VESCular6 (VESC6 + Circular)

VESC firmware based Motor Controller, Small Circular Type

Public Chat
Similar projects worth following
This motor controller was designed circular shape for modular actuators. The firmware is based on VESC(https://vesc-project.com/). The AS5047 magnetic encoder is located on the center of back side of PCB. The STM32F405 Microprocessor was used and as a gate driver, the DRV8301 was used which is equipped internal buck converter and current sensing amplifier chip.The MJ-VESC provide 'DPS (Degree Per Second)' control which is advanced position control loop compared to original VESC. This allows VESCs to be used in position control robots that require high positional accuracy.

The VESCular6 can be ordered here.

  • replacing the motor controller of steadywin MIT-Cheetah actuator with VESCular6

    Dongil Choi01/31/2021 at 01:20 0 comments

    I would like to introduce the process of replacing the motor controller of the actuator of steadywin with VESCular6. The actuator that I have is an early model of Steadywin and was purchased from Aliexpress about two years ago. I was surprised by the quality of the product at the time of purchase, but I haven't used it for a while. I recently changed the motor controller to VESCular6, so I want to show you this process.

    1. The interior of the steadywin motor is as follows.


    2. Remove Existing Motor Controller

    3. Fixing VESCular6 to a 3D printer-designed cover

    4. Connecting VESCular6. Remove the default NTC 10K temperature sensor on VESCular6, and connect the temperature sensor wire of the motor instead. (Polarity is irrelevant)

    5. Assemble and complete

    * The test video will be uploaded later.

    We're almost ready for selling "VESCular6". 

    15 "VESCular6" have been completed in initial volume and will be officially sold. 

    If the initial supply is exhausted, you can purchase it in a pre-order manner.

    For pre-ordering, we receive a certain amount of orders, produce and ship them at once, which may take about a month.

    VESCular6 is a multi-functional motor controller that specializes in "Robot Position Control". Based on Benjamin Vedderb's VESC6 hardware, it provides complete compatibility and enables accurate position control through additional developed Custom App Software. 

    VESCular6 can be purchased from Site below.
