boundmotor esc setup help

Just swapped out my 2 dead focboxes for a boundmotor esc. I finished setting everything up but when I throttle the remote the motor just jerks and whines doesn’t move. Any help would be appreciated.

The hall sensor wires are in wrong order

Dunno how they in wrong order they only plug in one way?

What motor do u have

You are setting up FOC instead of BLDC, right?

Check the position of the switches under the hall sensor port.

Ground is usually black, but I have seen some fuckery in these parts. This ESC is the same as the esk8supply one.

always check your pin-outs prior to plugging cables in.

and there is also no standard pin layout

Same! I spent 20 minutes scratching my head before I realized the pin layout wasn’t standard.

So I just gotta switch those wire according to this diagram?

if everything was working previously on ur OG focbox, then just switch the cables according to the diagram

also make sure those cables are snug in the tabs, they are pain in the ass to work with.

@frame.b022 @M.Hboards @BillGordon

any of you guys cook any hardware with the pins not in the correct place?

I seem to remember somebody (claiming) cooking a VESC or something because all the pins on the sensors were mal-confucted…

Switched wires ran setup again in foc, dunno if this looks right.

Nothing fried by me.
