@BigBoyToys, managed to use ver 3.26 for my focbox. Thanks

Something must have happened to 3.27 and onward,

@trampa how do I activate, handbrake function? fmw3xx has much better braking power, but also wants to try and decide.


#488

So I should choose 60 and will be just fine? We are talking on a Maytech VESC btw.


#489

60 is vor VESC SIX HW only! You have to choose the first option, I did it with HW 4.12, easy!


#490

Thanks!

So I uploaded a bootloader (I hope so). To make sure, I want to update the firmware.
My Maytech VESC hardware is 4.12, so in VESC Tool I should choose 410 & 411 & 412, correct?


#491

Yes … 10 char


#492

Correct! Don’t FOC it it up, stay with BLDC if you can. The maytechs are reported to have FOC issues.

Frank


#493

Will never try… :joy:
I’ll sell it one day and get a better quality VESC with FOC compatibility.

Succes.

So if I was able to update the firmware, I assume this VESC has a bootloader now. :innocent:


#494

Yes it has a bootloader now. You can still try FOC with low KV motors and pushing not more than 40A on the motor side.

Frank


#495

My motors are 210 KV so I guess I shouldn’t test it.

By the way, is it possible to downgrade the firmware back to 2.18?


#496

Yes, you can upload the 2.18 FW through the custom FW tab.

How is sensorless foc?
Currently using BLDC, but I have the typical cogging if I don’t move the board forward slightly upon startup.


#498

Its pretty good, i’m on sensorless FOC. Almost zero cogging.


#499

Just a heads up, doing it the way you showed in your screenshot did NOT upload a bootloader to my Maytech vesc. I had to click on the Bootloader tab and do it that way. I would test to make sure.


#500

Sorry, didn’t quite get it.
What did you encounter when you tried to upload the bootloader via the tool?


#501

Heads Up regarding R = 0 bug on focbox : http://vesc-project.com/comment/863#comment-863


#502

Benjamin thinks its sorted. There are also some other tweaks he has done.
The input wizard should be much better now.

The next thing to be implemented is a big thing for all of us!
A new control mode that will change the way we control our power quite drastic. Surprise surprise…

Frank


#503

sounds like he’s just turning on watt control again after turning it off from 3.29?


#504

Watt control was never implemented and will never be. Benjamin’s opinion about that is quite clear.
We are talking something completely different.

Frank


#505

Any sort of timeline on the “surprise”?? I’m getting excited!
