Help with RC-Remote, Servo break App

Hi, i guess Help is the wrong term, cause i actually do not have a clue how to write an app for the VESC. So the Thread should have the titel, (who writes the following app for me ;-) so my plan is, to control the VESC with a RC-2 chanel-Remote control. - one chanel should be Gas-throttle, and Regen...

Re: ebike thumb or twist throttle and break servo ?

Hi,

question to the ADC-Mode.

Does the Regen-Break have priority over the Throttle ?

Cause i plan to use two seperate throttle, on for breaking, one for power, buzt want to be sute that if i would accidently push both that breaking has priority ??

greets

A Rule of Caps ?

Hi, besides on a future Mountainboard Project, id like to use the VESC on a Low Power Pedelec, with max 350Watt 10S (~3,5 A) Is there any "Rule of Thumb", how big Caps (in Farad) we should use for different Amps/watts. Or is there even a min. Amp where no cap at all is needed? thanks in ad...

Re: DRV8302 Magic Smoke

Hi, these replys here are not very old. ouch. So i get a bit wooried, cause i did not read about his problem enertion has/had. I just ordered a while ago, 4 VESCS with friends together. The last message, from enertion was that they will get deivered with the next"batch" middle of July. So,...

Re: ebike thumb or twist throttle and break servo ?

what if the servo goes funky and locks up the breaks? that should not happen for sure, ouch. you want to use a servo to control the mechanical breaks? that sounds dangerous! not that i makes it less dangerous in case of funkyness, but i talk about a mountainboard-project now, not an ebike. On ES-fo...

Re: ebike thumb or twist throttle and break servo ?

I don't think it is common to use a servo for braking as you don't have the advantage of regenerative braking and the disadvantage of more things that can fail in your braking system. I would recommend a pure mechanical brake instead of using a serve. thats what i plan to start with, but beeing wir...

Re: ebike thumb or twist throttle and break servo ?

you would have to use a voltage divider on the 0-5V to make it 0-3.3V shame on me, but how would such a voltage divider look like? you can find premade apps for the analog throttle and braking, the Servo out shouldnt be hard at all to add on since Benjamin already prepared for it :) Where could i f...

Re: ebike thumb or twist throttle and break servo ?

I have the resistor divider footprint on my board now.... I HAVE the voltage divider externally on my bike. It would be a good idea to check if your throttle can or cannot work on 3.3V. If it works at 3.3V too, then that would of course be easiest.... I'll try it, but i'm actually pretty sure it wi...

ebike thumb or twist throttle and break servo ?

Hi, I do not use or have a Vesc right now, but id like to clarify some ideas whats possible with it. My VESCS are still in production line (enertion), so that can take a while. My question is is it simply possible to connect a wired thumb throttle (hall sensor based, works like a potentiometer 0-5 V...
