How to Connect Electric Switch on MTVESC6.12?

How to Connect Electric Switch on MTVESC6.12?

The ESC has a port for electric switch. Price doesn't include the switch button. You can connect your own switch button to the port " ON/OFF,  LED(5V), GND". If connect ON/OFF pin and GND pin, the ESC is off; disconnect them, the ESC is on. The LED pin is for 5V switch LED.   What will happen if ERPM exceed 10,0000 when use this VESC? If ERPM is too high, it will damage the driver IC, and MCU computing power can't be controller normally, which may cause motor click or stuck suddenly.  Attention Please: 1. When ERPM exceed 50,000 will...

What is the function of a brushless motor? Beginner’s guide to choose the suitable motor

What is brushless motor? A brushless DC electric motor (BLDC motor or BL motor), also known as electronically commutated motor (ECM or EC motor) and synchronous DC motors, are synchronous motors powered by direct current (DC) electricity via an inverter or switching power supply which produces electricity in the form of alternating current (AC) to drive each phase of the motor via a closed loop controller. The controller provides pulses of current to the motor windings that control the speed and torque of the motor. The construction of a brushless motor system is typically similar to a permanent magnet synchronous...

What is BEC and UBEC? What is the difference? Why do I need an UBEC?

What is BEC and UBEC? What is the difference? Why do I need an UBEC?

BEC stands for Battery Elimination Circuit. It’s just a fancy name for voltage regulator, which converts main LiPo battery pack voltage to a lower voltage (e.g. 2S 7.4V, 3S 11.1V or 4S 14.8V to 5V). BEC is usually built into ESC, and as the name suggests, it eliminates the need for a separate battery to power the 5V electronic devices. UBEC stands for universal BEC or sometimes ultimate BEC. It’s used when ESC doesn’t have built-in BEC, or standalone power system is required. They generally are more efficient, more reliable and able to provide more current than BEC. The UBEC is connected directly to the main battery of the multicopter, the same...

More reference: FAQ 2 (frequently asked questions) about VESC controller

1. What is VESC? Vedder Electronic Speed Controller or VESC is an open source project, started by a Swedish engineer named Benjamin Vedder in 2014 to create a customizable high power Electronic speed control. The project was mainly tailored for the Electric skateboard, but now it can be used for many applications, such as E-Bike/Robots/Drones/Underwater propulsion system/Cable-camera/Parking system/etc.  Maytech VESC based controllers: click each picture to check specs of each VESC.    2. What is the difference of VESC4 and VESC6? Both work good in BLDC mode. VESC4 is basic version, working good in BLDC mode and more economic. VESC6 has some updates in...
