Odrive Voltage Rating

Hey ma people here

So i got some old Siemens BLDC Motors
They are rated with 1 kw but are driven with 173V

i had the idea to use an odrive as i got to know them for being able to drive bldc motors
and i couldnt find an alternative

but sadly that option couldnt drive the 173V of the motor too

is there any possibility to increase the rated voltage or does somebody know an alternative way i would be able to drive the motor? it already got an ecoder too!

There is no problem running 173V rated motors from ODrive - they just won;t be able to achieve their rated speed.

But no, you cannot increase the voltage rating of ODrive v3.x - the DRV8301 gate drives are limited to an absolute maximum of 60V
