Helping Make Your Robot Mobile...

Mobile Robots need two motors to move and steer, and only Roboteq can make this work with a single controller. Compared to the traditional One Motor/One Controller approach, the Dual Channel is simpler, cheaper, easier to integrate and maintain.

Motors are coordinated within the controllers, resulting in superior and safer drive characteristics.

Always Ready for the Unexpected

Much of the functionality of Roboteq's controllers is never used. However, that unused functionality is there because we all know that eventually “what can go wrong, will go wrong”. From excessive amps to over/under voltage, short-circuits to feedback breakdown, the unexpected is no match for Roboteq's family of Motor Controllers!

Never Loses its Cool

High power at low voltage means high current. High current means heat. And excessive heat means trouble! Ultra-high efficiency MOSFET field-effect transistors, high current terminals & wiring, and innovative cooling techniques are just some of the technologies Roboteq utilizes to make our controllers among the coolest running for their size.

Field & Battle Proven Quality

Roboteq controllers have demonstrated durability through rigorous factory life tests and years of operation inside thousands of user applications. However, nothing illustrates our product's toughness quite like this badly bruised unit. It was subjected to absolute brutality while surviving 200+ battlebot fights, during which the robot was regularly hammered, rammed into, and thrown up to 3m in the air!

Enjoy the Silence and Efficiency of Sine

 

Brushless motor controllers work by creating a rotating magnetic field inside the motor’s coils. The rotor’s magnets then follow to cause rotation. In addition to the common, coarse, 6-step Trapezoidal rotation, Roboteq’s controllers are capable of the more refined and quieter running 512-step Sinusoidal rotation. Thanks to advanced Field Oriented Control (FOC), the motor is always operating at optimal efficiency.

All Rotor Sensor Types – Even no sensor

Knowing the Rotor’s position in real-time is essential for making it turn smoothly and efficiently. We support practically all known rotor sensor types from the most common to the most accurate. No sensor? No problem! We also support sensorless operation.

AC Induction Motor Controllers

AC Induction motors are industry workhorses thanks to their simple and inexpensive construction. They are commonly used in traction for electric vehicles. AC Induction motors are being used increasingly in robotics and automation applications thanks to advanced electronic controls. Roboteq offers a growing line of single and dual channel Variable Frequency Drives for AC Induction motors, ranging from 60A to 500A per channel. Just match the voltage and current rating using our Product Tables below, or the Product Finder.

Ideal for Small EV's and Heavy Robots

biginduction

AC Induction motors are among the simplest to interface. This is due to their only requiring a 3-wire connection to operate in their most basic mode. More efficient control can be achieved using advanced algorithems, such as Field Oritented Control (FOC).

Roboteq controllers can be used with practically any AC Induction motor within the specified Power and Voltage range.

 

 

Guaranteed to Work with Your AC Motor

Four drive modes are available, ranging from the simplest Scalar to the most complex Field Oriented Control modes. Operating your motor will be a plug and play experience. Expert tools and support will allow you to fine tune and get the most of your motor.

Mode Feedback Description Advantages/Disadvantages
Scalar / VpH None Simple, open-loop mode where Voltage and Frequency change together at a fixed ratio

Pro: Simplest, always works with any motor

Con: Inefficient with variable load

Controlled Slip Encoder Closed loop mode that adjusts Voltage vs Frequency to keep slip within optimal range

 Pro: Simple. Efficient, Easy to tune

Con: Not optimal. Speed control only

FOC - Torque Control Encoder  Efficient Closed Loop Torque mode that uses Field Oriented Control

 Pro: Most efficient

Con: Complex tuning

FOC - Speed Control Encoder  Efficient Closed Loop Speed mode that uses Field Oriented Control

Pro: Most efficient
