Got this new VESC6 based ESC today:
Does anyone know why they didn’t connect the GND, 3v3 and 5V pins to the COMM Port?
It seems to be on purpose, the pictures on their homepage look the same.
OK, GND ist connected to the BATT- but if I want to connect a BT Module I would like to have GND and 5V on the 8 pin COMM connector.
What is the in/off for (marked red)? It says somewhere it has an anti spark circuit built in, it’s probably for that purpose.
There is lack of documentation. I also asked the seller for this information.
I was able to connect it to the VESC Tool, it recognized HW 60 and FW 3.62
Haven’t tested apart from that.
I checked the 5v, gnd and 3,3v with a cable and an ohm meter, they are connected. The pins are soldered from the back side, hence the lack of solder on the visible side.
Did a test: If on/of is floating, it has 3.7V and the VESC is on. If I ground the on/off the VESC is off (green LED). So there must be an internal pull-up resistor that switches it on by default if no switch is connected to the on/off port. The LED output is just to connect the LED of a switch with integrated LED. It has 3.3V when on, 0 when off.
