Gen4 Size2 48V 275A PMAC

The Sevcon Gen4 Motor controller combines over 50 years of expertise into a robust, reliable and proven motor controller which is highly configurable to a number of application functions. The unit is air-cooled and offers one of the most compact solutions for a motor controller of its powerband. The 48V Gen4 Size2 variant can provide a peak current output of 275A. The unit supports regenerative braking to reduce power consumption. 

Recommended Applications:

The Gen4 range of motor controllers can be used across a wide range of applications, for example:

  • Ideal for traction applications such as mopeds and go-carts, motorbikes, city cars, forklift trucks and aerial work platforms.
  • Separate operating modes allow for the unit to act as a fully-fledged VCU master or as a simple torque slave unit.
  • Sevcon Pump Application technology allows the unit to drive a pump motor.
  • Specialist support for safety-critical power steer applications.

Communication:

The Sevcon Gen4 range supports configuration, calibration, control and status monitoring over a CAN bus using the industry-standard CANopen protocol. In order to support a wide range of applications, the unit is able to be configured as either an NMT master or slave device.

Gen4 controllers can be configured to support limited compatibility with a J1939 bus.

To take full advantage of the features of CAN communication on a Sevcon product, an IXXAT CAN to USB device with Sevcon DVT Software subscription will be required.
