Portescap now sells an autoclavable Brushless DC motor controller — the CNT1530 — for driving large bone orthopedic handpiece motors. The controller leverages Portescap’s market leading autoclavable design capability and surgical application expertise to provide a reliable, customizable setup to the orthopedic market. This new controller will help improve surgical hand tool’s performance and reliability, and take application to market sooner.
The CNT1530 controller uses 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 aluminum housing, which provides protection of the circuit board from the harsh environments of sterilization 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. Customization is available for partners needing tailored setups.
