Veronte MC280 is a Motor Controller specifically designed for eVTOL systems. This advanced Motor Controller, commonly referred as ESC, is developed according to the DO178C and DO254 certification standards permitting to control electric motors working in the range of 12-75V with a real continuous current up to 280A.
The thoughtful design in Veronte MC280 and its redundant control input makes it the perfect solution for eVTOL and large UAVs where failure is not an option. In cooperation with Veronte Autopilot 4x it ensures the maximum efficiency and the required robustness for eVTOL certification in Urban Air Mobility (UAM) operations.

Veronte MC280 ESC (Electronic Speed Controller) has been optimized for eVTOL and large UAV applications. It is capable of precisely regulating and controlling the rotational speed of an electric motor. Being compatible with sensorless or sensored (digital encoder or hall effect) motors.
The speed variation in the high power motor controller is achieved by adjusting the time between pulses of current that is delivered to the different motor windings. In addition, it includes active braking and regenerative brakes as well as it permits to reverse the rotation sense.
Configurable Motor Controller
Following the philosophy in the Veronte Ecosystem, MC280 includes a wide variety of configuration parameters for the optimization of the motor control. It can work with electric motors of any brand, any size and with or without sensors with the maximum grade of efficiency.
Acceleration curve, motor parameters, RPM limit, or braking force are some of the configurable parameters in the Veoronte Motor Controller that permits to optimize the performance. Advanced FOC control algorithms and sensing technology is also used for reducing power consumption and extending battery life.
