Tap Validation Tool for your Orion Jr-Junior BMS

 

This tool allows you to test the system once the system is hooked up. If the system is not hooked up properly and the Tap Validation Tool is not used it may damage your Orion BMS or Orion Jr.


CANdapter ($72)

CANDAPTER USER MANUAL

DRIVER.EXE

INSTALLATION GUIDE

UTILITY SUITE

§  Converts CAN BUS traffic to a USB serial interface

§  Comes with a small suite of software to allow data logging, monitoring and interaction.

§  Makes simple the job of translating and extracting information from a CANBUS to a computer for processing and analysis.

§  Communicates over a virtual serial port, making it operating system independent and very simple to write programs and applications

§  Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7 - Drivers compatible with 32-bit and 64-bit distribution

§  Almost all Linux distributions have the needed driver integrated into kernel and thus do not need any additional driver.

 

Torque Digital Touch Display

 

Torque is an application for Android tablets and smartphones that interfaces with OBD2 enabled devices (via bluetooth or USB) and provides visual feedback in the form of gauges and digital readouts of the various parameters and values provided. Due to the flexible OBD2 support of the Orion BMS, Torque works cleanly with the Orion BMS out of the box and many Orion BMS customers use this display.

 

Disclaimer: Ewert Energy Systems and Electric Car Company of Utah are not affiliated with Torque in any way nor do they guarantee support for Torque.  Torque is copyrighted by its owners.  Please contact the authors of Torque directly for support regarding this software.

 

Notable Features:

  • Integrates seamlessly with the Orion BMS for displaying parameters and viewing & clearing error codes.
  • Powerful touch-enabled interface provides easy-to-use display.
  • Entire interface is customizable (gauge type, gauge location, gauge look and feel, etc).
  • Works on smartphones, tablets and other Android enabled devices (device MUST have USB host or Bluetooth capabilities depending on which adapter is used).
  • Can be used to do data logging as well as live web-based performance streaming.

Required items to use Torque with the Orion BMS

1.   An OBD2 Connector. These are present in modern vehicles or areavailable for purchase ($29) for hardwiring into the Orion CANBUS cable.

2.   An OBD2 to Bluetooth Adapter ($19) Torque requires an external device to interpret the OBD2 data.

3.   A Bluetooth Touch Screen Display (7 inch $197, 8 inch $238, 10 inch $287 all options come with a 2 year Warranty, Industrial Strength Velcro, 5v 1A Cig Socket Charger, and 120V 15A wall charger/plug).  Install your display in a location shaded from the sun for both longevity of use and screen readability.

4.   The Torque App from Google Play. ($4.95 download it here)

 

Wiring the Bluetooth/USB OBD2 adapter to the Orion BMS

Torque connects to the Orion BMS using a bluetooth to OBD2 adapter  

(or a USB to OBD2-Not suggested seeing as you can connect the Bluetooth Adapter to the hardwired OBD2 Connector and most displays are not able to USB *HOST*).

General connection diagram

 

One of the CAN interfaces on the Orion BMS must be connected to the OBD2 connector that the OBD2 to Bluetooth (or USB) adapter is plugged into.  A minimum of 5 wires must be connected to the OBD2 connector to operate:

 

OBD2 Pin #

Connect to

6 – CAN High

Orion BMS CAN1 or CAN2 High

14 – CAN Low

Orion BMS CAN1 or CAN2 Low

4 – Chassis Ground

12v Ground

5 – Signal Ground

12v Ground

16 – Battery Voltage

+12V (power for adapter)

 

Full OBD2 Connector Pinout: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/On-board_diagnostics

 

The CAN network requires exactly 2 each 120 ohm termination resistors at each physical end of the CAN network.

 

Note: The baud-rate of the connected Orion BMS CANBUS interface must be either 250 Kbps or 500 Kbps to conform to OBD2 standards. This setting is available under “Communications Settings” in the BMS Profile section of the BMS utility.

 

Note: The OBD2 ECU ID may be changed from the default value if this ECU ID is integrated into a vehicle that already uses this ECU ID.  It is important that each ECU in the vehicle have a unique ECU ID.  This setting is available under “Communications Settings” in the BMS Profile section of the utility.

 

Configuring Torque

The adapter setup portion of Torque is dependent on what OBD2 adapter is being used. Please consult the official Torque documentation / support forum for assistance getting the adapter interface configured.

The next portion is adding the Orion BMS PIDs (viewable parameters such as battery voltage and current) to Torque. There are two different ways to do this.

 

Method 1 (Manual Entry – For Novice Users):

1.   Download the following PDF file: Orion BMS Torque Extended PIDs (PDF)

2.   Open Torque and go to “Settings” (usually by pressing the bottom left key [looks like an upside down box] on the phone / tablet and then selecting Settings).

3.   Scroll down in the settings list and click “Manage extra PIDs/Sensors”

4.   Press the Menu button again (looks like upside down box) and press “Add custom PID”

5.   Press “OK” to agree.

6.   Fill out the appropriate information from the List of OrionBMS Torque PIDs, starting with the first PID (or whichever ones are wanted / needed).

7.   Repeat steps 3 – 5 for all PIDs wanted / needed.

8.   Return to the Torque main screen by hitting the Back button (backwards arrow) several times.

9.   Press the “Realtime Information” button on the main screen to go to the gauges screen.

10.               Long press (press and hold) any area on the screen to bring up a list of options about adding / editing existing gauges. When adding a gauge, the PIDs added manually should be selectable as options.

11.               The gauges should be updating regularly at this point.

 

Method 2 (Automatic Entry – For Advanced Users):

Torque provides a secondary method for bulk loading multiple PIDs into memory by reading them in from a file.

1.   Download the following file to the Android device: Orion BMS Torque Extended PIDs (CSV)

2.   Install a File Manager application (Astro File Manager is commonly used).

3.   Open the File Manager and navigate to the home Torque folder (commonly this is ‘/mnt/sdcard/.torque’ OR ‘/.torque’.

4.   Copy the file downloaded above (“orionbms_pids.csv”) in to the ‘extendedpids’ folder (which should already exist).

5.   Exit the file manager and re-open Torque.

6.   Go to “Settings” and then scroll down to “Manage extra PIDs/Sensors”

7.   Press the Menu button on the device (looks like upside down box) and then press “Add predefined set”

8.   Select “orionbms_pids” to add them as a predefined PID list.

9.   Return to the Torque main screen by hitting the Back button (backwards arrow) several times.

10.               Press the “Realtime Information” button on the main screen to go to the gauges screen.

11.               Long press (press and hold) any area on the screen to bring up a list of options about adding / editing existing gauges. When adding a gauge, the PIDs added manually should be selectable as options.

12.               The gauges should be updating regularly at this point.
