BATTERY CHARGING HISTORY
Check the charging information of your battery.
Motor Current affects the torque of the motor. It is most noticeable at a lower speed.
Sport & Eco Mode
You can set the parameters in Sport or Eco Mode, according to the mode you have chosen by pressing the mode button on your bike`s handlebar.
The estimated power according to the current Controller settings.
Battery Current affects the maximum power. It also affects torque, which is most noticeable at medium and higher speeds.
The Controller supports the regen from the original SurRon brake signal and the regen from the throttle release. By moving either slider, set the amount of the regenerated current according to your preferences. Both regen types can be activated simultaneously. In case you use Thumb Regen, use the slider to set desired value.
TC500 controller is compatible with:
-stock Surron Light Bee/Segway X260 battery,
-bypassed stock Battery,
-custom 60V battery, and
-72V custom battery.
Select the battery you use and the Controller will set the minimal and maximal voltage to the optimal values. In case you`d like to customize the settings, choose CUSTOM in the Battery menu and customize the values to your preferences. The selected Battery Type affects the limits that can be set within the Application.
Minimal and maximal voltages are set automatically, according to the battery type you choose from the menu above. You can also customize the voltage values for each Battery Type, but we recommend you use the controller within the limits of preset values. Customize the settings carefully, while setting the “Min Voltage” too low can cause the battery to over-discharge. When reaching the "Voltage cutoff value", the power will be gradually reduced. Once the "Voltage cutoff value" is reached, the motor will stop and a UNDERVOLTAGE error will be displayed on the 1st screen of the App.
Max Voltage affects the regen. If the voltage of the battery is between the "Voltage limit start" value and the "Voltage cutoff" value, the regen is reduced. If the voltage of the battery is above the "Voltage cutoff", the regen is automatically disabled. If the battery voltage is above 90V, the "Overvoltage error" is displayed and the bike stops.
MOTOR TEMPERATURE CUTOFF
Set the max temperature at which you would like for the Controller to limit the power of the motor. The controller will gradually limit the power before reaching the max motor temperature, which is indicated at the bottom of the screen. Set the motor temperature to the red temperature values at your own risk.
KICKSTAND & CRASH SENSOR
TC500 Controller is compatible with stock SurRon Kickstand and Crash sensors. You can simply turn them on and off through the App. In case the Kickstand is ON and the kickstand is lowered, the motor will not run. The same, in case the Crash Sensor is ON, and you fall, the motor will turn off.
Follow the instructions in the Throttle Calibration window.
-OFF: The mode button on the bike is disabled. Your bike will remain in the SPORT MODE
-BUTTON: You can switch between ECO and SPORT modes with the mode button on the bike
-TORP DISPLAY: Switch between the ECO and SPORT modes using the TORP DISPLAY.
Set the maximum speed limit. In case you choose ∞your speed is not limited.
This option will increase the top speed of your bike, but it comes with its own set of advantages and disadvantages:
-Advantages: more speed, more torque on high speed
-Disadvantages: less range, increased motor temperature. We recommend setting the current to below 50 A to minimize potential drawbacks.
Set the throttle response according to your preferences and calibrate the throttle.
Use the slider to adjust the throttle response. Slide the slider right, for a more aggressive throttle response.
Slide the slider and adjust the throttle input and output values, which affect the throttle behavior.
-Slide right for the Degressive Throttle curve: As you increase the throttle, the power output grows faster. This means the bike responds more quickly even when a little throttle is used. This setting is recommended for high-powered trial rides and jumps.
-0% for a Linear Throttle Curve: This type of curve is simple and provides a predictable throttle response.
-Slide Left for the Exponential Throttle curve: Choose this setting for better control and sensitivity at high throttle levels, while keeping a gentle power delivery at low throttle levels. It offers precise control with a small throttle and strong power boosts at the higher throttle. This setting avoids sudden power jumps, making the bike easier to handle. It's perfect for beginners.
BRAKE LEVER RESPONSE
Adjust the brake lever regen response. Slide the slider to the right for a smoother regen response.
Set the range of the throttle twist that will be ignored by the controller.
BRAKE LEVER PRIRITY
By enabling this feature the brake (sensor) will take priority over the throttle (default stock SurRon behavior). BEWARE: In case you are twisting the throttle and pressing the brake lever at the same time, the bike will stand still. Once you release the brake, the bike will take off.
Before using the Controller for the first time or in case you have swapped the stock SurRon Throttle for another brand, you should calibrate the throttle. You should also re-calibrate the throttle every time you are resetting the controller to the factory features.
Scroll to the bottom of the 4th Screen (Controller Settings) and click on the Calibrate Throttle. Then follow the instructions on the screen.
RESET THROTTLE TO DEFAULTS
Click to reset to factory settings.
SPEED & TEMPERATURE UNITS
You can choose between Kmh and Mph and C and F as measurement units. The chosen units will be applied to other sections of the App.
Find out all the general information about your Controller, App, and Firmware versions.
Track the distance you have made with the controller.
Change the sprocket tooth count or ratio. This function comes in handy in case you are using wheels that are not the same size as the stock Surron/Segway wheels. This option will affect the displayed speed.
Choose the values that correspond to your wheel. Wheel diameter will affect the displayed speed.
In case you want additional protection for your Controller, enter a Bluetooth password, which can be found on the Controller`s label.
Scan for available Controllers.

Update your firmware to the latest version.
IMPORTANT: Calibration must be done before each first use of the controller and after each firmware update! Click on the calibration button and follow the wizard to calibrate the motor and throttle.

RESET TO FACTORY DEFAULTS
Reset your Controller to the factory settings. By pressing this button you will lose all the settings you have made previously.
Press this button for some additional settings regarding CURRENT, FIELD WEAKENING, and THROTTLE.
1-CURRENT-Battery regen: This option limits the max amount of current flowing back into the battery during regeneration. Adjust this setting based on your battery and the charging power capabilities of the battery.
2-FIELD WEAKENING-Start at speed: Use the slider to set the speed at which field weakening will activate. This option impacts motor efficiency and field weakening performance. If you want maximum efficiency, set it to 'late'.
3-THROTTLE-Current protection: Some throttles might consume more current than expected. If throttle errors 3 or 5 arise, this might be the reason. Disabling this option will also deactivate the short-circuit detection on the throttle handle.
4-THROTTLE-Throttle release time: The time from when the throttle lever is released until the value drops to zero. Reduce if you want a quicker throttle release response
