esc32 module

Driver for the ESC32v3 speed controller

Motor is controlled with PWM. Data (voltage, current, RPM) are received from the serial link.

The driver should work with v2 and v3.

TBD:

  • send commands to change ESC settings through serial link.
  • support multiple ESC

For more information see:

Module functions

Init Functions

These initialization functions are called once on startup.

Event Functions

These event functions are called in each cycle of the module event loop.

Periodic Functions

These functions are called periodically at the specified frequency from the module periodic loop.

  • esc32_periodic()
    • Frequency in Hz: 10
    • Autorun: TRUE
      Periodic function automatically starts after init.
