DC Current sensor
Idea, goes straight within my “will do in the future”: hall sensor ring, to measure DC current right near the ESC, let’s define 100A max rated, plugged into the Arduino buffer or Arduino RC receiver, a sub-loop with an “if” and an “else” for example, measure the current and force a progressive smooth derating of the power to keep the max current within motor specs…
I know Vesc can do it but mostly we run on ESC, we struggle for safety etc… where keep the current absorption lower than motor max rating it’s the first thing!
Playing with codes, we might even ramp a constant current accelleration and other nice thing.
What do you think? So far, the big deal is to source a sensor at decent price… I’ve one plugged to my Volt/ Ammeter but it’s pricey… and there’s limited choice when it comes to DC current (for AC there are planty of transformer style sensors, ver cheap).
