The MBL1660A is enabled for sensorless control, Hall sensors will not be required to drive a BLDC motor with this controller. This version of the MBL is also equipped with Field Oriented Control and will measure motor current as well as battery current to give more accurate and stable torque control and sinusoidal control.
Roboteq's MBL1660 is a high-current controller for hall-sensor equipped Brushless DC motors. The controller uses the position information from the sensors to sequence power on the motor's 3 windings in order to generate smooth continuous rotation. The controller also uses the Hall sensor or encoder input information to compute speed and measure travelled distance inside a 32-bit counter. The motor may be operated in open or closed loop speed mode.
The MBL1660 accepts commands received from an RC radio, Analog Joystick, wireless modem, or microcomputer. Using CAN bus, up to 127 controllers can be networked on a single twisted pair. Numerous safety features are incorporated into the controller to ensure reliable and safe operation.
The controller's operation can be extensively automated and customized using Basic Language scripts. The controller can be configured, monitored and tuned in realtime using a Roboteq's free PC utility. The controller can also be reprogrammed in the field with the latest features by downloading new operating software from Roboteq.
