AC Induction motors (ACIM) are used extensively in industrial applications due to their high durability and economical cost. From consumer to industrial products, ACIMs are used in almost every industrial application and account for more than half of the total consumed Industrial energy. Therefore, motor efficiency using sophisticated electronic control has become crucial.

With increasing strict regulations and growing demand for high energy savings, industrial drives systems can use onsemi’s innovative product portfolio of MOSFETs, IGBTs, intelligent power modules (IPM), and power integrated modules (PIMS) to achieve high efficiency. In contrast, our high-precision analog technology helps achieve accurate speed, torque, and motion control of the motor.

Designing an efficient and reliable Industrial drive solution can become complex and take a long time to develop, but our motor development kits (MDK) make it easy and quick. The MDKs are comprehensive prototyping platforms consisting of a Universal Controller Board (UCB) that connects to an expanding variety of Power Boards to create quick-start platforms to run your motor. These allow you to test, evaluate, and optimize your system rapidly before designing any hardware.
