Servo drives and motor controllers for brushed motors control the current supplied as well as position and velocity. Compared to traditional voltage control of brushed motors, current control protects the motor coils from overheating and when paired with a feedback device the position and speed control can provide an outstanding accuracy and precision. Ingenia range of off-the-shelf brushed dc servo drives support the most common motion control communication buses like EtherCAT and CANopen as well as serial communications like RS232 and RS485. Explore our range of standard and custom servo drives for controlling brushed motors and find the right solution to your application.
Brushed motor controllers output a voltage proportional to the error of the commanded current to the motor. In this way the current can be controlled precisely. If the brushed motor has an encoder or other sort of feedback available, the motor controller can also close the position and velocity loops as well as generate motion trajectories.
