3Ø Flexible DC drive
Mentor MP is Control Techniques' 5th generation DC drive and integrates the control platform from the worlds leading intelligent AC drive, Unidrive SP. This makes Mentor MP the most advanced DC drive available, giving optimum performance and flexible system interfacing capability.
Upgrading your control system
There are large numbers of DC motors in service throughout the world in various applications, the majority of which are easily capable of providing continued service. Upgrading your drive allows you to maximize the motor performance, enhance system reliability and interface digitally with modern control equipment using Ethernet and Fieldbus networks. Downtime is minimized as only the drive needs to be replaced.
Driving forward with DC technology
DC drive technology remains cost effective, efficient and is relatively simple to implement. For new solutions DC provides many advantages, especially for regenerative and high power applications.
Our extensive expertise across a wide range of industries mean that we are the ideal partner for DC solutions.
