Motor detection with dual motors


#1

Should both motors spin up when running a motor detection with a dual motor config? I can spin each individually by connecting the mini USB port to their respective VESCs, but they don’t spin together.


#2

No, only the vesc that is connected via usb should spin during detection.


#3

Do motor detection for each motor individually, then turn on multiple escs over CAN on the primary VESC and send status over can on the slave VESC to enable dual motors.


#4

that’s how it works, you connect to them individually and do motor detection one at a time. Then after connecting them over can, use the controller, and both should spin.
