Achieve fast and accurate over-current detection using optically coupled sigma-delta modulators
In an industrial motor control system, sensing and feedback of various parameters such as motor phase, DC bus current and voltage, torque, direction, and speed are required for proper operation of the system. As the trend of the system moves towards higher precision, power, speed, multi-axis, and multi-directional, these requirements become increasingly important. As the motor encoder measures the torque, speed, and direction, the sigma-delta modulator provides high accuracy, high linearity, wide dynamic range, fast-response current, and voltage sensing.
