Logic battery says .7v, error light on, still runs fine

Since the new firmware update, my mcp266 has error light always on and the logic battery voltage states .7v. I assume this is not correct as it still operates fine.

Please advise

Re: 6x6 "track steer" garden tractor.

Your going to need bigger than a mcp 266

What are your batteries?
What size is the garden tractor?
I have an RC mower using Ego power plus batteries.
46" cut width. zero turn
The mcp266 is what I use. It's pretty over sized but 60v electronics are hard to come by.
Look forward to seeing it

Re: Robot mower build

Thanks for the reply. I really appreciate your help I measured 8 amps running from a shunt sensor on the battery line to the motors. Then divided by 2. I found a calculator that estimates watts based on over voltaging a motor. It said 1550 or something. Those motors are 48v rated and I'm putting 57v...

Re: Robot mower build
