V5 Motor Failure Temperature

I am hoping to be able to write some code that will alert our drivers if any motors near an overheat. What would motor.temperature(percent) be equal to when the motors fail?

I would test this out myself but I am apprehensive of intentionally overheating equipment…


Not sure what the percentage would be (how is temperature returned as a percentage in vexcode???), but motors do start having additional current limits applied at 55C.

okay, thank you!! I’ll just run it in Celsius instead of percent :relaxed:

0% is 20C, 100% is 70C, and it’s a linear scale between them:

I dont believe it is possible to intentionally overheat v5 motors due to the built in software stops, but you can read and print motor temp, as stated above.
