So I finally got my board put together, and tested it out on my first ride. About 5 minuets in I lost power to the motors. Came home to check it out and I find that the master VESC is not turning on. I’ve emailed Enertion Support and am waiting for a response. Attached are some images of the VESC. Any suggestions?
I did, there appears to be a small indentation on the red wire. I noticed it when it arrived in the mail, so I re-did the heat shrink to prevent any further damage. The plastic wire is not punctured, but like i said there is a mark. Could this cause failure?
What exactly were you doing at the time of shut-down of the vesc?
Have you tried mesuring he voltage, is that still coming trough?
Have you checked all components? Smd-connections? Does something smell burned?
Have you tried it again after an hour or so to make sure it wasn’t just over-heating?
What battery are you using?
Sorry for all the questions, just trying to pinpoint you in the right directions and getting some info gathered for other members that would chime in.
The red wire should be good then if you checked and upgraded the protection.
4- If you the doesn’t get the same result as touching the lead together, GOOD New the 5v is ok, but the problem is somewhere else. But if you get a beeping sound or the result is the same as touching the lead together, then you have a short over the 5v, and from my experience, it is 90% chance of a internal short over the can tranceiver (u401).
If you’re running dual motors, your current limits are too high. Keep in mind that values should be halved since you’re running dual setup. I’d make motor max 40-50 per vesc and adjust as needed. motor regen should be at 40ish or you will be braking pretty hard. Battery max is a bit low and should be higher at about 30amps per VESC. Your SCP4 supports 80A continuous, but you want to try to be below that. Battery regen is too high and it should be -8A per VESC for safe charging.
