International Rectifier (El Segundo, CA) released the IRMCT3UF1 fully integrated high-reliability hybrid motor control modules enabling digital, sensor-free vector control of permanent magnet motors. The module combines digital control, analog interface, and power stage. Speed and torque control are provided with commutation or position sensors. Sinusoidal current control enables current startup sequencing and low loss space vector pulse-width modulation. EMI is suppressed. The unit’s algorithm accommodates motor parameter variation for compatibility with brushless DC and permanent magnet AC motors.
