I have been working more on my motor controller recently, and this is a brief update on the progress. One of my test rigs is my 1:8 RC car. With this one, I can test the startup torque, the braking and many of the safety functions, e.g. the transitions and currents when going from full forward to full reverse. Here is a video of the tests:
In order to use the motor controller with a servo input signal and a similar RC car, open the conf_general.h file and use these settings:
/* * Select only one motor configuration */ //#define MCCONF_OUTRUNNER1 #define MCCONF_RCCAR1 //#define MCCONF_STEN /* * Select which application to use */ #define USE_APP_RCCAR //#define USE_APP_STEN //#define USE_APP_GURGALOF
On Sunday it is time for more interesting tests:
This is a longboard that my friend makes for his bachelors thesis. It uses my motor controllers (of course 🙂 ) and these motors.
