The High Voltage Motor Control Kit with InstaSPIN™ technology provides a great reference platform to learn and experiment with digital control of high voltage motors, utilizing the revolutionary InstaSPIN-FOC and InstaSPIN-MOTION motor control technologies included on Texas Instruments’ C2000™ InstaSPIN 32-bit microcontroller family. With InstaSPIN technology, motor system developers can quickly identify, automatically tune, and fully control a three phase motor, providing an “instantly” stable and functional motor control system. This kit is a superb, all-around motor inverter design tool, showcasing sensorless InstaSPIN field oriented control of the most common types of high voltage, three phase motors—including AC induction (ACI), brushless DC (BLDC), and permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSM and IPM).
