Description

Mentor MP - The Ultimate DC Drive

25A to 7400A, 400V / 575V / 690V

Mentor MP is Control Techniques 5th generation DC drive and integrates the control platform from the world’s leading intelligent AC drive, Unidrive SP. This makes Mentor MP the most advanced DC drive available, giving optimum performance and flexible system interfacing capability.

Upgrading your control system

There are large numbers of DC motors in service throughout the world in various applications, the majority of which are easily capable of providing ongoing service. Upgrading your DC drive allows you to maximise the motor performance, enhance system reliability and interface digitally with modern control equipment using Ethernet and Fieldbus networks. Downtime is minimised as only the drive needs to be replaced.

Driving forward with DC technology

DC drive technology remains cost effective, efficient and is relatively simple to implement. For new applications, DC provides many advantages, especially for regenerative and high power applications.

Simple upgrade

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

Mentor MP DC Drive Features

Greater motor field control

  • Built in field controller as standard

  • Gives excellent field control for the majority of DC motors

  • Reduces the need for external components

 

Enhanced field control with FXMP25

  • The FXMP25 may be controlled digitally by using a standard RJ45 connection, allowing set-up by standard drive parameters

  • The FXMP25 can also function in standalone mode using its integrated keypad and display

 

Enhanced system design

  • The heatsink cooling fans are intelligently controlled and only run when required, thus increasing reliability and reducing maintenance

  • Eighteen different option modules allow customisation of the drive, including Fieldbus, Ethernet, I/O, extra feedback devices and motion controllers

  • The drive system designer is able to embed automation and motion control within the drive, eliminating communications delays that reduce performance

 

A variety of options

  • Communication modules including SM-CANopen, SM-DeviceNet, SM-EtherCAT, SM-Ethernet, SM-Interbus, SM-Profibus-DP, SM-Profinet

  • Keypads and storage including MP-Keypad, SM-Keypad and Smartcard

  • A range of I/O expansion modules

  • Encoder feedback modules

 

Fast set-up, configuration and monitoring

  • Quick and easy to set-up

  • Can be configured using optional removable keypads

  • Advanced autotune features help you get the best performance from your machine

  • PC software and Smartcard tools for rapid commissioning

  • Intelligent networked system with CTNet

  • Program inbuilt controller with SyPTLite

  • Develop tailored solutions for applications modules with SyPTPro

  • Option modules for all common Industrial Ethernet, Fieldbus networks


Retro-fit projects

  • Easy integration with your existing motor, power supply, application equipment and communication networks has been ensured from the design stage

  • Mentor MP brings performance and possibilities to your application with minimum migration costs


Ease of migration

  • Mentor MP has been designed so existing Mentor II customers can easily migrate to the new platform

  • All power terminal locations and mounting points have been retained

  • Mentor MP has a much smaller frame size than the 900 A Mentor II with paralleling options to offer high power density

  • CT Soft has a built in migration wizard to assist with the transfer of drive parameters and programs

  • Smaller cable requirements make connections within the cubical easier. Construction of a custom-made bus-bar is not required


Motor Field Control

  • Built in field controller as standard in every Mentor MP

    • Gives excellent field control for the majority of DC motors

    • Reduces the need for external components

An external motor field controller is recommended when:

  • The required field current is greater than that offered by the standard drive, up to 25 A. For example, older motors with low field voltages

  • The field is required to be forced down more quickly than is possible with a standard half controlled field bridge

  • Applications can be implemented with simple field current reversal, without armature reversal, if machine dynamics can still be met


Ideal for Retro-fit Projects

Mentor MP is an ideal retro-fi t choice with features to ensure it can integrate easily with your existing motor, power supply, application equipment and communication networks. Mentor

MP brings new performance and new possibilities to your application with minimum projects costs.

 

We’ve done all the hard work

Mentor MP has been designed so existing Mentor II customers can easily migrate to the new platform. All power terminal locations and mounting points have been retained and software

tools have been developed to assist transfer of drive parameters and programs. If you are planning to upgrade your DC system, whether it is a Mentor or other manufacturer’s drive, Mentor MP is the clear choice.


Backwards compatible motor field control

The new FXMP25 replaces our existing FXM5 option. It may be controlled digitally by the Mentor MP or Mentor II using a standard RJ45 connection, allowing set-up by standard drive

parameters. The FXMP25 has the same physical dimensions as the existing FXM5, but extends its current range to 25A. In standalone mode it is configured by its own keypad and display.


Northern Industrial can assist with all upgrade and retrofit enquiries, get in touch and we will be more than happy to specify the perfect drive for your requirements.
