I was running some thermal tests on an ODrive v3.6 56V. The maximum current I tested was 25 A which is below the allowed levels according to the specifications. Additionally, I was monitoring the temperature through the thermistors of the MOSFETs, which didn’t exceed 45 °C.
However, after turning the board on again the next day, the motor wouldn’t calibrate and I was getting the following output from dump_errors(odrv0).
I tried erasing the configuration, flashing the latest firmware, clearing the errors etc. but it didn’t fix the problem. Also the drv8031 chip seems to get hot shortly after I connect ODrive to power.
Does this mean that there is a short circuit somewhere? And if yes, is it repairable, or I’m going to need a new board? Also, is there any idea on what may have caused it? I’ve been working with ODrive for some months now and there wasn’t something different from what I usually do in my setup.
Thank you in advance
