Today I have connected my Maytech VESC and I couldnt get it to work…the BLDC tool says DRV8302 Error
I am 100% sure there have been no shorts/sparks or anything like that, before the error occured I had embedded my motor leads into the deck (LHB style) with polyester resin and I might have switched them. I also resoldered two leads to the sensors of the motor. That are the changes I made before reconnecting the VESC.
Before the VESC had been running smoothly and I have never had any issue…
Battery Max is a bit high, also you should leave your min/max voltage alone (8/57 default). Some of these settings may have blown the DRV. You’ll need to swap it out or get a new VESC. SMD soldering the chip is a bit difficult though. You may want to consult @JohnnyMeduse for a swap.
Ok…few more questions from me
My friend studies electrotrchnics so he could repair it cheaply for me Is there something importnant he should know?
I have to exchange just the DRV?
Where can I buy DRV in EUrope? I know I can buy from aliexpress, but are there any european vendors where I could get it faster than 19 days?
No idea about any european vendors, but people typically order off mouser in the States I believe. Just make sure to show your friend Vedder’s schematic from his site. There are two pairs of leads that need to be bridged on the chip.
Hi @aigenic, as @Jinra mention always leave min max voltage to the original limits.
Also, It’s look like the integrator limit are the default one, those should have change after your motor detection, maybe you did push the write button after the motor detection, witch could lead to a drv faults
You best choice to get the part fast is probably MOUSER.
Ok, my friend is not able to change it…he just took away the old DRV and damaged my VES a little…he said he had put everything back in right order and tested everything so it should work, but it doesnt look well
Am I cursed or what?!
So I have bought a new VESC from goaxle.com…after some time it was dispatched and then the parcel got lost…However I got my money back from axle (really nice customer support )
So I orerd from Vandaelectronics.com…the VESC was dispatched this monday and it was delivered yesterday…today I checked all the fucking cables, everything is well isolated…and guess what…I connected it and the DRV blew up!!! FUCK THIS
