BLDC Motor Controller

Taurus C60

The Taurus C60 is a high power, high efficiency BLDC motor controller that speaks in more than just pulses! This controller implements full FOC/SVPWM for highly efficient operation up to 6kW peak power and provides isolated CAN 2.0 and RS-485 communications, giving you more feedback and control of your propulsion system. All of this in an IP67 package with robust connector interfaces.

Product Information
Overview
Efficient High Power

The Taurus implements full four quadrant Field Oriented Control (FOC) through Space Vector Pulse Width Modulation (SVPWM) to achieve exceptional motor controller efficiency in the nominal operating range. The controller also supports overmodulation to maximize peak power output of the motor drive. The C60 variant of the Taurus design is designed for IP67, and the following key performance capabilities:

  • Up to 14S (58.8V) operation
  • ±100A Peak Operation (60s)
  • ±70A Continuous Operation
Highly Flexible Design

The Taurus supports various hardware interfaces for communication as well as commutation and alignment support. These interfaces can be used for simple comms, or configurations with pitch control servos, etc. The entire software stack for the Taurus is built on the available source licensed allocore SDK, allowing fully tailored applications for customer control, comms, and other needs.

  • Isolated CAN 2.0 Comms
  • Isolated RS-485 Comms
  • Hall/QEP Sensor interfaces
Advanced Control

Four quadrant control around a 40KHz current control loop allows custom fast closed-loop control on speed, torque, voltage, power, or other more advanced modes.

Make Your Motors Smarter

Fixed mapping sensorless open-loop PWM throttle based ESCs are a thing of the past. The Taurus motor controller enables customized control loops and tuning, along with bi-directional communications to give your system more advanced control and monitoring. Taurus adds in sensored motor capabilities for slow-speed and alignment/parking support.

Hybrid Generation

Four quadrant control means the Taurus controller supports full regen capabilities. Not only does this mean active regenerative braking, but moreover, the Taurus C60 can be mated with a generator system to provide the basis of a hybrid electric powertrain.

Customization Available

The Taurus hardware IP has been tailored to various custom packages, including winglets, booms, etc. Additionally, implementations for lower voltage/power have also been realized. Contact allocortech to get more information on customization
