In as few words as possible, I am having problems with motors clicking when they spin up.
I find this problem peculiar because when I begin to spin up the motors SLOWLY there is no problem. However when the throttle (on the 2.4ghz controller) is pushed QUICKLY, the motors begin to throw a temper tantrum, and click.
I am using:
2 Ollin 5065 200kv motors
2 Ollin 4.12 VESC’s - Using vesc firmware (2.18)
1 Enertion SPACE Cell 10s3p
That looks like the tracker is stalling, its quite normal when going full throttle from a stop in sensorless mode. You could try increase or reduce the startup boost see if it works better, or you could just go easy on the throttle.
First of all thanks everybody for responding, I was at school this afternoon.
@Jinra Hi thanks for the feedback. Not sure what you mean by tightening the pulley to the shaft. Also, I don’t think it has to do with the belts being too tight, in just a moment I’ll try to post a video of the motors still clicking even without the wheels on (Standalone motor).
@Jebe What did you end up doing to help stop the motor from clicking?
@guyguy Yes, The motors click when in full throttle and when there is load present. In fact the only time they do not click is when spinning up slowly, or without any load like in the video. .
@GrecoMan Thanks for tagging @chaka He has always been a very reliable member in this community, and I hope he has some time to help with this hiccup.
@chinzw Thanks for some feedback. I’m not sure what the tracker is? Secondly, could you show me where I can adjust the startup boost (in BLDC i’m assuming)? And I thought I could just go easy on the throttle too, however with even the slightest load on the motors they begin to stall and do what happened on the bench
