Reading Current and Voltage

I have a very basic electronics question. How do I measure the motor’s current and its voltage? I don’t want to put the voltmeter probes on the wrong place. Can anyone, please, give me a hand?

Thanks a lot

current measurement is in series
voltage measurement is in parallel
(I think you can read it with the odrive)

Motor current: odrv0.axis0.motor.current_control.Iq_measured
Motor voltage in dq frame is at:

  • odrv0.axis0.motor.current_control.v_current_control_integral_d and
  • ...v_current_control_integral_q

I tried it but odrv0.axis0.motor.current_control.Iq_measured was always 0.0A.
Are there any other parts to change in the settings?
Can the gimbal motor read the current value?

Thanks a lot.
