this was the first time I tried the VESC.
Here is what I did:
Using a lab power supply, since I didn’t finish the battery pack yet. Put the voltage to 34.4V.
Connected the vesc to power supply than connected the vesc to the PC.
I read the config and put the battery cutoff start to 33V, the end to 30V.
I wrote the config successful.
Went to BLDC tab and started detection. Motor spun really short and gave the following out:
Int limit: 76.86
Hall sensor detection failed:
5, -1, 1, -1 , 4, -1, 2, -1
I’m running 130kv torque HUBs.
Important to note is here that I (stupidly) didn’t order the cable-adapter to connect the motor hallsensor to the VESC hall input.
I measured the voltage from the outer 2 pins and the outer one (the once next to the border) is the positive one.
Than I connected the red cable from motor hall with the outer pin on the board, the black one with the inner pin and the others in the original order (but the order of those actually doesnt even matter, right?).
I made sure there is no contact in between the pins. They are all isolated.
I’m buying a JST XH pack on amazon asap.
If you could upload an actual picture of the wiring from your motor to the VESC board, I really would appreciate.
