I have 2 VESCs hw v4.10. One connects to bldc tool, one does not. I get the blue light on the vesc, but nothing else. It is not recognized by the os.
I have 3 different pcs and 6 usb cables.
Here is what I get:
Connected to win 10, 8, 7, xp - not in device manager. No new device at all.
Connected to Linux (ubuntu, centos) - dmesg results: no vesc, no unknown device.
Connected to working vesc via canbus - bldc tool: set CAN Fwd get message that cannot connect
Connected to 2 different stlink V2 - make upload: init failed.
All of these techniques work on the other vesc(except canbus of course) , the one that works.
I have also had stlink wiring checked by someone at vedder’s site and it works on the other vesc.
