Radford, Va. – Kollmorgen’ ACS GEN6 Motor Controllers are the new generation of the company’s highly successful ACS product family. ACS motor controllers are available in a variety of voltages (24, 36, 48, and 80V) and power levels (5-50kVA, 2min) to suit various types and sizes of electric vehicles. Using the latest MOSFET technology in combination with an innovative design concept, the new ACS GEN6 is up to 47% smaller than previous generation controllers, without any change to the power rating.
The latest MOFSET technology is more efficient and robust than its predecessors. Greater efficiency leads to a more compact ACS controller that reduces the requisite number of mechanical components. Greater robustness and fewer components maximizes reliability, while smaller size lets OEMs place the controller more freely within the vehicle to reduce cabling and mounting costs. The net impact for OEMs who use ACS GEN6 motor controllers is maximum reliability with lower total cost of ownership.
ACS GEN6 is the first Kollmorgen product released with Kollmorgen’s new software platform for vehicle motor controllers. The software lets Kollmorgen customize software to meet specific customer requirements, while crucial firmware functionality remains untouched. Improved granularity and adjustability of the event log, as well as advanced logging, are firmware features that bring value to both OEMs and end-users by allowing detailed and accurate troubleshooting information to shorten vehicle downtime and minimize service costs. Additionally, the software is designed to meet the high quality standards of the automotive and hybrid markets, and Kollmorgen’s software development process is regularly audited for conformance to Automotive SPICE©.
The design and manufacturing process of ACS GEN6 controllers ensures maximum product quality. ACS GEN6 has gone through repeated Design For Manufacture (DFM) analyses during the design process to ensure that the product is optimized for stable and consistent manufacturing at high volume. Specialized production equipment tailored to manufacturing ACS GEN6 was developed alongside the actual products to ensure that the production equipment and processes, as well as the product itself, enable low variance production.
