As the title says, I’ve burned through multiple vescs so far; two from my own personal stupidity of accidentally causing a reverse polarity, and a third and most recent one for reasons currently unknown.
I’ve gotten a total of about 10 mins of use out of my first build before the board shut itself off and came to a stop. when I took it home and undid the enclosure, the master vesc was unresponsive, while the slave vesc was fine. When plugged in, the master vesc has no lights that come on, no audible whine from failing parts, and it is not recognized by the bldc-tool. There is some heat being generated from what feels like either the large 220 uH inductor, or the DRV chip next to it. It feels like the inductor is hotter, but I know more people have issues with the DRV chip than anything so I don’t want to rule that out Not able to load faults, the vesc is completely unresponsive.
Here is a compiled screenshot of my motor settings:
Does anything stand out as a red flag? I’ve destroyed ~$300 bucks worth of these and I really don’t want to do this again.
