The Cycle Analyst has been our flagship product since we first introduced it as a DrainBrain device in the summer of 2006. This is a universal dashboard for ebikes and other EV systems, and has evolved to include many advanced feedback and control capabilities as well.
The V2.4 device is a comprehensive electric vehicle display showing your battery voltage, amp-hours, and all your speed and distance stats, and is suitable when you just want to see the performance of an EV without changing the behavior. The newer V3 Cycle Analyst has all the functionality of the V2.4 device and also lets you control your ebike via the Cycle Analyst, to enable pedalec modes with torque sensors, temperature monitoring with thermal rollback, advanced throttle controls etc.
The CA–DP model is tidiest if you are running a direct drive hub motor since it will pick up your wheel speed without any extra wires, while the CA–DPS model is necessary with most geared hubs or sensorless setups that don’t have a hall signal available.
If your controller does not have a 6-pin Cycle Analyst plug, then you will also need to get a suitable shunt resistor. The 1mOhm molded shunt is the most straightforward option and hooks up inline with your battery leads to provide a plug and play CA interface.
We have numerous spare parts and other accessories for the V3 CA devices in the CA Accessories section of our store.
