maxon precision motors' DEC module 24/2 - Model# 367661

The first in a new family of low cost, digital brushless motorcontrollers, the DEC Module is a compact and powerful plug-in moduleincorporating all the elements necessary to drive a sensored brushless dc motorup to 48W. Measuring just 0.95 x 0.80inch the DEC Module can be conveniently mounted onto any printed circuit boardeither by socket terminal strips or by soldering directly onto a printedcircuit board. A complementaryevaluation board is available to facilitate the initial evaluationprocess. The DEC 24/2 plug-in module wasdesigned to eliminate the step of developing a brushless motor controller fromscratch. The proprietary firmware can betailored to address a wide variety of applications. The DEC Module 24/2provides a low cost, easy to integrate, pre-packaged brushless motor controlsolution. The standard 0.100 pitchpinout makes it easy to integrate into any printed circuit board design. More specific, mechanical designers canquickly get their brushless motor up and running without having to design ordevelop their own controller. There area variety utilities and I/O functions, inclusive of set speed values (500 -80,000 rpm), direction, enable and status. There is also a wide range ofprotection features built in; over current, under current, over voltage, undervoltage, thermal overload, current limits, invalid hall sensor and locked rotorprotection to name just a few. Essentially, the DEC module provides a seamless brushless motor controlsolution. A designer can go directlyfrom the evaluation stage to production by simply laying out their printedcircuit board accordingly; thereby bypassing the electronic control developmentstep. Currently there is no control product like the DEC Module 24/2 on themarket to compare it to - this concept is unique. The DEC Module 24/2, and all its I/O andprotection features can be initially evaluated with a complementary evaluationboard. The designer can then chose whichfeatures are desirable for his application and tailor the firmware to hisapplication. The compact footprint, 0.95 x 0.80 inch, conveniently mates(plug-in) with a standard printed circuit board design via socket terminalstrips or by direct soldering onto a printed circuit board.
