Any way to engage the master reset switch without handheld

Postby rdsabo » Mon Jun 24, 2013 11:18 pm

We are having issues with our BMS system. We would like to reset the system and wondering if we could accomplish this without a handheld programmer. We do have the Watchdog program operational so theoretically it should reset itself when errors occur, correct?

The LED display within the vehicle cab is displaying data that is incorrect so for now we have bypassed the BMS for the purposes of charging our cells up with a ElCon charger and monitoring this procedure with a voltmeter/amp meter.

Any suggestions from the experts as to what to do first?

Thanks!

Hello rdsabo, welcome to the BVS forum. Where in the world are you?

You will need to tell us a bit more about your vehicle setup to get any help. Is this the BMS that Peter Perkins designed, or a different one? What vehicle is it in? What kind of cells do you you use, and how many in series and parallel?

Post some more and we'll see what we can do.

Hi Tim

Thank you for the greetings. We are located in Whitehorse, Yukon Canada...aka "the land of the midnight sun"

Yes, this design was taken from Peter's schematic diagrams. We converted a Ford Ranger which has a battery bank of 32 lithium iron phosphate batteries and an AC induction motor. We have all cells connected in series.

I can provide any other information you may need.

Thanks!

Hi we need a lot more detail than that i'm afraid?

Based on my schematics ? Which ones?
Pics of your boards/system and video/led screen etc?
Video of what it is doing?
Details of the software you are using? Source code?
More detailed explanation of the problem.
