EVision Bench Test Setup
Brusa Shunt Measurement Board

Vehicle Speed

The Simovert provides a motor speed output, 5000Hz at 10000rpm. This can be adjusted by a configurable factor f_out_factor. The EVision & the Simovert share a ground, so this output can be directly connected to the EVision's speed input.

Current settings:

  • f_out_factor = 2
  • sensor count per rotation = 11
  • tyre diameter = 498mm

The above gives 7031 pulses per km.


The gearbox speedo output interferes with the body, so I need to drive the speedometer and odometer from the Simovert's output. I can either drive the speedo with a motor or replace it with an electronic one.

The EVision is connected to the pack by 3 wires, these need 50mA fuses. My options seem quite limited here. After quite a lot of searching I found the Bussman FWH-.500A6F which is UL Rated to 500V DC. At US$18 each I'm not so happy. Can be had cheaper at Online Components. (wrong current). Can probably use with a lower voltage pack.

10000 RPM Data Acquisition

Note, this was taken with the shunt incorrectly configured, double all the current readings
