    You mean on that build? That's probably another thread, but there are some hotter new batteries I'd use, and a motor that I'd choose over an Emrax now, but I'm sure y'all know all about that stuff...

    Travis, what computer port is required for the IXXAT cable connection? Is it a standard USB 3.0? I am asking because I am learning that most new rugged tablets only have micro USB and micro HDMI ports. I am thinking that if the CAN-BUS data from the IXXAT cable can be converted to wifi, then I could conceivably connect to it with either a Windows10 or Android device, which would give me more options.

    IXXAT is a USB to CAN converter. Standard USB 2/3 port will work. Micro USB to USB will work.

    If you're going to do CAN, you could get a OBDII adapter (ELM327 or something similar), and put it in straight CAN mode. You'll have to write code, but you can talk CANopen to the Sevcon if you're doing that. It's NOT OBDII compliant.

    CANbus is the hardware layer (physical layer).
    CANopen, OBDII are both the software layer, protocol layer. OBDII is what cars talk, and CANopen is what a lot of industrial stuff talks. The Sevcon doesn't speak OBDII, but it does speak CANopen over the CANbus.

    Make sense?

    Also, I sell the IXXAT cables if you want to go that route.

    I found a very informative Masters thesis written by a fellow in Estonia. I have been leaning towards exactly what his thesis was written about for this project. For those who find this thread interesting and are looking for similar solutions for your project as well, I will include a link to the 72 page document below. It's a good read and has good references at the end of it. Thank you, Oliver Meus, for sharing your work and creating an open source dashboard protocol. I have much to learn and this thread will be going into dormant mode until I have developed something substantial to share.

    Has anyone had any luck using gauge drivers like the Autoblock AMP or the Zeva fuel gauge driver? With a nice gauge cluster, this could be pretty cool.

    Spaceweasel... Your internet Sherlock Holmesability is amazing! Those are interesting finds, kinda on the pricey side though. They look geared more for a car conversion. I wonder if they would work with mechanical type gauges that a lot of older motorcycles have. I'd bet
    those Hall type ammeters are more accurate than a shunt type used by Cycle Analyst. Now I'm wondering if a cheapo Harbor Freight multimeter with Hall sensor can be hacked, sacrificed and used.

    BTW,
    The EVIC, I've confirmed, works with the Sevcon. The Sevcon requires some programming changes, but I have that information.

    http://ai-hmi.com/evic_products/

    Let me know if interested, I can see about pricing and availability.

    They have a 4.2" coming out soon too. Right now just the 7". It's compatible with Sevcon and Orion BMS

    At $627 (a price I found recently) ...I don't think so! There is a more affordable solution... I just haven't found it yet!!

    Yeah, it's called a Clearview display for about 1/2 the cost

    The new EVIC 4.2" is looking to be closer to the cost of clearview. The clearview is being discontinued by Sevcon.

    I'll see how far I can get with Arduino. Its an uphill learning curve but I'm finding some good resources so far. I may consider the small version of EVIC if it will come with programming support at that price.
