BOHEMIA, N.Y. – Data Device Corp. (DDC) in Bohemia, N.Y., is introducing the high-power-density 80-volt, 30-amp MC-5000 series BLDC high-reliabilitymotor controller for single axis, point-of-load unmanned vehicle and other military applications.

The digital-signal-processing family of programmable, turnkey motor controllers designed to precisely control the position, torque, and speed of 3-phase BLDC motors.

Applications include unmanned vehicle electric drives and thrusters, autonomous guided vehicles, pump control, electric actuators, electric valve control, fuel pumps, industrial robotics, antenna and camera position control, and medical diagnostics control.

The devices operates in temperatures from -40 to 105 degrees Celsius, and is available in configurations to support motors that use a Hall sensor for torque and speed control, or absolute PWM and incremental encoder feedback for position control.

The device is configurable through the provided CANopen control interface, and can be programmed, via a graphical user interface (GUI), enabling it to work with a wide variety of brushless DC motors and loads.

Its programmability enables users to tune key system parameters to optimize performance during development, and reprogrammed for use with additional applications and motors.

The MC-5000’s single-module design provides size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-C) savings by combining control and power amplification into one solution, minimizing output losses and eliminating the need for a second printed circuit board and interface.
