The Silent Electrical system of a Van Raam bicycle has several support modes: supportmode 1, 2 and 3. You can use supportmode 1 when you don’t need much support or when you want a high range. Mode 2 gives more support. In this support mode, the range is smaller than in mode 1. Normally, support mode 3 is used for mountainous areas because this support mode gives a lot of support, so that you can go up a hill. The range in mode 3 is lower than in mode 1 or 2.
Starting aid/launch control.
The display has an starting aid/launch control button. When the starting aid is activated, you get support from the system withouth having to pedal along. The tricycles from July 2014 has the starting aid, an extra function called launch control. You get a boost when you pedal and press the starting aid button. The force of the boost depends on the support mode.
The Status of the battery capacity is shown by the five indication LED’s on the display. The five LED’s are all green except the left one, this one can also be red. The battery indication indicates the remaining capacity of the battery. The more LED’s are lit, the more power is in the battery. When the left LED blinks red the battery is almost empty and the motor does not support any longer. The head-and backlight will still function.
An option of the Silent electrical system is the central switchable lightning. The light is switched by the on/off button on the display. The display has also an automatic dimming function, all the lights are dimming in the dark.
