Im a first time VESC user, got everything all soldered up and ready, but now I need the final steps on how to set all the VESC settings for my particular setup and would really appreciate a step by step/screen share for variables/settings everything you think I would need to set:slight_smile:
Keep in mind, this is NOT for a skateboard, rather a type of boat.
Im running 2x 6S (22.2v each) in series providing 12S, any settings for this power?
I have inline 60A fuse, and would like to set the VESC to liimit max Amps to 50A ??
I do not want reverse
I do not want regenerative braking
Im running 500kv, 6 POLE inrunner. how do I limit RPM to 20,000
Im running VESC:
Current limits are in BLDC tool. Battery max is current going into the VESC, Motor max is current in the motor. A 6 pole motor should translate to 3 erpm = 1 rpm. Which means 60,000 eRPM = 20,000rpm which is perfect since 60k is about what the VESC4 can take. You can set that limit in the same page as currents.
For setup, you just need to configure the current limits, then run motor detection in the BLDC tab. Then setup your controller in the App Config tab and you’re pretty much set.
Yes, on the “App Configuration” tab, there should be a tab on the left called “PPM”. Within that tab there should be a number of different settings to choose frop at the top, I would choose “current no reverse”.
Check the little “display” box and a green bar will appear. Then push the trigger all the way forward for break and look at the value inside the changing box, then input that value in the min pulse width. Then pull the trigger on the way back for throttle and enter the value you see in the max pulse width box.
Should be somewhere around 1 for min and 2 for max
