VESC Software

Submitted by benjamin on Wed, 2018-01-24 09:50

The VESC software is free and open source, and can be found on github. This is the source code for the firmware that runs on the VESC hardware:

https://github.com/vedderb/bldc/

this is source code of VESC Tool, which is used to configure, control and monitor the VESC hardware from desktop and mobile platforms:

The software is released under the GNU General Public License version 3.0. Instructions on how to set up an development environment and build the software can be found in the pages below this page.

What else do I need to do to get it to conenect? Any help on this would be great as its been a grusem time trying to troubleshoot this. No where can I find any good help as to what I need to do...

Hi.

Where can I view a changelog for the firmware and also is there a way of knowing when firmware has been updated so I know when to flash my vesc?

 

Cheers

Steve

It looks like people have precompiled VESC Tool for windows, but I'm not able to find it? Any hint?

Is it possible to run it on Windows, or do I need to compile for it?

I was very happy with the old version of the BLDC tool. I can't manage to run the new vesc tool on mac.

I would really be happy to have some help.

I read erwincoumans message but I don't understand what compile means, I am not a programmer.
I also downloaded a Ubuntu version of the Bldc tool but it doesn't seem to run on the demo dvd.

Thanks for the answers.

Hi, I bought a VESC on Amazon (FSESC 4.12) and I would like to download the VESC Tool for Windows software.
After placing it in the cart, when I click buy (also the Platinum version) the cart is emptied and I do not get anything else.
I would like clarification for the download.
Thank you for your quick answer.

Olá Lucas, estou com o mesmo problema que vc, após adicionar o programa, quando vou finalizar aparece a informação que o programa foi retirado do carrinho.... Vc consegue resolver o problema???

of course not! lol!

You would need to understand A LOT of the code than Benjamin made and based on your question you clearly don't. Download the source code for the vesc tool and try to understand how it uses the keyboard as input. 

For some reason my computer doesn't recognize my Flipsky FSESC 4.20. evrything is plugged in and powered, ive tried 4 different usb cables, different ports, and also different computer. I feel like im missing a driver or something for it to recognize it? any help is much appreciated!

Flipskys are not built on high end components like a genuine VESC. I have scrapped 2 of 2 flipsky, 3 of 3 VESC are still pushing. I suggest for safety reasons to save flipsky for remote rc vehicles.

As far as plugging into them, for the short time they worked, windows update was able to locate all needed drivers to work with VESC tool.

Where can I find specific source code releases of different versions of the firmware?  Many VESCs in the past use firmware version 2.18.  Where is the source for that version located?

Thanks.
