DMC-1600 compact PCI bus and DMC-1700 ISA bus controllers include sinusoidal commutation for brushless motors as a standard feature. This enables the controller to generate current command signals. Sinusoidal commutation controls the motor in a manner that minimizes power dissipation. Output signals vary gradually, resulting in smoother motion, especially when applied to linear motors.
