I seem to be running into an issue with the dual motor setup I’ve changed using the BLDC Tool.
I’m using an Enertion Dual Raptor, so I’ve got two VESCs (4.12) controlling it. My goal is to change it to FOC mode. For that reason, I got the BLDC tool (V2.15), and changed the firmware on the VESCs from 2.16 (default) to 2.15 (compatible with 2.15, couldn’t find firmware 2.17 or 2.18). I managed to change 1 to FOC mode, but the other one seems to be unresponsive. When I try measuring the motor configuration settings for FOC, it doesn’t do anything at all. Some of the strange things I notice are the resistance is about 300x as much on the motor that doesn’t do anything than the one that functions (.02 vs 6.3). The strange part is I can connect using CAN forwarding (set master to one, slave to 2, can connect from either to the other.
As for settings for the app, I set the master one to send status over CAN (if slave sends status over can, the one motor that does work gets conflicting signals). In PPM mode (since I’m using a steez remote), I set the multipl escs over can on both, then I tried disabling control on the slave, then enabling multiple over can. Nothing seems to work. Any one have a suggestion what I should try next?
