Hi

Im wondering that can imc101t be use for cnc axis control application? CNC axis control needs smooth drive at low speed and also needs high torque at low speeds. For example when using sensorless control , would imc101t can handle this application ? Or do infineon has a proper product for this application ?

thanks

Hi

imc101t is not suitable for precision control applications. 

Infineon XMC range of controllers can be used in CNC applications.

In sensorless mode it would be difficult to achieve high precision position control.

The Applications tab in the following link provides some insights into CNC applications

Yes, the Infineon iMC101T series products, including the iMC101T-T038, iMC101T-F048, iMC101T-F064, and iMC101T-Q048, are suitable for CNC axis control applications. These products are part of Infineon's iMOTION integrated motor control family, which is designed to control permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSM) and brushless DC motors (BLDC). They are highly integrated solutions that include all digital and analog components required for inverterized drives, making them ideal for motor control applications.

The iMC101T series products are based on the Motion Control Engine (MCE) 2.0, which is a field-proven computation engine for high-efficiency sinusoidal motor control. The MCE 2.0 provides sensorless field-oriented control (FOC) for PMSM, which is well-suited for CNC axis control applications that require smooth drive at low speeds and high torque at low speeds.

In sensorless control mode, the iMC101T series products use the motor's back-EMF to estimate the rotor position, which eliminates the need for mechanical sensors. This results in a cost-effective and robust motor control solution that is well-suited for industrial applications, including CNC machines.

Moreover, the iMC101T series products offer flexible host interface/control options, integrated protection features, and multiple motor support with flexible parameter handling. These features make them ideal for CNC axis control applications, where precise motor control and protection against overcurrent and overtemperature are essential.

In summary, the Infineon iMC101T series products are well-suited for CNC axis control applications that require smooth drive at low speeds and high torque at low speeds. They offer a highly integrated motor control solution based on the MCE 2.0, which provides sensorless FOC for PMSM. Additionally, they offer flexible host interface/control options, integrated protection features, and multiple motor support with flexible parameter handling, making them an excellent choice for industrial motor control applications.
