Portescap DC Motor Controller Provides Reliable, Customized Solution
March 6, 2018
Portescap introduces a new autoclavable Brushless DC motor controller, the CNT1530, for driving large bone orthopedic handpiece motors. The controller leverages Portescap´s autoclavable design capability and surgical application expertise to provide a reliable, customizable solution to the orthopedic market. This new controller will help improve your surgical hand tool´s performance and reliability, and take your application to market sooner. The CNT1530 controller utilizes on-board hall effect sensors - the magnetic actuation of speed and direction provided by this design delivers exceptional reliability due to a lack of mechanical components. In addition, the electronic components are encapsulated in a silicone potting material within an aluminum housing, which provides protection of the circuit board from the harsh environments of sterilization washers and autoclaves. The controller is compatible with a range of input voltages allowing for use with multiple battery types. A small form factor enables designers to house the controller within a tool´s pistol grip to create exceptionally ergonomic designs. The new BLDC controller is compatible with Portescap´s Large Bone Orthopedic motors. Customization is available for partners needing tailored solutions.
