How to select the right motor control design to meet Industry 4.0 requirements

02 June 2023

The era of Industry 4.0 is making systems smarter by providing localised intelligence and connectivity between machines and computers, and to the internet. This era has implications for industrial motors, which comprise much of an automated facility’s energy resources. Their failure can shut down an entire production line.

It follows then that it is critical to control motors effectively, particularly with respect to speed and torque which together greatly impact a motor's dynamic range.

Controlling these two parameters effectively requires a high degree of feedback accuracy.

Therefore, designers need to choose carefully between low-side, high-side, or in-line current sensing, and then optimally implement the appropriate circuitry.
