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.
- 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 http://jaycar.co.nz/productView.asp?ID=SZ2014 with a lower voltage pack.
