DC Drives, MENTOR MP Series

Mentor MP DC Drive, 240/480 VAC Input 420 Amps Output

 

Mentor MP is Control Techniques’ 5th generation DC drive and integrates the control platform from the world’s leading intelligent AC drive, Unidrive SP. This makes Mentor MP the most advanced DC drive available, giving optimum performance and flexible system interfacing capability.

 
Note: – Mentor MP has been engineered as an easy replacement for Mentor II. With the same footprint it is so easy to migrate to the new Mentor MP platform!

Greater motor field control

  • Built in field controller as standard
  • Gives excellent field control for the majority of DC motors
  • Reduces the need for external components

Enhanced field control with FXMP25 (Optional Extra)

  • The FXMP25 may be controlled digitally by using a standard RJ45 connection, allowing set-up by standard drive parameters
  • The FXMP25 can also function in standalone mode using its integrated keypad and display

Enhanced system design

  • The heatsink cooling fans are intelligently controlled and only run when required, thus increasing reliability and reducing maintenance
  • Eighteen different option modules allow customisation of the drive, including fieldbus, Ethernet, I/O, extra feedback devices and motion controllers
  • The drive system designer is able to embed automation and motion control within the drive, eliminating communications delays that reduce performance

Fast set-up, configuration and monitoring

  • Quick and easy to set-up
  • Can be configured using optional removable keypads
  • Advanced autotune features help you get the best performance from your machine
  • PC software and Smartcard tools for rapid commissioning
  • Intelligent networked system with CTNet
  • Program inbuilt controller with SyPTLite
  • Develop tailored solutions for applications modules with SyPTPro
  • Option modules for all common Industrial Ethernet, fieldbus networks

Retro-fit projects

  • Easy integration with your existing motor, power supply, application equipment and communication networks has been ensured from the design stage
  • Mentor MP brings performance and possibilities to your application with minimum migration costs

Ease of migration

  • Mentor MP has been designed so existing Mentor II customers can easily migrate to the new platform
  • All power terminal locations and mounting points have been retained
  • Mentor MP has a much smaller frame size than the 900 A Mentor II with paralleling options to offer high power density
  • CT Soft has a built in migration wizard to assist with the transfer of drive parameters and programs
  • Smaller cable requirements make connections within the cubical easier. Construction of a custom-made bus-bar is not required

Motor Field Control

  • Built in field controller as standard in every Mentor MP
    • Gives excellent field control for the majority of DC motors
    • Reduces the need for external components

An external motor field controller is recommended when:

  • The required field current is greater than that offered by the standard drive, up to 25 A. For example, older motors with low field voltages
  • The field is required to be forced down more quickly than is possible with a standard half controlled field bridge
  • Applications can be implemented with simple field current reversal, without armature reversal, if machine dynamics can still be met
 
Drives and Automation are an authorised distributor for Control Techniques/Nidec Products. Not only can we sell you the Drive you require, we can also service and repair it if required.
