I’ve recently build a Trampa mountainboard with dual 6374 motors. I’m currently running sensorless FOC and after being used to just using sensorless BLDC on my Vanguard build, the startup smoothness is already a fair bit better but I don’t think it’s quite good enough for when I’ve got my feet strapped in and am going on off road tracks so I want to install sensors of some kind on my motors.
Has anyone tried installing external sensors on their motors such as these ones: http://e0designs.com/products/hall-effect-sensor-board/
This looks like it’d be the simplest approach for adding sensors to my build.
Btw the reason I didn’t just buy sensored motors in the first place is because the built in sensor PCBs that come with motors generally aren’t waterproof and so I wanted to opt for a solution that I could install myself after applying several layers of conformal coating to the sensor PCBs.
