VESC UART CAN BUS

Hello Guys, Quick question, I could successfully connect to my VESC and query it's information following Benjamin tutorial, but if I have multiple VESC's connected through a can bus, how do I query the information from the second VESC? Another question, is it possible to set the ppm value using the ...

Re: UART voltage tolerance

I don't know if the pins are 5V tolerant, but you can still use the arduino pro mini (even the 5V version) powering it using 3.3V... It will run at 16MHz but slightly overclocked (out of spec). I did that for my custom controller, but ended up using a teensy-lc (3.3v and 48MHz) in the end, it is che...

Re: Can't get COMM_SET_CHUCK_DATA to work

ok... so i figure it out what was wrong, in case somebody else has the same problem I was sending the the parameters using an incorrect order... They need to be on this order: chuck_data.js_x chuck_data.js_y chuck_data.bt_c chuck_data.bt_z chuck_data.acc_x chuck_data.acc_y chuck_data.acc_z

Can't get COMM_SET_CHUCK_DATA to work

Hello Benjamin, I'm having problems trying to get my vesc to work with my custom controller. I could get VESC data to my controller, and even controll it using the COMM_SET_CURRENT command, but I can not make it work with COMM_SET_CHUCK_DATA. Based on the last BLDC firwmware COMM_SET_CHUCK_DATA,34 s...

Re: Reverse when wanting forward

Unfortunately I did not save vescs settings. I do remember that I needed to increase the current limit to the a successful detection. I thought that that was caused because the motor was connected to the wheel on my electric skate, causing more friction. Should I run the detection with the motor fre...

Reverse when wanting forward

So yesterday while testing my vesc (before I blew it) sometimes when i gave throttle from my nunchuck VESC was driving my motor reverse instead if forward. That was pretty weird because after some time it would drive the motor forward again. I'm was using FOC and a 245 kv turnigy motor, with a total...

DRV8302 Magic Smoke

I bought two vescs from enertion back on the end of January, but only got the chance to play with them today. After doing some tests using a 5s battery I connected two 5s lipo in series, to get a 10s battery. Well, the new tests did not end so well.. Magic smoke came out after few minutes. It blew t...

Re: Custom VESC controller - Prototype

Benjamin,

Another question, is it possible to set the PPM signal via UART?
