Extra high-power pins
Designing smart, safe but simple systems is a real challenge on machines with multiple high-current applications, such as linear actuators, lamps and electric motors. Due to power limitations, a separate controller is typically required to drive each application.
The new Danfoss MC018 high-current controller gives Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) enough power to drive several applications up to a total stable current of 120A with a single controller. Extra high-power pins can also drive a particularly demanding application without compromising the performance of others – and all with noiseless motor control.
As always, safety is a top OEM – and user – priority. To meet this demand, the MC018 has a separate logic power supply for intelligent fault detection. This means the controller is still able to send diagnostic information to the master controller in the event of a short circuit or burnt fuse.
The simplicity and cost of a machine control system depend on the number of components used. With the MC018, OEMs gain better performance with fewer high-current controllers. Together with full PLUS+1® compatibility a fast and easy integration in advanced control systems is ensured – speeding up the time to market.
Benefits for OEMs
Simultaneous control of high-current applications with one controller – saving you the cost of additional controllers
Simpler system design and easy to program with PLUS+1® GUIDE – sending you faster to market and with less time spent on programming
Smoother and quieter motor control – to the benefit of the end user
Safe operation with intelligent fault detection and diagnosis
