low voltage setting

6 years 4 months ago #29529183 by burgerman
Can I use the roboteq low voltage setting to ONLY flash the status light, or will it disable drive automatically?

I want it to tell me the battery is low, but do nothing else. I have it set up to do this, but have not tested this to find out yet.

Its not clear that it will do this.

If you are referring to the undervoltage parameter, that is the setting that you use for telling the controller when to detect an undervoltage situation. When that triggers, the undervoltage flag comes up and you will no longer get a motor output.

You can write a script that can utilize a digital output that turns on a led externally that can do the same thing.

You query the battery voltage, and when it reaches a specified value, you enable the digital output for the light to turn on. Refer to the usermanual sections 15 and 16 for scripting references and commands.

Thanks. I already have a script that does this, and only measures OFF LOAD battery volts, and averages over time to give an accurate state of charge, but was trying to avoid a major re-wiring episode... Its a shame it wont just flash the status light on my dash, and then let me decide to stop. Adding an option in "action" would be useful.
