Re: Old BMS Software Thread

Hi Greg, Thanks for the reply. Sadly being mechanically biased and with no programming experience at all makes it a very steep learning curve. I do like your newer system and design. Is there any way of getting an arduino mega to communicate with the original slave boards, so like a hybrid, using yo...

Re: Old BMS Software Thread

I think I need to get hold of a pic programmer and suck out the program that's in the slave just to make sure I understand what the commands are. On the software version I have opened in this thread v10 beta software had 22 commands, whereas when I access the pics on the pcb via the switch the softw...

Re: Old BMS Software Thread

Hi Isaac, I have opened the txt file of v10 slave software, and see the following command Command 05 = Decrease Load CutIn Voltage by 10mv So, could the slaves be programmed on the fly and let's say the cut in load voltage to start to drain charge is set at 3.65v, I'd I sent a command 05 then the lo...

Re: Old BMS Software Thread

Ok gents, Now got the switch all sorted and can communicate to the slaves via the switch. I've set the clave for 1 cell only at the moment for testing, rigged up 1 cell and all seems to be working ok. The slave software version is v10. I have searched and read the software thread for the v10 to see ...

Re: Old BMS Software Thread

Ok, learning,
U= up
D= down

Etc.... So, am getting there, just need confirmation the switch is wired correctly to the master pcb, it's soldered directly on the switch pcb so it's only the master pcb side
Still working on it though
Thanks.

Re: Old BMS Software Thread

Hi Martin, Thanks for the reply. The switch I have a a single push button, it has 3 wires coming off the small pcb (about 1" square) that the switch is mounted to along with resistors. On videos I have viewed on YouTube from Peter Perkins YouTube site, I see the master pcb and the J9 connector ...

I only intend using 1 16 cell slave board, got from Greg but of course this kit was being used by Greg in his ev. So, I need to set up the bms for only 16 cells, and I have no idea how t...
