RoboteQ’s MBL1660A is a high-current, features-packed motor controller capable of driving one brushless DC motor up to 60V and 120A. The controller can operate in Trapezoidal mode or Sinusoidal mode with Field Oriented Control (FOC). Several sensors types are supported in order to detect the rotor position and sequence power to the motors' 3 windings in order to generate smooth continuous rotation. The controller can drive sensorless motors in trapezoidal mode.
The motor may be operated in open or closed loop speed mode, position mode or in torque mode. The MBL1660A features an Analog, and several Digital and Pulse I/Os which can be remapped as command or feedback inputs, limit switches, or many other functions. The MBL1660A accepts commands received from an RC radio, Analog potentiometer, wireless modem, or microcomputer. Using CAN bus, up to 127 controllers can be networked at up to 1Mbit/s on a single twisted pair.
The controller's operation can be extensively automated and customized using Basic Language scripts. The controller can be configured, monitored and tuned in realtime using a RoboteQ’s free PC utility. The controller can also be reprogrammed in the field with the latest features by downloading new operating software from RoboteQ.
