Sevcon Gen 4 Support

We are to the point where we can offer professional Sevcon Gen 4 support.

We have invested over a year into the minutia of this.  I dont want to make it sound complicated (because we can simplify it for you) but working with Sevcon hardware really does require professional support unless you are in a position to tool up, learn the tools, and invest the time.

We have an OEM relationship with Sevcon.

We have up to date licensed copies of DVT.

We can load DLD files.

We can read, modify, and write DCF files.

We can help you to transition your existing system from a Size 4 controller over to a Size 6 controller (for significant performance gains).

We can support you with Sin/Cos encoders, UVW encoders, wiring and pin mapping, basic tuning, and some Dyno tuning where appropriate.

We have a line of custom harnesses built to or above OEM Automotive spec that (in combination with a DCF tuned to your hardware set) can make for a turn-key setup.

We can support any existing Zero Motorcycles gear as well as any equipment purchased from http://motenergy.com/.  We are working on supporting other existing motors like those found at Joby, Jozztek, and others.

We would like to support Boating applications, Kart applications, custom Motorcycle and Enclosed medium weight EV applications.  We are even starting to support some E-Flight applications (tho those require a higher level or rigor to assure air safety).

Currently we are working under the umbrella of an OEM as we develop a new Power Systems branch.  Until that venture is funded this is somewhat grass roots.

Hourly consultation is available – either over the phone or email.  Email is suggested as it tends to be more productive.  If you can clearly state what you have, where you are at, and where you want to go…  we can make suggestions as to other OEM’s and niche shops we work with.

We can suggest parts for safety and reliability (like throttles with interlocks) and inform you as to what you will need if you want to support yourself… or we can steer you toward one of our turn-key options

The key tools are:

  • Recent version of DVT
  • Proper galvanically isolated CAN programming device (IXXAT or Clone)
  • Professional 2 step crimpers and pins for Sevcon 35pin connector
  • Appropriate hall sensor and means to calibrate to motor
  • Harnessing and matching DCF

If you are looking for a turn-key solution…  or just looking for some help mastering what you already have, we are available.

At the moment we are working on a custom version of the ClearView iterface that will alleviate the need for DVT and an IXXAT such that customers can collect data and make minor changes without having to loop us in.

Feel free to reach out to us in the Contacts section.

All due respect to those who came before us like Ryan Biffard of Zero Motorcycles, the team at Thunderstruck-EV for their work supporting Sevcon, Steve at Jozztek in the UK for his EV expertise, and all the others who helped get us to where we are at.

Respect also to the companies where I have worked that first introduced me to Sevcon gear in their products – namely Zero Motorcycles and Electric Movement.

thanks,

-Patrick
