Motor controllers for mobility applications
A range of power options to support different functions
We understand that the power requirements for mobility applications can vary widely. Whether it’s the main driver you need or control for additional features we can help. We can even incorporate all of your project requirements onto one main control and drive board.
It is possible that some of our stock range of motors and controllers may be able to help in these types of applications but it is more likely that a custom option will be the best solution. Customised options enable us to deliver more power, work the design around your project scope and also incorporate any additional safety and control features you might need.
Brushless DC is an increasingly popular option for mobility applications
Brushless DC motors are increasingly popular in mobility applications for a number of reasons.
Firstly, they are the most efficient motors in terms of power density (broadly meaning that the power/area of the motor delivers the most power of any motor type). Secondly, they can operate at a range of voltages making flexibility a key option for designers. Thirdly, the fact that there is no friction within the motor apart from the bearings means that a well built and controllers brushless DC motor will last a lot longer than brushed DC alternatives.
There are a range of brushless DC control options which can also help – sensorless control is one of these options, four quadrant control can enable actively controlled deceleration and acceleration without the need of brakes and constant speed or torque enable reliable performance over uncertain terrain.
Everything you need - all in one control board
If you would like us to do we can incorporate all of the features required for your project into the one control board. This provides a turnkey solution to get your project moving quickly and make assembly and testing quick and simple.
We can work with your CAD design team to ensure all the relevant inputs, outputs and mounting holes are located exactly where you need them. This makes assembling the final product quick and easy and can also help make the final product more ergonomic and efficient.
Motor controllers optimised to deliver power when you need it and save it when you don't
Saving power means extending the range or performance. That’s why we make it our priority to deliver the best performing motor controllers we can. Build quality and component selection is certainly a part of how we do this. However, our experience working in these applications is also a huge part of the reason we are able to deliver the most efficient solutions possible.
