Few questions from a new user


I am going to buy an ODrive soon and wondering few things:

1-What is the sampling rate for the feedback loop of ODrive?
2-Does ODrive control the two axes at the same time? (Is it multithreaded)
3-Do you consider ODrive a motion controller or a motor driver?
4-What is the recommended device that is used along ODrive to send positions commands and path planning?

Thanks all.

  1. 8 kHz
  2. Yes, it is multithreaded using FreeRTOS. Both axes run simultaneously.
  3. It has basic trajectory planning functions for a single axis, but no multi-axis controls. It’s a servomotor controller
  4. A computer running Python
