Several people have been asking me lately how to use the revolt 500amp control board with a hall effect throttle pedal. The procedure is simple. First you need some custom software (thanks Paul!) that lets the micro use the full 0-5v input of the adc. This also allows for the throttle range and error limits to be set using RTD.

Next the hardware. Following the attached photo , remove R10 and replace R8 and D1 with wire links. Pin 5 now outputs a +5v supply for the pedal and pin 4 is now the input from the pedal. Ground can be connected to pin 2. Just a case of disconnecting the traction supply and using RTD to setup the range. My E46 bmw pedal has been running just fine the last 9 months.

Now, Cole, when you shift the gear and that little needle on the ammeter goes into the red and reads 2000 Amps, that's bad.
