a plea for help. I have a 25/90 kw Hyundai motor and its 90 kw controller ( from a Sainsbury's Transit delivery van). The motor looks very nice and runs smoothly by hand, but the controller (Enovo) has 3 rectangular 30 pin plugs of unknown...
