- Installed high voltage (HV) fuse
- Ran +HV line from trunk to fuse
- Ran +HV line from fuse to breaker
- Ran -HV line from trunk to forward batteries
- Ran -HV line from shunt to controller
- Ran +HV line from breaker to contactor
- Re-routed signal wires away from HV cables
- Attached all signal wires for the Link10 monitor
- Attached throttle control wires to the Zilla controller
- Attached the RPM sensor wires to the Zilla
- Connected the hairball (Zilla's brain) to the Zilla controller
- Attached wires for heater to the battery
- Attached charger to the battery
Here's a shot of the breaker and the shunt to the right and above it. As I was running all the wires to those two, I realized that there was no safe way to get all those wires in place while the batteries on the right side of the picture were in place. So, I had to disassemble the pack in that box to get that work done.
Here's a shot of the fuse I installed today. That fuse can easily handle the 1000 amps I could draw from the battery pack. But it would blow quickly in the event of a dead short.
Here's the zilla controller at the bottom of the frame, and the hairball at the top. I think I've got all the components wired to it at this point. In fact, I think I'm ready to test the system and see if I can spin the wheels. But before I do, I think I'll go over the wiring of each item, just to make sure I haven't made any bone-headed mistakes.
