Thanks for the quick reply and I just want to say I love your work.
I don’t think it’s the configuration. I will try your suggestion but I think the issue may be EMI. I did a test where I lowered the PSU voltage down to 32 V and now I can push the motor much higher and hit a new error MOTOR_ERROR_CURRENT_LIMIT_VIOLATION. This one is also confusing since the motor current limit is set to 50 A and at 32V my PSU starts to current limit pretty quickly.
So would it be correct to say EMI is my issue at the voltages we need to run. The odrive is being used to drive the motors of our 4 wheeled robot with a 56V battery. We want the torque/low ohmic loss benefits of 56V as well as other systems on the robot need 56V. If you agree this is EMI what do you suggest I try. I have alredy ordred ferrite rings that I can wound the motor cables around. I had to use LVDS signaling on my encoder (AMS absolute encoder). That was a real pain but LVDS + decent spacing from the motor has fixed the SPI comm errors.
EMI is very new to me and I really didn’t anticipate soooooooooooo many issues. I also tested the setup at 48V and the over temp error pops up again. Only around 32ish V can i avoid it.
