Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor (PMSM) Controller Released

We are pleased to announce the production launch of a new variant of the Sigmadrive, identified as PMS within our range of motor controllers. Permanent Magnet Synchronous motor technology (sometimes called PMAC) is Brushless and is very interesting for many applications. PMS motors are much lighter and more compact than standard Asynchronous motors and have the same “maintenance free” advantages. Due to the internal rotor mounted magnets, PMS motors also have a significant efficiency improvement, typically greater than 92%, over Asynchronous motors.

Details on available models can be found in the main menu under > Speed Controllers > PMS.
