The Tong Sheng TSDZ2B is a little powerhouse of a mid-drive motor. Very compact and light, it features a torque sensing bottom bracket for smooth power delivery. The TSDZ2B is the latest generation of the motor, incorporating a new double clutch design.
Our TSDZ2B kits kits are based on the factory 48V version. They come complete with the mid-drive motor assembly, integrated controller, flywheel and 42T chainring attached to an internal torque sensing bottom bracket. The kit includes square taper crank arms, speed sensor and wiring harness.
We then replace the factory firmware and pre-install Open Source Firmware (OSF) v20.1C.2. We currently offer two versions. The basic version includes the VLCD5 LED B&W display with no throttle or brake sensors. We also offer an upgraded version that includes a color APT 860c display (also with compatible firmware pre-installed), a Bafang compatible wiring harness, throttle and cable pull brake levers with cut-off sensors.
The firmware modification allows for a wide range of adjustibility not possible in the factory units. It can be configured for 52V systems. The firmware also offers users the ability to calibrate the torque sensor for improved response.
Use At Your Own Risk - It is important to note that the modifications required in hardware and firmware to install the OSF void the factory warranty. Buyers must read the documentation thoroughly, gain an understanding of function, constraints and limitation of the system and take responstibility for configuring the motor properly. The OSF provides improved performance, additional functionality and greater adjustability but improper configuration can cause damage to TSDZ2B motor, gears, controller and/or battery.
By purchasing this unit, you acknowledge you are doing so at your own risk.
Please allow 3-5 days for hardware and firmware modifications prior to shipping.
