I saw on the forum that the vesc 4.12 can only handle 27 amps? I want to set motor max and battery max higher (right now they are at 60 and 25) because I think they can handle it, but I guess the vesc can’t. Could someone confirm this is the case? I want these settings as high as i can put them safely. I’ll post the relevant information below. Thanks!
vesc 4.12 2 3s 5000mah 20c lipo in series 6374 192kv motor
From what I’ve read, the motor max could theoretically be 4032(motor rating)/12.6(pack voltage)= 320A but obviously the battery cannot output this (I plan to add one or two more 3s packs in the future btw).
By a similar argument, the battery should be able to handle 20C * 5Ah = 100A.
Is the only answer that I need a higher battery voltage so that fewer amps are drawn by the motor? Or are 60 and 25 really a starting point that you then dial for the best performance? Also, I have some heat sinks I could attach to the vesc, but is that overkill? It should just limit current if it starts getting hot and I don’t think I’m pushing its limits with 6s.
Wow. that was a lot of questions for one post. Sorry, I’ve gotta learn this stuff somehow. TLDR: Is it ok to run vesc 4.12 at higher settings than motor max = 60 and battery max = 25?
