WTB: Where does one get the newest VESC boards? 5.0+?

Postby Kin » 16 Nov 2016, 02:35

Hi, I hope I'm not breaking forum rules here, with a WTB. I am not entirely sure the best place to locate this thread.

I am not 100% in the loop with VESC development, but I understand the V5 and newer boards are likely to be better with FOC. I want FOC for my application, so I am looking to get those boards, but I all the vendors I see are selling V4. Is there some reason for this that I am misunderstanding?

Many thanks!

[I'm also experienced with soldering and can do a kit if it's much cheaper or only option]

Hi Kin,

VESC 5.0 has not been released yet; the current hardware version is still 4.12. Judging from the posts here from Benjamin Vedder, he wants to make sure the hardware and firmware both works OK before releasing anything. He has also been busy rewriting the "bldc-tool" (which will be called vesc-tool in its new form, if I'm not mistaken).

So, we just need to be patient...

And.... Although V5 never was published, it was abandoned for new ideas that are incorporated into V6. So the next version will be V6.

Ah, shit! :). Well, thank you for that clear explanation.

I suppose I still "WTB" but I will be waiting for a bit longer. I can delete my thread, or keep it up for any other confused similarly uninformed souls? I certainly won't be offended if a mod deletes it.
