Microcontrollers for Inverters and Motor Control

Block Diagram

A major benefit of using an inverter for motor speed control is the energy savings. Inverters can accurately control motors over a wide speed range and keep the motor from stopping and restarting, which drains energy. The MCU is key to controlling the inverter.



  • FM3 family inverter solution

    Use FM3 family "MB9BF506" for inverter control.
    • Inverter control by 180-degree energization
    • PFC (PowerFactorCorrection) control
    • Easy parameter setting, waveform observation through the use of GUI on PC
