Electronic Speed Controller
An electronic speed control (ESC) is an electronic circuit that controls and regulates the speed of an electric motor.
I’ve used this 30A ESC for a Drone (see image below), but ESCs are really used for everything.
- So essentially, you have the signal as a PWM that tells how fast you want the motor to go
- The 5V and Ground can be used to power an arduino that is connected,
- Other are used to power Brushless Motor
“ODrive targets itself towards servo and robotics applications, while VESC is very popular for things like DIY electric skateboard builds”.
