Nidec SR Drives Ltd has comprehensive
expertise in the design of motor drives for a range of applications
in the Appliance and Consumer drive areas. This expertise encompasses
permanent magnet and induction motor technologies as well as
our own SR Drive® switched reluctance
drives cover a range of applications which are extremely diverse,
and different motor technologies will be best suited to differing
requirements. However, all of these applications will share
one common requirement - low cost!
Our engineers are expert at analysing and specifying requirements,
at selecting the optimal motor technology, and at designing
cost-effective drive systems to add real value to the application. As
well as the design of drive prototypes, we are able to guide
the project right through the pre-production process. Our
designers work alongside both motor and electronics assembly
plants in preparing the design for production, ensuring
that the system as a whole is optimised.
We have expertise in many motor
technologies, from simple brush-less DC motors to complex sinusoidally
optimised machines. Our
electronics controls cover a range of power and voltage levels. We
select micro-processors from several state-of-the-art families,
and develop software ranging from simple fixed-speed motor
controls to complex self-tuning algorithms and sensorless techniques.
