DC motor with encoder

Postby tlonsky » 04 May 2017, 08:21

Hi, i want to controll the DC motor with VESC. But i also want to know the speed of the motor. What encoder do i need for the loop into the vesc? Is quadrature encoder OK, or can even the vesc drive the DC motor with encoder?

I think you're going to have to specify abit more if you want a good answer.

Is it a BLDC motor or a two wire DC motor? If you take some time and search the forum you'll probably find similiar threads. Details on VESCs I/Os and what interfaces that are supported is also pretty well documented.
