Firmware 5.02

This is the beta testing thread for firmware 5.02, which will mainly contain bugfixes and small improvements. It would be nice to have some help testing it out. Here is a link to the new VESC Tool with the new included firmwares for all platforms:

http://home.vedder.se/tmp2/vesc_tool_test_2020-05-03.zip

So far, the changes are:

  • Bidirectional current mode for VESC Remotes.
  • Motor temperature measurement fix on unity and stormcore.
  • IMU calibration improvements.
  • VESC Tool does not allow uploading firmware to all VESCs on the CAN-bus if they have different hardware versions.

"VESC Tool does not allow uploading firmware to all VESCs on the CAN-bus if they have different hardware versions."

Just wondering is this a new feature . . . or a bug that has been fixed?

Updated my Raptor 2 to see if this Firmware fixes some issues.



My flipsky vx 2 remote is not reporting speeds anymore unless i put it on FSESC mode on the remote (Use to be Focbox mode to make it work with unity). -->UART changes ?

The motor temperature sensors are giving weird values. (I'm sure the hardware is fine as it worked on firmware 23.46) both displaying minus 89-90*C

I left the temperature sensors settings as is. (NTC 10k @25*C) 3380 beta

Hello I have an 4x4 unity setup and I had just tried 5.02 yesterday and for some reason one of the two esc's will not pick up the hall sensor on one of my motor but if I flash 23.46 back to it just that one ESC it detected the hall sensors in that motor just fine don't know if this is a problem in the firmware but I figured I do the right thing and bring it to your attention also the original unity firmware when uploading new firmware to it it would automatically turn the unity off but In 5.02 The esc stay on I have to turn it off myself also experienced  after doing a software update and power cycling the ESC I couldn't connect to the VESC tool again unless I closed the program and reopened it I'm using the windows build ( when I was going back and forth with firmware I had the can-bus connector disconnected since the working yes he had no issue didn't see the point of me flushing and messing with that ESC)

Hi Guys, I have the vesc 300 and i noticed that the RMS phase current is not calibrated properly and also not linear. For example up to 50-100Amps the values are closer to the RMS measured current, but when i go to 300Arms the current measured is only 200Arms. I have 2 questions here. how to calibrate this to show correct current. how to change the advance angle for sensor less commutation, since I think it can be improved form the encoder test i did. The Power factor of the motor can be improved if i add 30 degree advance angle. The power factor was 0.729. \
