Using a cadence sensor or torque sensor as a throttle with a VESC 6 Trampa Boards

Hello,

I built an e-bike using a VESC 6 from Trampa Boards, and I initially used a regular thumb throttle. Now I' d like to replace it with a cadence sensor or a torque sensor, but I can't find any documentation on what connectors or signals they use (and hence what I would need to make them work with a VESC 6). If you have any information on cadence or torque sensors please let me know! For context, my VESC 6 takes a ppm signal via a 3-way JST PH connector, and has a COMM port for analogue signals. Here is a diagram from the website (just scroll down a bit to see all ports: VESC 6 MkV TRAMPA (trampaboards.com)

Thanks!

Ugo

You can use the PAS mode input instead  of pwm ?
