Im trying to figure out if it is possible to use ODrive to control an actuator on/off, based on max set current.
I need to alter 4wheel drive on/off through a BMW X-drive transfer case, and it uses an actuator controlled clutch.
The actuator is a bldc motor, and no encoder.
I’ve searched through litterature from BMW, and I understand that they, based on current limits, check max/min stroke of the actuator at each power off cycle.
I’d like to do the same, but I’m not as advaced as BMW, so I don’t need to stop in the middle, I only need on/off based on an adjustable current setting.
The motor turns maximum 20-25turns from full off to full on.
Is this possible with ODrive?
