Hub motor doesnt support load

Postby TimB » 26 Apr 2017, 15:04

Hi all,

I recently started to use a VESC for my project. The BLDC version is 2.18 and my hardware is 4.12 (from Maytech).

Everything works fine. The VESC connects, I can configure it and run my hub motor with no load through the BLDC tool.

HOWEVER when applying a load on it the current drops and the motor stops until the load is released.

Does anyone can help me with this issue please :) ?

Thanks!

Did you set current limits correctly? Is the LEDs flashing when it stops? Any fault codes?

In fact I managed to correct the issue by flashing another firmware version (2.54).

Kind of strange that even if my previous firmware version was compatible with the BLDC supported version I had this behavior...

Thank you anyway for your reply :)
