Mentor MP

High performance DC drive solution platform

Mentor MP

cULus Listed25 A – 7,400 A (5 hp – 6,500 hp)

460 V | 575 V | 690 V

 

Mentor MP brings DC drive technology up to date, enabling existing and new DC motors to provide economic and productive service. DC drive technology remains cost effective, efficient and is relatively simple to implement.

For new applications, DC provides many advantages, especially for regenerative and high-power applications.

  • Video
  • Features
    Flexible system integration

    Mentor MP is a modern DC drive based on Control Techniques' current AC drive technology. This means that Mentor MP inherits the system integration flexibility, such as:

    • Three option module slots for automation control, I/O, feedback devices and communications
    • SmartCard for PLC program and parameter storage
    • Software tools for easy configuration and monitoring

    Technology for reliability and performance

    Mentor MP takes a step forward in performance, robustness and reliability:

    • High performance motor control:
    • Galvanic isolation (patent pending) between power and control protects the control circuits and other equipment connected to the drive from the high voltages on the power circuit. This feature is unique on DC drives
    • Protection system against poor industrial power supplies and lightning strikes
    • Integrated drive and motor protection for:

    Flexible field control

    Internal field controller with intelligent field weakening means that  90% of applications require no additional external controller:

    • Integrated field control on frame size 1 to 8 A
    • Integrated field control on frame size 2 to 20 A
    • Flux control for enhanced open-loop performance
    • External FXMP25 field control to 25 A 

    Easy upgrade

    Mentor MP has been designed as an easy upgrade for Mentor II. It has the same physical dimensions and power connection layout. Software tools have been developed to easily migrate to the new platform.

  • Specifications
    • Models available for two or four quadrant (regenerative) operation
    • 25 A to 7400 A, 24 V - 480 V | 500 V - 575 V | 500 V - 690 V

    Current ratings

    The power ratings for the 480V, 575V and 690V configurations are shown below.
    The continuous current ratings given are for a maximum ambient temperature of 40°C (104°F) and an altitude of 1000m (3,300ft). For operation at higher temperatures and altitudes de-rating is required. Overload of 150% for 30s is available with ambient temperature of 40°C (104°F) up to a maximum of 10 repetitions per hour.
