Hi, I had my VESC hooked up to a space cell, and VESC to my enertion r-spec motor. BLDC firmware was at 2.8, up to date, so I had no problems connecting the VESC to the BLDC tool. I was following vedder’s step by step guide to getting motor detection.
Read configuration, set sensor mode to sensorless, commutation mode to integrate, motor was not carrying a load. Ran start detection, and the motor got going! It started up super fast VEEEEEE, slowed down for awhile, then suddenly jolted up again VSH and the next thing I know, the VESC disconnected from the BLDC tool, and the blue and green LEDs that usually show the VESC is powered up no longer light up.
I’m not particularly upset about things not working, just kinda bummed cause the motor started spinning and I got so excited thinking I almost had everything in place!
What went wrong, and how can I prevent it from happening again? Could it perhaps happen to be a bad VESC? I’ve already ordered new ones, one from enertion and one from ollin boards as I’m really excited just to get going and riding.
Here are pictures of the VESC now, I don’t have a trained eye to look for defects. Any help would be greatly appreciated, love this community.
Could the part in the red box be what’s up?
I’ll be more than happy to add more photos if you need a closer look at a specific part!
