Encoder connection

yHello,

i wanted to connect the AS5047-Encoder to the Vesc for a sensored BLDC use. I could only find the following wiring in the forum:

Hall1 - SCK  

Hall2 - MISO

Hall3 - CS

VCC - MOSI

Is this everything to connect? What about the GND?

Thanks for your help.

Of course you should also connect ground. 
GND -- GND

The problem is that the GND cable burned when i started the automatic encoder detection/setup. It said that the motor will spin or make some noise but it only melt the GND cable insulation.

The AS board needs to be isolated, no gnd contact to nothing! GND contact only to VESC.

AS5047P

Cables need to be short.
