I have been following the steps in the manual, and also checked the Express Demo video by Benjamin (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wPzdzcfRJ38) however I am still not able to set up the logging on an SD card. Log started and log stopped text is shown after pressing their corresponding button, but still, the connected device/filename/browse menus are all empty. What am I doing wrong?
Is there a limitation on the card size to be used? I have tried it with a 32Gb SD card, no success in any file system (exfat/NTFS/FAT32).
Thanks in advance.
I have bought a Sandisk 64Gb SD XC card and it worked right away. What is strange is that I think it was originally formatted as exfat, but after using it with the logger it became fat32. However still no success with the smaller Kingstone 32GB SD HC card.
I have observed that during HFI testing the log only cathes the GPRS data, probably the CPU is already fully utilised.
Another note, that the logged rate of the GPS (with the quite big trampa GPS modul, Beitian BN-280) is 500ms or 2Hz, with standard settings (10Hz log rate set up) with FW 6.00, inhouse. Will update this info if there is a difference, after I have made an enclosure for the logger modules and was able to log on the go.
Additional thoughts on VESC Express:
Great thing to be able to log inner values, this is an important tool for improving a system, I definately recommend it.
While planning to integrate it in your system keep in mind that it has a power draw as well, heat should be shed somehow. One IC/transistor heats up to 60-65C in the open at room temperature. Vesc together with express roughly consumes 2W while logging based on voltage level drop during stand by.
Express tool connection and connection setup is still somewhat buggy (FW6.02), will post in beta forum.
