ODrive for Lower Voltage Motors?


#1

Is it possible to use ODrive with motors that run below 12V? I have many brushless motors that are rated around 8V or even 5v. Wondering if they could be used if current limiting was set correctly or if there is some other option for lower voltage motors?

If not, I’d have to say i’m interested in something similar to an ODrive made for smaller, lower current motors.

You can use a higher voltage than the rated voltage of the motor, just set an appropriate velocity limit in the ODrive.
