Detection failed. Reason: -11

When running the Setup Wizards for the motor I got the message "Detection failed. Reason: -11". Where can you find information about it and what does that mean?

Same. I'm trying to bring up a large diameter outrunner with FOC and an ABI encoder coming in through the Hall port.

Anyone know what -11 is? 

I also guessed on the encoder wiring: A into H1, B into H2, and I into H3. I haven't been able to find any documentation online. Anyone figure this out already?

-11 means that some fault code occurred during detection. You can type faults in the terminal after to see what the fault code was.

If it helps, I also had the Detection failed. Reason: -11 problem. I was using a power supply and it turned out that it was limiting the current. Once I increased the current limit, the motor detection started working.

hello, I  have a similar problem, I  bought two  new vesc with firmware 3.38. when I connected to my pc in BLDC tool, it showed a message saying that the firmware was too old. so I began to use VESC tool, I updated the firmware  to 3.62 and I was trying to connect the motors clicking in wizard >setup motors FOC, but when I clicked on run detection the light red in the vesc blinked 3 times and  appeared a window saying detection failed reason:-11 , so I went to the terminal and there appeared " fault: fault_code_drv", I tried this with and without the receiver conected to the vesc and it gives the same message, I don't know if this information is matter but I clarify that  when  I conect the receiver with my vesc it always remains blinking , I tried to push "bind" in the transmitter and turn on it and a red light  remained in the receiver and a green blinking light appeared in the transmitter however I tried again the whole process and it didn't work. so  I have not been able to use the motors, I am not a professional, this is the first time  I build a skate , I hope you can help me, thank you


I use two lipo bateries of 8Ah an 22.2 v, conected in serie

and two motors sk3  6374 of 149 kv

and one transmitter GT2B
