AECS 35/3 sensorless servo-amplifier is engineered for either commutation only or brushless motors, for closed loop velocity through the motor's sensing back-EMF. The servoamplifier requires 8 to 35V dc and provides 3A continuous current or 5A peak current. An internal potentiometer or external voltage controls velocity, which can reach up to 90,000 rpm for 2-pole motors. Measuring 74 x 51 x 20 mm, it weighs 20g and operates in a temperature range of 32 to 104F.
