I’m trying to figure out what to do with these shiny new VESCs I got from @onloop a couple of weeks ago. My board is nearly ready, so in the next few days I’ll be connecting the electronics and configuring this dual Ollin 170kv motor Enertion VESC 8S setup.
But I tried to download the latest BLDC tool, and things are getting weird. Looks like the tool is mid re-locate or something? The links I followed didn’t get anywhere, or got to http://vesc.net.au/download-now/ which didn’t allow me to download the current version for OS X or Windows, even after the forced sign up to their mailing list next to all the misspelt donation buttons. (I’d happily pay BTW, but not forced before-hand I don’t know what I’m getting, let me donate afterwards).
I did manage to find the OS X version of the tool by navigating through their file structure (always disable indexing in your webserver config). The app I got works, and I’m not sure on the version, but it only supports firmware versions 2.17 and 2.18.
So that is the next problem. The tool comes with a bunch of firmwares for different hardware, how do you know which hardware your VESC has? I see this:
