I’ve been using Enertion VESC v4.12 boards for a while, and I’ve just gone through my third (only paid for 1, thankfully), and all have given me the drv8302 error. This third one was a used one from Enertion, that they said had thorough testing, and had worked fine.
The last 2 saw a pampered operating environment in terms of temperature, as they were mounted in my custom made aluminum case, with direct mosfet heat sinking. Made hill climbs easy with a single motor! So I can’t imagine I have had any temperature issues.
I’m quite disappointed with the lack of reliability these boards have been giving me. I’ve kept the battery current at 50A or less, and the motor current 120A or less, which I’ve heard is fine. I’ve heard of others using 200A on the motor without issue.
So, my question is, who sells the most reliable VESC? Is the VESC-X any good? At this point I’m hesitant to try anything else from Enertion…
