Coming from flipsky.net for around $100.00 After about 50 kilometers using our initial Turnig 60A ESC (certainly with no brakes) our VESC lastly got here! Super delighted to hook this up.
Installation was rather direct. Our company included the female 4mm bullet ports (considering that 4mm male ports were actually currently on the motor's cords), as well as hooked up the 3 cords to our arduino/NRF recipient. Along with the Limits, the VESC is a bit longer than many ESCs, however only match the battery carton. It has no heat energy sink ... not sure however what (if just about anything) to carry out regarding that.
With no setup modifications, the motor was completely less competent
. Straggling esk8 forums and playing around with the software application, our team eventually acquired the many setups according to our 6s electric battery * 147kv electric hub motor skateboard
motor settings, changed the amperage for discharge as well as cost (stopping), and so on. I think the authentic VESC environments were prepared for Enertion's 10s electric battery, 190kv setup. All informed, the settings took a bit of patience, a couple of hrs and also concerning 5 models (trial run) to obtain it straight. There is actually quite little in the method of records so several of the field/value sets are actually an enigma. Best resource of details are actually the notification boards on esk8.
Setup Velocity Control: I in the beginning presumed one thing mistook along with the VESC's potential control electric motor speed based upon throttle placement since remaining on my seat, I could just receive period or full power ... not much in between. It clearly showed the joystick posture so we understood it wasn't the the PPM/PWM settings. Yet I think this is typical for a current-controlled body ... as well as with no protection on the motor, even a small stream is going to quickly spool as much as max Revoltions Per Minute. After a fast bench test (under bunch currently), velocity management was actually ok.
FOC: Our company are actually using the new FOC method ... supposed to be very silent and also allow starts from a full stop ... no pressing needed. It's a few Miles Per Hour slower utilizing FOC (vs BLDC) ... unsure why.
VESC contacts it PPM yet I believe they imply PWM. They are actually entirely various points, however our arduino-based PWM result appears to operate perfectly when deciding on the PPM mode in the BLDC tool.
Steep-Hill Twist: Clearly much less torque upward our road's very steep hillside. I reckon the aged ESC had the capacity to drag more existing than the battery's 52A rating as well as the VESC upholding the 52A setup. May likewise be actually related to slow-speed twist in FOC method? Not exactly sure however. Getting plenty of acceleration torque on standard and also average hills when the motor is actually switching quicker.
Velocity: Coming from a total halt the velocity is fairly brisk ... took some acquiring made use of to now our team love it. No power lag emerging of a turn or reaching the gas after coasting ... instant energy. Exciting.
Braking: After fifty miles of making use of our pastime king ESC with no brakes ... our team actually cherish this attribute currently. We have the capacity to go down hills, drop in traffic, ... once again, merely spectacular. Took place a 8 kilometer experience in higher density website traffic today on the water front in Portland and had the capacity to weave in and out of individuals, reduce at will, quit at traffic lights, stay at a practical velocity worsening on the Tillikum Crossing bridge with folks all over.
Silent: Incredibly quiet ... in FOC setting. Just about absolutely no engine sound ... a significant distinction.
Starting from a full stop: I'm thus made use of to pushing a couple of opportunities that it is actually hard to venture out the routine ... but from a full stop it will definitely pick definitely no jitter or engine gripe. Fully noiseless.
What our team will perform in a different way upcoming opportunity.
Electric motor Shaft/Sprocket: Our 147KV Turnigy behaves, however given that the shaft is smooth our experts had to file level spots for the gear's collection screws. This was fine along with an usual ESC. Certainly never possessed a problem along with the gear moving after we cranked down on the established screws. But now that our company're stopping, the backward and forward power is releasing the gear. Probably going to pay for a little bit extra for Enertion's 190KV electric motor that possesses a hollow in the shaft for a king-pin.
Electric battery: Currently our company have 2 6s electric batteries we operate independently. Excellent create for learning, handles 12-15MPH. A lot quickly, really good acceleration and wonderful for knowing. Our experts'll
possibly go with a 10s setup (2 fives in collection) for a bit much more top-end rate as well as velocity.
Trucks/ Wheels/ Hardware: Enertion single electric motor setup (the major one). Searching for an upkeep complimentary engine place that stays in place. Hope that fits the bill.
