Winding Thermistor input and commands

#1

I searched the forum and could find anything relating to off board thermistors, but I the motors sold in the odrive shop have internal thermistors and the motors we are using in our project have internal Thermistors, so seeing as they are available I though I might as well go hook them up so we can be safe.
So what inputs do I connect them to on the Odrive and what are the commands to get the temp reading? Can it be set to automatically shut down when over temp or will we need to implement this ourselves?
Maybe this is covered in a guide somewhere that I have missed?

Other controller we have used have had motor heat estimation built in by tracking the current sent to the motors and using a very basic temperature Capacitor model as a heat model but if the thermistors are built in, it might as well track this instead of modeling it.
