Please keep in mind that over the next few weeks we’ll be rolling out updates to our user interface, libraries, and other materials. If you have any feedback or feature requests, please let us know!

Can I use the motor out of the box?

There are a few steps you have to take before using your module. You have to solder wires to your module and connect to the IQ Control Center to initialize it. Please visit our instruction manual for setup details.

For speed modules, you must set a variety of parameters before you can use them. For example, you must set motor direction, FC mode, and control mode. You also have the option to upload pre-made settings for specific applications. For position modules, you should connect to the Control Center and update your desired settings.

What should I do if I have troubleshooting issues?

If our manuals or the FAQ section on our website can’t answer your question, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us through the Crowd Supply website or

NOTE: we have a known bug in the IQ Control Center that we are in the process of fixing. In the “Testing” tab, the coast and brake buttons do not work. Don’t be alarmed, just command 0 PWM or 0 V and your module will stop spinning.

All bugs will appear in our errata document.
