After spending days looking at posts about every topic possible, I have a better idea of how to build my first esk8. The only subject I need help on is the wiring.
So in order to get my head around that topic, I first created a simple wiring diagram: Nothing complex. I’m planning on using 2 5S batteries with a VESC.
Then, I looked at how to charge batteries, and that’s where it became a bit more complex. If I understand correctly, I either need to buy a battery charger like that thing (https://hobbyking.com/en_us/imax-b6-50w-5a-charger-discharger-1-6-cells-genuine.html) or go the hardest way and setup a BMS and buy a cheap 37V charger to plug-in. Why not ? Let’s try and do that.
So I looked around and tried to build the next 2 diagrams.
First one is with a BMS for charge and discharge:
The second one is for charge only:
Are those even OK ? Have I made any mistake ? It’s actually quite hard to find proper information as there’s a ton out there, but I think I got it right.
I’d be happy to fix those diagrams if I made any mistake. As there’s no post about wiring in the FAQ, I was thinking that maybe my post could go in there if it’s any good. My first goal is to learn how to properly wire my setup, but I’m also happy to help any beginners out there. I can also create other diagrams for popular setup if you think it could be of any use (like a dual motor setup for instance).
