So, is it just me or am I the only one getting frustrated by the VESC 6?
First, my vesc tool has different firmware versions between operating systems (3.27 for windows) (3.32 for linux)
When I load up either of the vesc tools, it says theres an update… to go to the website. But on the website there isn’t any update! however you can see that the “vesc platinum” was updated at the mid of the year 2017, but the others haven’t been touched since 2016. Anyone else notice this? So I guess I should just ignore the update notice? that a strike on vedder. because there is literally no quick way of telling which version is what. Like all the zips are labeled the same and it shows purchased date but not updated date. I don’t know if my problem is isolated to a software or hardware because of this lack of date records.
What is the latest update for the vesc_tool? And are there differences in these updates between windows and linux?
Then theres the STLink. Had to modify the one which worked on the last vesc in order to work with this one.
Then theres the over voltage fault. in other words. I check the battery and its at 48.1 volts. however when I look at the real time data. it says its at 61.7 volts. why? if the voltage isn’t the right one, is it a hardware fault or a software fault?
then out of the 2 I ordered the other one of them worked for maybe a minute before status lights never came on again. I smelled something burning so I quickly shut it off.
I think I got a lemon. thats a strike for trampa. I already messaged Trampa… about a warranty. But is there even a warranty? I mean these vescs have never left the house yet ones burning up and the other is giving me a wrong voltage.
I find it hard to believe that because I’m getting issues with 2/2 of the vescs I received, that I’m the only one. Has anyone had issues setting up like these?
Anyone get it fixed promptly?
Hardware version V6.41
UPDATE: Trampa contacted me and we discussed back and forth. Strike striked out because we narrowed it down to a notice issue. Notice was about installing an ubuntu environment and immediately connecting an STLink for firmware update without notice of the 3.3v voltage injection issue.
