I purchased two 4.12 VESC’s from Enertion way back 2016. Sadly that summer was pretty much over by the time I got all my parts for my first build. Next summer was very cold and I had other shenanigans, but now it’s warm again and I figured I could try to build my board.
I started by checking if I could update my VESC’s that had never been powered on before and immediately halted by not getting these things appearing in windows 10 device manager, first I tried with half charged 3S LiPo, and nothing but blue light shines on the ESC’s.
Then I did the TeamViewer dance with Enertion support and they claimed it has to be at least 6S battery in order to work, so I did what I could and put two very beefy 4S pack’s in series, measured 30V output and connected with anti-spark XT90 connector, but it was exactly the same, just blue light no new devices.
Guy had no clue what to do and suggested I should ask here if anyone has any idea what might be going on.
I suppose it doesn’t matter if they are connected to a motor or not in order to poke at them under windows. Like I said, I have never installed or powered these before this day.
Any bright minds out there?
