FINISHING THE NEGATIVE CONTACTOR, SHUNT, AND FUSE

Saturday morning, work continued on the negative side contactor, shunt, and fuse mounting, and the bus bars were added. Then the plate was mounted on the end of the battery. Plexiglas covers will be added to the top of the battery module and to the contactor, shunt, and fuse once the battery connections are made up.


COMPONENTS MOUNTED

The battery module has set for over a month now, so reading were taken to see where the voltages settled to. The lowest wa 2.691 volts and the highest was 2.897. Jack Rickard of EVTV has stated that he is not bottom balancing them to 3 volts but from the looks of the graph below, I should be able to charge all of the cells to 2.897 and get them to stay pretty close to that voltage.



Anyway, it's off to a pet event with my wife, son, and his fiance,  not by choice but to keep the wife happy. Our Yorkie will be happy also.



Thanks for stopping by,

Randy
