Brushed ESC control by Adruino!

Hi,

I'm a newbie and am studying to program a brushed ESC connected to a DC motor from my old RC car.

Could anyone please help me with coding it to calibrate the ESC as well as control it to forward or reverse. I dug this forum for last weekend but still no reply can nicely work.

It seems that before every time we need to control the ESC, we have to calibrate it at exact MAX_SIGNAL.

motor.writeMicroseconds(MAX_SIGNAL);

Specification:

  • Operating system : Forward, reverse, and brake operations are all liner

  • Power requirement : Nicd battery 6~7 cells (7.2- 8.4V)

  • Weight: 45g (including connectors and switches)

  • PWM frequency : 1.5KHZ (fixed)

  • Setting : One-touch input by pushbutton switch set data is saved to built-in EEPROM

  • Nicd battery 6~7 cells (7.2~8.4V)

  • BEC voltage : 6.0V

  • Current capacity (FET rating) : Forward = 90A,

Reverse = 45A

  • Motor Limit: must work with brushed motor , must work with over 20 turns motor

Fearture:

  • Forward 300A Reverse 100A High powerful and easy to accelerate

  • All components meet international safely regulations in high reliable quality

  • Designed with 2nd generation of setting up for easy operation

  • Self-detecting for malfuncations for better stable performance

Did you a question?

MorganS: Did you a question?

Yes, MorganS. Could you help me?

I can get the ESC run but the speed is much slow and I can't get it reverse.

To test an ESC load up the "Knob" example under servo in the example tab. You will need a pot to use it.

Thank Justone, I'm digging and hope it will solve my problem.
