Re: 10S custom skate ESC: testers wanted!

I have not had this problem personally but using the wrong firmware can be fatual, Vedder could have changed pin mapping or other that could have stopped firmware update from working. I would suggest buying a STlink v2 and if you don't have the ability to install Linux then you can follow this guide...

Re: VESC Open Source - Android App Features?!?!

hi so i have fixed ble working perfect now with the the HM-10 chip, one big problem with these chips is that you can't do write with response (unless its a fake) so when writing data you are limited to a 20 byte write. i changed the bldc code so this isn't a problem any more and did some vesc firmwa...

Re: 10S custom skate ESC: testers wanted!

Can't do wired to your iPhone as iPhone doesn't support the serial port protocol.

Best thing to do would be to use an hc-05 Bluetooth module to a very cheap 8inch Windows 10 tablet for now!

Re: 10S custom skate ESC: testers wanted!

you can get iPhone screen recording apps so i don't think that is a big deal. the hard part is currently bluetooth low energy.

awesome! I am doing lots of test/prototyping on li ion, li po, hub/drive systems and I would love to get something that will enable me to get some live recording with VESC. I just don't capture max amp peak or stuff like that. I could log with my PC connected to my USB connector but I can't ride th...

Re: 10S custom skate ESC: testers wanted!

The app will have support for a method of controlling your board board I think volume button would need to need more like cruise control, hold for progressive ramping let go to continue at that speed then volume down for brake. in the setting menu I can already set a erpm and the motor will spin at ...

Re: VESC Open Source - Android App Features?!?!

Yes I have seen your work, I have spent a lot of time with vedders code now, and he has his USB bridge that works through the can bus protocol so it is a lot easier to pull data from the vesc.

For the mobile add I just use direct spi any way

Yes I can get full real time data from the vesc, and it will be incorperated into the app, I am also porting the wii nunchuk code to arduino for every one

Re: 10S custom skate ESC: testers wanted!

The current drv chip couldn't do 12 fet but it would have to increase the switching frequency this would make the whole thing be less efficient and foc probably wouldn't work.

Re: Motor winding help needed bldc

I did a jumper to swap the small and long B phase wires, then I did the test on the jig and tested the voltage and they where all the same so I bit the bullet and tested the motor hoping my soldering was good enough and I didn't short any thing. (I hate soldering enamel wire) I spun up the motors an...

Re: Motor winding help needed bldc

A short via the stator iron ? Mmm that is an idea but it could course more then just voltage drop. I was suggested that one phase is terminated backwards. This will cause it to 'fight' the other two when you spin the motor. One way to find out - sequentially give each pair of wires some amps (a pow...

Re: Motor winding help needed bldc

I just ran the motor in a jig at about 714rpm

I tested the voltage on each phase wire, the yellow phase group is 4v below the other 2
Phase A 8.14v, phase B 4.7v, phase C 8.14v.
