I’m currently building a four-wheel-legged robot. Here are the specs of the ODrive I use:
H/W : ODrive 3.6.56
S/W : 0.5.6 .
And i want a brake function, but the motor I am using does not have a mechanical brake. The motor reference indicates that the brake type is electric brake. How do I use this brake type in ODrive?
I hope the wheel doesn’t turn due to external force.
It doesn’t look like that motor has a built-in brake - if it did, the ODrive could drive it with an external MOSFET or relay.
It looks like the best option for position hold is just putting the ODrive in position control mode - with properly tuned PID gains, it should hold the motor quite well.
Thank you for your answer!
so, electric brake means position control? right?
Yes, I’d generally mean that electric brake is just a cop-out by the manufacturers to avoid saying “no brake” haha
Thank you so much!
