ODrive Pro Documentation

Welcome to the ODrive Pro Beta documentation homepage!


Firmware, software, and documentation is intended for use with ODrive motor controllers purchased from odriverobotics.com. ODrive Robotics does not sell products through any channel other than odriverobotics.com. We do not provide support for ODrives purchased elsewhere.

Notes regarding ODrive Pro beta phase


Please note that ODrive Pro does not include a brake resistor feature. A separate power handling module will be available later. Until then, if you wish to do electric braking (needed for most applications) you will need to use a battery.

During the ODrive Pro beta phase it is recommended that you use the development version of odrivetool. Some features of the release version may not work as expected. You can install the development version with python3 -m pip install --pre --upgrade odrive. See Install odrivetool for more detailed instructions.
