Hi! Very new here glad to be part of this colective I recently built my electric longboard, this is unfortunate because i feel I dont need a girlfriend now, as I spend tones of time in it…
As a first question in the forum, I have a problem with the antispark plug wich I could not find the answer in the other posts: it sparks anyway! is this normal?
some info prio to the spark:
this is a 12S 1VESC
- motor longboard , postive cable going to VESC has the antispark female in the middle, and close the circuit a male with a fuse.
- when i plug it half way ,precharge circuit with the resistor, the VESC blinks (I understand here capacitors are charged and i can go all way in)
- when i go all way in after some second(s) a spark sounds in the XT90 antispark, then VESC turns ON and works fine --for the moment…
- after that, nothing broke, resistor in place, no magic fumes and stuff like that… in any case im afraid to plug all the times as the spark actually happens despite the setup!
thinking now on using an extra antispark I have from DIYelectricskateboard
