First question asked Welcome!

Hello,

I am new to Infineon so pardon for asking basic questions.

(1) Does iMotion IMC controller supports Safe Torque Off (STO), putting motor into a coast to stop state when in fault?

(2) Or does it do a control deceleration to stop?

(3) Once stopped in an idle state, a drive is normally powered to maintain its position. Can IMC be set to disconnect power, so the rotor can free rotate?

 

HARDWARE:  IMC301A-F064 and EVAL-M1-05-65D power board. 

Best Regards,

Peter

Hi

1) iMOTION controller provides gate kill fault which can be used to turn-OFF the motor when the current/torque is more than application specified limit.

2) Controlled deceleration will not be performed, the rotor rotates freely. Motor can be stopped suddenly using zero vector braking mechanism.

3) When disconnected iMOTION doesn't maintain position and the rotor rotates freely.

Best Regards
