Mentor MP - The Ultimate DC Drive

Control Techniques Mentor has lead the way in Digital DC Drive technology.

Mentor MP is Control Techniques 5th generation DC drive and integrates the control platform from the world’s leading intelligent AC drive, Unidrive SP.

  • ESM Australia offers extensive experience in DC control - particularly retrofits in: Sugar, Plastics, Steel, Food, Amusement rides, Diesel test sets, Wood processing, Paper, and more.
    Please contact our experienced team for more information about Mentor MP such as:
    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 among 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/Thyristor junction temperature
    Feedback loss
    Field loss
    Armature open circuit
    Flexible field control - an 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 8A

Integrated field control on frame size 2 to 20A

Flux control for enhanced open-loop performance

Optional External FXMP25 field control to 25A 

Easy upgrade

Mentor MP has been designed as an easy upgrade for Mentor II. It has the same physical dimensions and power connection layout. Software tools have been developed to easily migrate to the new platform.
