Hello, I have been attempting to get the Odrive to spin a pretty large 48V motor with a large back EMF (~8 v/krpm) and small kv (~120 rpm/volt).
I have tried the default ‘getting started’ procedure but have yet to get any motor movement. I have verified that the encoder works (though i’m less sure about it’s count. It’s a CUI-AMT103), the motor is brand new, the bus voltage is correct etc.
Additionally, I have attempted to execute the demo.py script and the arduino test via uart. Everything seems to be communication properly, yet still no spin.
The thing I keep coming back to is the state. Every time I check the state or request a state change, it never leaves 1 (the axis idle state).
Is there a simple solution to force a state change? Am I missing something fundamental? I’ve got the phases and encoder hooked up to an oscilloscope and I have yet to see a voltage or wave applied to the phases.
Any input on what I should try next would be highly appreciated.
