Cuda E with RC drivetrain
RC Cycle Analyst Connections and Settings

Connecting the CA to the Castle Creations RC Controller (ESC):

Signal RC CA CC ESC
Gnd Black Brown
5 Volts Red Red
PWM Blue Orange

RC CA settings
The RC CA has a huge number of settings. This is what worked for me:

Using ebikes.ca hall effect throttle
Castle Creations HV160
Astro 3215

RC CA settings
Amps Limit 99amp
Low Volts limit 40v
Main Display Watts
Set Range Low (0.1A)
Averaging 5
Set RShunt 1.420 m0hm (Using potted shunt)
Volt Sense 30.95 V/V (adjust this value until CA voltage agrees with your high quality VOM.)
PSGain 0.08 V/kph
ISGain 200
AGain 60
VGain 800
ITerm Max 1.99mS
ITerm Min 1.21mS
Aux Thresh 1.20V
Vshutdown 10V

These settings worked for AJ, who has a resistive (potentiometer) throttle:

Settings for resistive throttle
HV160

RC CA settings
Amps Limit 130amp
Low Volts limit 39v
Main Display Watts
Set Range High (0.1A)

Volt Sense 31.10V/V
PSGain 0.08V/kph
ISGain 200
AGain 300
VGain 800
ITerm Max 2.00mS
ITerm Min 1.21mS
Aux Thresh 0.75V
Vshutdown 10V
