  1. CT : Boost converter temperature sensor

  1. GIVT : MG1 inverter temperature
  • Min.: -50°C, Max.: 205°C
  • The lower the motor temperature, the higher the resistance of the thermistor
  • Conversely, the higher the temperature, the lower the resistance.
  • (found on page HV-189)
  • "The power voltage of 5 V is supplied from the MMT terminal of the HV control ECU to the No. 1 motor temperature sensor via resistor R. Because resistor R and the No. 1 motor temperature sensor are connected in series, the resistance changes with the changes in temperature of the motor, which causes the MMT terminal voltage to also change."

  • Connected to OVH from inverter as well
  • NORMAL: 5.3 to 7.3 (5V to run)
  • ABNORMAL: 1.9 to 2.9 (Ground for fault)
  • "If the motor inverter detects a circuit malfunction or over-voltage, the inverter transmits this information to the OVH terminal of the HV control ECU via the motor inverter over-voltage signal line. The HV control ECU monitors the motor inverter over-voltage signal line to detect the malfunction."

  • Connected to Boost Controller (Red/White wire)
  • NORMAL: 5.3 to 7.7 (5V to run)
  • ABNORMAL: 1.9 to 3.0 (Ground for fault)
  • "If the boost converter has a circuit malfunction, or internal short, or overheats, the boost converter transmits this information to the FCV terminal of the HV control ECU via the boost converter fail signal line. The HV control ECU monitors the boost converter fail signal line and detects a malfunction."
