Autoclavable BLDC motor controller improves performance

A new autoclavable brushless DC motor controller has been introduced by Portescap, the CNT1530, for driving large bone orthopedic handpiece motors. The controller leverages Portescap´s autoclavable design capability and surgical application expertise to provide a reliable, customisable solution to the orthopedic market.

This new controller will help improve surgical hand tool´s performance and reliability, and take applications to market sooner.

The CNT1530 controller utilises on-board Hall Effect sensors – the magnetic actuation of speed and direction provided by this design delivers exceptional reliability due to a lack of mechanical components.

In addition, the electronic components are encapsulated in a silicone potting material within an aluminium housing, which provides protection of the circuit board from the harsh environments of sterilisation washers and autoclaves.

The controller is compatible with a range of input voltages allowing for use with multiple battery types. A small form factor enables designers to house the controller within a tool’s pistol grip to create exceptionally ergonomic designs.

The new BLDC controller is compatible with Portescap’s Large Bone Orthopedic motors. Customisation is available for partners needing tailored solutions.
