Greenville, DE — The DVC series motor controllers from Advanced Motion Controls are digital four-quadrant servo drives purpose-designed and built to operate today's modern mobile electric vehicular platforms. Providing high power from battery supplies, the DVC series features a compact design, IP65 construction and multiple operating modes for controlling either permanent magnet brushed or brushless motors. Whether for traction / propulsion, steering, lifting or any other electrically driven actuation, the DVC series is the newest member in a long line of successful motor controlling solutions from Advanced Motion Controls.
The ability to maximize battery life and extend vehicle operations, essentially running 'lean and mean', is the key to keeping a vehicle operating at peak performance. With unmatched power density, high efficiency, low weight, cool thermal operation and regen all built in, selecting the DVC series is the obvious choice.
The DVC Series motor controllers operate in torque, velocity, or position mode and provide high power from battery supplies with multiple operating modes for either 3Φ (servo, closed loop vector, or closed loop stepper) or 1Φ motors. The DVC Series communicate over CANopen and are configured with AMC’s DriveWare? 7 configuration software.
Specific applications include: mobile robots, AGV’s, UGV’s, material handling and transport vehicles in both industrial and military environments.
