Anti Spark Switches and Regen?

Post by s28400 » Aug 12 2016 11:52pm

Hey guys,
I was wondering if the anti-spark switches like alien power systems sell can utilize regen features of the vesc. Aren't mosfets one directional?
Thanks

They are one directional, but they conduct always in reverse direction so they can handle regen.

A switched FET is like a piece of wire. Current can flow in both directions.

Ok cool, just making sure. I wasn't sure if these switches used fets or not as I have not ripped on open.
Thanks!
