Arrow T30: " Volts Too High!"

Howdy folks,

can somebody please tell me what's going on with my T30 when I'm cycling 3000HV's? It charges just fine (1 peak 5A db 0.04V) and then it refuses to start discharging by himself... it only discharges if I start the discharge by hand (I loose the peak voltage and IR info though), which is kind of contrary to the purpose of having an "automatic" cycling feature...

Could it be that my HV's have soooo much voltage at the end of the charge? That's what I started suspecting... I changed my settings to 2 peaks, 0.02 and 0.01, with a 200s delay between both, a mean to let the voltage settle down a bit before discharging, ssince you can't set up the time between the last peak and discharge on the T30... and then it cycles properly. But I still find this solution unsatisfying.

It cycles my GP3300 and 3000UMH just fine... it's just an issue when cycling the HV's.

Anybody ever had that problem?

Thanks fot your feedback,
Later

Paul

You are correct! the voltage of the pack at the start of discharge is too high. Can't remember what that level is...but that is where your error is coming from. CE changed the software during the T35BL to account for this. The first batch of T35 had the same problem too.

I think if you change the number of cells in the system from 6 to 7 it should be ok. At least it will provide a work around.
