Motor Fault and Stall Conditions

I am testing the motor fault, stall and status routines in my C++ library. I found the message about stall reporting at 5 seconds and reset at 2 seconds. (Info on on_motor_stall_notify for RVR?). I can see this in operatoin.

I cannot see either motor fault notification or thermal protection, despite driving the stalled motor temps to higher than I liked.

What temperatur is the thermal protection limit for the motors?

What will cause a motor fault?

Motor fault is indicated when one of the H-bridges enters thermal shutdown. It’s exceedingly rare and generally requires high ambient temperatures and full sun.

You’ll see a thermal warning at 74C motor temperature, and the motors will be disabled for cooldown at the critical temperature of 84C.
