Portescap Introduces LVD Low-Voltage Servo Drive

Portescap introduces LVD Low-Voltage Servo Drive for small and large brushed DC or brushless motors.

Portescap introduces LVD Low-Voltage Servo Drive for small and large brushed DC or brushless motors. Packed in a high power-density package, LVD is powered from a supply voltage of 12-48VDC, and is capable of 7Amps RMS continuous and 12Amps RMS peak current with CANopen communication interface.


LVD offers extensive functionality with multiple I/O inputs and can be operated in Current, Velocity or Position modes. The drive operates at a voltage range of 12V to 48V and supports both BLDC and DC motors. Thanks to its selectable switching frequency, it also supports low inductance motors, making it an ideal drive for a wide variety of applications including surveillance cameras, semiconductor wafer handling processes, highly-sensitive medical applications and more.

LVD offers performance and accuracy thanks to its space vector modulation current loop and highly flexible tuning capabilities. In addition, LVD offers high sampling rates for the Velocity and Position loops, allowing wider bandwidth and increased accuracy.

Measuring only 117 x 83.5 x 21.5mm and weighing only 250g, the LVD is one of the smallest low-voltage drives. However, its small scale does not represent the power versatility that it can offer. With 12Amps RMS peak current and switching frequency of up to 100 KHz, LVD is also one of the most powerful low voltage drives in the industry, offering space efficiencies without compromising on performance.

Seamless configuration with Axis Manager- LVD's Axis Manager is an easy to use drive commissioning software. It features user friendly windows for motor and feedback configuration, various control loops tuning, I/O setup window, and comprehensive monitoring and recording features. The software communicates with the drive via RS232 or CANopen.

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

The BLE2 Series replaces our popular BLE Series and continues our brushless motor advantages by featuring an all new compact, high-power and high-efficiency brushless DC motor combined with a Driver that can be digitally set and controlled via external DC voltage or by the front panel. The BLE2 Series can easily compete with larger 3-phase inverter driven motors in many more applications, with built-in simple holding torque function, saving space and increasing performance thanks to the advantages of a brushless motor design. The BLE2 Series has a maximum speed of 4000 r/min, achieving a speed ratio of 1:50 (80 to 4000 r/min). The new motor structure is small than previous models and enables high power and high efficiency while incorporating easy setting, installation and wiring. The new motor connector offers IP66 degree of protection and allows for easy and direct connection between motor and driver with two available orientation of cable outlet direction.
