Understanding Dual VESC (dual motors) setups

Hello,

When using a dual VESC setup (each VESC controlling one motor each- both motors have identical specs i.e. same model) do the VESCs talk to each other at all? What I am curious to know is whether the two identical motors will be rotating at exactly the same speed or will there be a difference?

Cheers,

Cham

Depends on your setup and choice of control mode. The controllers do talk to another and can be set to perform all sort of behaviors. In vehicles you usually do not want to lock the motors at the same speed. Imagine driving through a curve. In other applications you might want the same speed at all motors at all the time. The VESC-Tool software offers som any options to adjust things to your needs, including changing the code base to your needs.
