I just acquired o-drive board for work and tried to set up a motor. I am using a flipsky 6374 190kv motor.
The motor comes with build-in 3 hall sensors and I also added an AS45047P sensor.
The motor and hall sensors work, I can properly control the motor with hall sensors using VESC tool.
Now the o-drive board.
Using the built-in sensors the motor turned, successfully calibrated, I saved the results.
Then I tried all controls, position, velocity, etc. without success. The board started throwing errors.
I re-calibrated a few times, tried again to simply turn the motor, same result – nothing, Some times the board had errors, some time it didn’t have errors but no motor action either way. At that point I reset the parameters and switched to AS45047P. The motor calibrated, I tried to turn using velocity, nothing.
Checked for errors, no errors.
At that point I can conclude the board is defective.
- Has anyone encountered a similar issue?
- Where / how can I return the board? I am not a hobbyist, this is work related and I cannot afford to tinker with apparently pre-production hobby-grade board. I was under the assumption it’s a production grade board, I guess I was wrong. Nowhere on the website is a place I can initiate an RMA.
I would appreciate any input.
Thank you. Valentine
