Summary

The Motor Control Development System provides the application developer with three main components for quick prototyping and validation of BLDC, PMAC and ACIM applications. The three main components are: dsPICDEM™ MC1 Motor Control Development Board, dsPICDEM MC1L 3-Phase Low Voltage Power Module and dsPICDEM MC1H 3-Phase High Voltage Power Module.

The dsPICDEM MC1 Motor Control Development Board contains the dsPIC30F6010 but supports all dsPIC® Digital Signal Controller (DSC) motor control variances, various peripheral interfaces and a custom interface header system, which allows different motor power modules to be connected to the PCB. The control board also has connectors for mechanical position sensors, such as incremental rotary encoders and hall effect sensors, and a breadboard area for custom circuits. The main control board receives its power from a standard plug-in transformer.

The dsPICDEM MC1L 3-Phase Low Voltage Power Module is optimized for 3-phase motor applications that require a DC bus voltage less than 50 volts and can deliver up to 400W power output. The 3-phase low voltage power module is intended to power BLDC and PMAC motors.

The dsPICDEM MC1H 3-Phase High Voltage Power Module is optimized for 3-phase motor applications that require DC bus voltages up to 400 volts and can deliver up to 1 kW power output. The high voltage module has an active power factor correction circuit that is controlled by the dsPIC30F device. This power module is intended for AC induction motor and power inverter applications that operate directly from the AC line voltage.

Two motors are available that are compatible with the development system.
