One of the most important troubleshooting tools is CSV logs. CSV are simply “Comma Separated Value” text files that can be loaded into any spreadsheet tool, or also into the VESC Tool desktop app.
Where to find it
Bottom of the screen on the first page of the mobile app
You have to select a folder that you can access from your email or other apps, so make sure you pick one that’ll work. You also may need to give the app permission to write files / to that folder
How to enable/write
Check the checkbox to start, uncheck to end/close the file, check again to start a new file
Pro tip: keep the files short, try not to log for endless minutes it’ll only make the files huge and harder to find the problem, at the minimum stop the logging right after a problem happens
- How to interpret/use
Once you send the file to a PC you can either open it in Excel/OpenOffice/GoogleSheets and then graph any of the columns.
For many it may be easier to open the file in the VESC Tool, just look for “Log Analysis” on the left/bottom and then look for the “OpenCSV” button
You can only create CSV logs from the mobile apps, you can only view/analyze CSV files on the PC app!
