37-Pin DSUB Cable for the Power Electronics Lab - 541-2642-ND
Vishay Dale's 75771 cable connects the inverter board to the dSPACE CLP1104's interface board. It is responsible for the control signals required for controlling the two inverters on the inverter board to conduct several experiments in the Power Electronics Lab, based on the approach in the textbook Power Electronics: Converters, Applications and Design, written by Ned Mohan, Tore M. Undeland, and William P. Robbins; and the Electric Drives Lab based on the approach in the textbook Electric Machines and Drives: A First Course by Ned Mohan.
8-Pin Encoder Cable for the Power Electronics Lab - 541-2643-ND
Vishay Dale's 87784 cable connects the encoder output from Motorsolver's 10-pole BLDC machines to the dSPACE CLP1104's interface board to conduct experiments in the Power Electronics Lab, based on the approach in the textbook Power Electronics: Converters, Applications and Design, written by Ned Mohan, Tore M. Undeland, and William P. Robbins; and the Electric Drives Lab, based on the approach in the textbook Electric Machines and Drives: A First Course by Ned Mohan.
Power-Pole FPGA Controller Assembly for the Power Electronics Lab - 541-2644-ND
The FPGA-based control PCA (printed circuit assembly) is a standalone controller for performing experiments in the Power Electronics Lab. The Controller is equipped with an analog/digital interface compatible to the Power-Pole PCA to facilitate various PWM control functions without requiring the use of an interfacing PC.
