    Flexible system integration


    Quantum MP is a modern packaged DC drive that has unparalleled flexibility through the integration of Control Techniques' AC control platform on a DC drive. The Quantum MP inherits system integration flexibility such as:

    Two open SM Option Module slots for automation control, I/O, feedback devices and communications

    Smartcard for PLC program and parameter storage

    Software tools for easy configuration and monitoring


    Additional features include:

    Patented (pending) galvanic isolation protects control circuits against poor quality industrial power supplies and high               voltage circuitry

    Powerful onboard intelligence fine-tunes the drive’s functionality to the application and allows the removal of troublesome       analog control circuits

    Fieldbus options include Ethernet, Profibus and DeviceNet allowing Quantum MP to be integrated within an automation           system

    CTSoft, a windows-based software package, provides an intuitive environment for configuring the drive's functionality

    Quantum MP integrates closely with Control Techniques AC drives using CTNet drive-to-drive communications


    Technology for reliability and performance

    Quantum MP takes a step forward in performance, robustness and reliability:

    High performance motor control:

    32-bit microprocessor

    35μs current sampling time

    Speed controller and ramps update 250μs

    Autotune features for armature, field current loops and speed loop

    Galvanic isolation (patent pending) between power and control protects the control circuits and other equipment connected     to the drive from the high voltages on the power circuit. This feature is unique on DC drives

    Protection system against poor industrial power supplies and lightning strikes

    Integrated drive and motor protection for:

    Over current

    Over temperature

    Phase loss

    SCR junction temperature

    Feedback loss

    Field loss

    Armature open circuit


    Flexible field control

    Internal field controller with intelligent field weakening means that 90% of applications require no additional external controller

    Integrated field control on frame size 1 to 8 A

    Integrated field control on frame size 2 to 20 A

    Flux control for enhanced open-loop performance

    External FXMP25 field control to 25 A

    Digital link for field control from Quantum MP or Quantum III

    Standalone digital control mode for simple applications

    Flux control for enhanced open-loop performance

    Intelligent field weakening

    Field forcing - for high dynamic machine reversal

    Field reversal - low dynamic machine reversing using two quadrant main stack
