Well, if I want to control ABC, all I usually do is hit the first regen click... usually gives me between -0.4 and 2.7 amps charge... ie pretty much nothing, effectively blocking ABC. I personally don't want an extra click in assist as I use max assist too frequently.

Maybe you could just have it default to calling for low regen (first regen click) in battery nurse mode?

Good point I'll leave it as it is for the minute.

I might try shortening the time for the button presses.
That will mean you can select max regen/assist twice as quickly.

So perhaps a
Short press is < 0.5S
Medium press is >0.5 < 2.5S
Long press is >2.5 < 10S

Will wait for some feedback from the other users.

I think the useful thing about the battery protect limits now is you can activate one without the other.
So by imposing the assist limit and retaining the normal regen the battery will run at a higher soc because assist events won't bleed off so much capacity. We can tweak the actual values for these limits as we go. It might be better to limit assist to a very low number like 6A for a weak battery we shall have to see.

We need an HCH1 volunteer with a weak battery that throws codes to helps us out here

Hi Retepsnikrep, I would just like to introduce myself and i'd also like to congratulate you on the wonderful work you've been doing this year on the HCH1.
Myself and my Partner have just purchased an HCH1 last month and we will be looking to purchase the OBDIIC&C in the near future.
I would also like to offer my Knowledge if it would help in any way.

Welcome Dave what knowledge do you have to offer?

Remember the OBDIIC&C is a seperate device to the IMAC&C.

OBDIIC&C provides detailed vehicle information and some useful tweaks/controls.
IMAC&C provides manual control of IMA.

Hi I've been in the motor trade a total of 23 years now, I've had a lots of training from Honda in general but when the gen1 insight came out way back in 99 I had a 2 week intensive course which made me an SME (Subject Matter Expert) for the insight, I had similar training for the Gen1 civic. I worked within a Honda dealership for 11years as a Master tech, now I'm "off the tools" working for dealer technical support for another manufacturer.
I'm also a certified IT technician, CompTIA and Microsoft.
Thanks for clarifying the differences between IMAC&C and the OBDIIC&C
So if I can help in anyway let me know.
I also have 03/ 04/ 05/ Manuals for the HCH1 and the HCH2 06> on CD
I will say though that I'm no wizard with raw code But i do have a friend of a friend who is a programmer within the auto industry.

Happy Xmas
Price drop!

Please confirm if this applies to UK buyers as well? If then you are my Santa!

I shall make payment once you confirm the GBP price (95 = $150) ?

The UK/EU IMAC&C Price is 35 and 100 respectively. Sorry for not making that clear earlier.
Parts and postage are more expensive here

When paying me via paypal you must pay the paypal fees so I receive the full amount.


Dave could you e-mail or send me the HCH1 and HCH2 manual pdf's or upload them to a link i can download them from?

Thanks

Bah, you should just do what every electronics company does:

Price:
$150 US

or

150 GBP

That way it's totally fair!

Default Software version V07

The attached code has the short button press reduced to a max of 0.5 seconds in length.

If you press and hold any button longer than 0.5 seconds but less than 4 seconds it will be registered as a medium press.

If you keep it pressed for longer than 4 seconds but less than 8 seconds it will be registered as a long press.

This makes it quicker to jump to max assist/regen with a press longer than 0.5s.

However if you like the buttons as they are just stay with the prev code.

Also corrected a minor non critical code error.

Password as notified.

Sounds great, I'll flash it... probably tomorrow morning before I leave for work

I wonder what the lifetime count of button mashes I've racked up on this thing is. The little button caps started out with pretty distinct "edges" on them, and they're a lot more rounded now. I bet I probably hit the buttons a couple hundred times each commute.
