Yes inverter is dual separate brain. One for FOC PMSM and second for ACIM motor

Will a VESC run this motor?
If so the BESC seems to fit this motor well.

I don't think it would be possible, because:
1: Stock star formation is 115V (maybe modding to delta may help lowering the voltage)
2: VESCs, afaik, they work with BLDC and BDC motors, didn't saw people testing AC motors with them, but since they're open source maybe someone can make them run AC, who knows...

BESC should be able to do 150v. viewtopic.php?f=30&t=97765
From the pictures I thought the e-assist 2 motor was a delta configuration. There are only 3 connections, no?

I thought the Axiom guys were working on controlling other types of motors and were pushing the code back into VESC. I still don't have the clarity or understanding of what's what yet.

I was hoping to use the e-assist 2 motor with something like the BESC for a few projects. Glad to see people are still working with this motor. I haven't heard anyone mention VESC with it yet.
