- UPCX530 Power Board -
More powerful board for BLDC- and DC- Servomotors
This project is based on a work done by Lawrence Glaister VE7IT, Maximilien Mousset and other developers mentioned within the source code and also on Microchips application note AN957.
The project goal was to develop a more powerful and suitable control board for my 4 axis CNC mill. The mill is driven by 300W DC-servomotors but the board is also suitable for BLDC-servomotos.
In contrast to the demoboard for the UPCX530, this board has the following characteristics:
- The maximum operation voltage for the motor is 80V
- Motor phase current: 12A or 16A, depending on copper layer thickness
- Separate power supply for the motor / logic (5V) and FET-drivers (12V)
- The ability to connect RS422 encoders and decoders for use further away from the motors
The PCB is based on the UPCX530 controller. Details are available here.
