Using a lower voltage motor with a higher voltage supply

Could I use the 270kv motor sold by Odrive with a 48 volt supply? They are rated at 24 volts, but from my understanding the voltage rating is there to prevent both overspeed (bearing damage) and overcurrent (winding damage). Both of these can be controlled by the Odrive, so it would make sense to me that I can drive this motor with a higher voltage provided I limit its speed and current draw to what it is rated for. Is that correct?

correct :slight_smile:
