    Important notes:

    • For the wiring of the battery Molex and how to handle the BMS: Please consult other resources eg. pev.dev
    • Floatboxx MCM has limited internal space, so cable lengths matter to be able to tuck them away. These are the advised cable lengths in mm:
    Connection: VESC PCB to the Floatboxx wall (incl part of the connector) bare wire length (without main connector)
    On/Off 130 100
    Hall 120 110
    Footpad 145 135
    Motor (incl bullets) 140 130
    Battery (incl XT60) 130 120

    Notes:

    • We use metric screws and tools: M5 to mount the box, M3 to mount the lid 
    • Floatboxx is not guaranteed to be waterproof on it's own. Do a visual inspection first for small gaps. For 100% certainty: use the Badgerwheel kit . Total waterproofness depends on the complete assembly by the user.
    • Use a 1 mm thermal pad between the box and the Mosfets.
