CAUTION: This equipment operates at high voltages and currents which can result in hazardous electrical shock. Please make sure you understand and follow all necessary safety precautions prior to purchasing and operating.

TMDSHVMTRINSPIN is a DIMM100 controlCARD based motherboard evaluation module.  The High Voltage Motor Control Kit with InstaSPIN™ technology provides a great reference platform to learn and experiment with digital control of high voltage motors, utilizing the revolutionary InstaSPIN-FOC and InstaSPIN-MOTION motor control technologies included on Texas Instruments’ C2000™ InstaSPIN 32-bit microcontroller family. With InstaSPIN technology, motor system developers can quickly identify, automatically tune, and fully control a three phase motor, providing an “instantly” stable and functional motor control system. This kit is a superb, all-around motor inverter design tool, showcasing sensorless and encoder based control of the most common types of high voltage, three phase motors—including AC induction (ACI), brushless DC (BLDC), and permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSM and IPM).
