I’m really impressed with the simpleFOC project, but would like to move faster towards our goal.
Would any simpleFOC experts / enthusiasts / experienced users be interested in assisting me as a paid consultant for the following, as much or as little as your expertise and time allows:
Understanding if simpleFOC is right for my project (I think it is)
Choosing the hardware strategy
Assisting / leading developing the code
Assisting in bread-boarding the hardware / software design
Assisting me and my colleagues in designing the driver board
Consulting with testing
This be remote consulting, using zoom, email, etc.
If interested, please message me directly.
Yes, with forced immersion liquid cooling, low voltage and current limiting. This will be the most expensive 300rpm setup you’ll ever build. Why don’t you just get a cheap gimbal? 300rpm is only 5rps (30rad/s), that’s gimbal speed.
Yes, that is a better fit for Kv for getting this to run slowly. We’ve used several T-motor motors in the past. This project needs something a bit smaller. I’m talking with four of our suppliers about smaller gimble motors, if possible. The motor we have that fits the form factor does list that they do custom windings, so that may be the best solution to wind it with lower Kv. Thanks all!
It certainly depends on your project. For sure China supplier solves 90% of the problems. However, there are applications like, oil and gas, space, electric vehicles, and others that I have to design the motor for my clients. It is good to think of it as an alternative, which is not common.
SimpleFOC is more than a board and a software in a framework. It is an incredible project that can be applied to any driver system. I’m trying to keep the messages as much I love what you’ve done.
