I’ve downloaded BLDC tool for Mac fairly recently and the “Max Current Ramp Step” bug still seems to be present. For those unaware, when you read and write config on the motor configuration tab, the Max current ramp step field under “advanced” will multiply by 10. This can possibly be fatal to your VESC so remember to reset it whenever you write to motor configuration.
The default value is 0.04, however, if you set it to that and write it will change to 0.4 since it multiplies by 10, so set it to 0.004 and write config.
I’ve heard the issue was fixed, but i’m unsure as to where or what versions it’s fixed for. This information is accurate as of 5/30 (when I downloaded BLDC tool) off Jacob’s site (vesc.net.au) for OSX firmware v2.18. I can’t confirm if this is happening on Linux/Windows.
EDIT: This issue is fixed on latest f/w revisions by @jacobbloy and @elkick. Not sure who else has updated f/w’s uploaded, but these two have confirmed bug-free versions. The version will still be 2.18 so you won’t know if you have a bug free version until you test it out. Information accurate as of 8/28/16
