DetailsThe Veronte GIM3 is a small brushless control device, particularly an ESC for critical actuator control that can be controlled through PWM, CAN, or I2C interfaces. It is well used for brushless motor control including advanced features for precision applications. Veronte GIM3 can track angular position by a built-in control mechanism using encoder signal input for precise motor positioning.
ApplicationsAdvanced precision control is of special interest in controlling pointing devices such as gimbals or tracking systems. Any brushless motor can be controlled precisely with this professional ESC, providing to the operation a new added value in a matter of accuracy. Gimbal control is enhanced due to its very fast response, the image is rapidly stabilized and pointed to the exact point the operator might be looking for.On large distance pointing, precision is a must as the pointing error highly increases with distance. The use of precision encoders for motor control provides extraordinary precision, so it is a perfect solution for long-range applications. It can significantly improve the performance of precision gimbals for its use in large aircraft and high-altitude systems.CAN Bus control is available, at the time it can be controlled with a PWM or I2C input. It permits to establish advanced motor controller layouts, being possible to install several brushless motor controllers on the same CAN Bus port.
PDI Control AlgorithmThe control algorithm embedded in the system is the Proportional Integral Derivative (PID), whose gains can be configurable by the user, so performance is optimized for every application. This PID control algorithm manages the motor position, which can be done in two different ways: taking the motor position as an absolute value in the reference system or taking the position relative to an IMU sensor.
