So i have a sensored 6374 maytech motor being run by vesc 6. What ive landed on is running sensorless… BUT, when i spin it up it goes both ways. Depending on where it lands. When i plug vesc in it flashes red for about 3 -5 seconds is this normal? No fault codes shown in terminal.
It was being run sensored before using a vesc4 which burnt out motor locked up and threw me off. Was never sure if it was in the motor or because i wrapped the vesc4 up in bubble wrap & was drawing high currents from it. Anyways all motor wire survived.
I have just gone to do the setup today with vesc 6 / 12s & have had a series of problems…
First off i ran the motor detection with everything plugged in to be sensored. It did the detection fine & spun up fine. BUT, when i tried to test motor direction it locked up instantly & screamed at me VERY LOUD!! HIGH PITCH NASTY SOUND…
Then someone suggested swapping 2 phase wires. Tried that & when i ran the detection again it came up sensorless. It didnt seem to spin as nicely that time either.
I then had it do the detection WITHOUT SENSORS, which went fine but after that i goto spin it up & it can spin both ways… depending on where it lands i think it decides which way it wants to spin. Yes i am using current no reverse / w brake.
I tried the motor detection 1 more time & it didnt spin the motor up this time. It didnt know which way to spin. But it did finish successfully.
The new vesc tool is strange it does all 3 tests on motor in sequence. & doesnt allow you to set the current limits til after… it automatically set me at 48A motor / 99A for my battery which way too high… i have 70c lipo batteries but i only want it on 50 which i had to do after…
I am scared to run the motor detection again because i dont want to fuck my trampa vesc6.
No fault codes show on the vesc but the motor just simply wont work the way it should.
ANY HELP APPRECIATED
