I ended up with an electric scooter that was missing batteries, controller and charger and I can't find out much information about it. I need to find the controller, wiring diagram and the battery/charger. I find some information on the internet, but apparently, this came from Italy and all the information is in Italian. Can anyone tell me where I need to go? The only information on the bike is it's a "Celco Profil Cip 025"
Thanks for the quick reply. As for the first step - the scooter doesn't have any batteries and it's a 24 V system. There's a pic of a similar scooter to show the size and placement of the batter. I have attached a few pictures of the wiring of the scooter. I hope that there's enough detail on the picture.
I did pull some information from the internet;
Motor - Celco Profil SE Type CBMK1 DC with permanent magnets, 4-pole 24 V (with carbon brushes). The picture shows 900W.
Regulator - Electronic
Let me know if any other pictures will help.
A controller such as our item # SPD-241200 would work with that scooter and would fit and wire right in where the old controller was removed from. I would install a new throttle with the new controller so you know that the new throttle and controller are compatible with each other.
SPD-241200 is showing out of stock right now however we just received an order of new controllers so it will be back in stock as soon as we locate the box that they are in.
Here is how SPD-241200 would wire to the scooter.
I will let you know when these controllers are back in stock. Please let us know if you have any questions.
Thanks, that helps a lot!
While I'm waiting for you to find the "right box" there remains two more questions:
1. What kindsize of battery would you recommend, and
2. I don't have a battery charger either, so what do you recommend there?
Ok, my list of stuff to buy is getting bigger, but that's fine! I just didn't know what I needed to get. But one more quesion. From the picture, can you tell how to hook up the wiring so I can recharge the battery without having to remove the existing wiring from normal operation? Thanks
I can not tell from the photos how the charger was wired into the system. On some older model electric scooters the battery charger was permanently mounted inside of the scooter (inboard) and the scooter was plugged into the wall to recharge it. The current trend with electric scooters is to have the charger outside of the scooter (outboard) and plug the charger into the scooter instead of the scooter into the wall. This keeps high Voltage of the mains power from ever being attached to the scooter for safety reasons.
I am not sure however I might be seeing a battery charger in front of the motor. I definitely see an aluminum heat sink there but do not know if it is the battery charger.
With an outboard battery charger a charger port is mounted to a panel of the scooter and its leads are connected to the controller, or directly to the battery pack.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
