Figure 8 in the IMC301 software manual shows leg shunts (low side of the bridge) for phases A,B and C.

Does the control algorithm support in-line current sensors on the motor  wire ( output of the bridge) for Phases A,B and C?

Thanks 

Shiraz

Hi @shirazmacuff,

iMotion MCE presently doesn't support in-line current sensing. Could you please modify your sensing to be either Single shunt or leg shunt measurement Could you please share your schematics?

 

Thanks,

Krupashankar

Hi @shirazmacuff,

iMotion MCE supports Single Shunt and Leg Shunt current measurement. Could you please let us know why you want to use in-line current measurement and share your application need?

 

Thanks,

Krupashankar,

We are would like to design-in the IMC301 on a controller card upgrade. The remaining sections  (power stage and sensing ) has to remain untouched for the most part.

Thanks for your help

Shiraz
