Facts about World Energy

Population growth and advanced digitalization in recent years have caused the demand for power to increase.
We are also faced with CO2 emission and other environmental problems. When analyzing the breakdown of power consumption, it is said that roughly half of the power is used by motor-related equipment, which shows the importance of controlling the motors effectively.

Outlook on World Population and Energy Consumption (By Region)

Sanken Electric's motor drivers contribute to efficiency by helping the conversion of applications including air conditioners, refrigerators, and washing machines into inverter types.

High Voltage 3-phase Brushless Motor Driver Applications

ラインアップ


Conversion to inverter type applications is expected to expand rapidly worldwide.

Due to the rapid growth in demand to save energy, products that were formerly manufactured as non-inverter types are being converted to inverter types.

As a result, they have been adopted in regions where there are large fluctuations in power voltages, due to unstable voltage conditions. For motor drivers, there is demand for products with withstand voltage of 600V or higher so that they will not be destroyed when the power supply voltage fluctuates.

Featured Products

SX68200M Series

SX68200M Series


The SX68200M series are 3-phase brushless motor drivers in which output transistors, pre-drive circuits, bootstrap diodes with current-limiting resistors are highly integrated. Employing a sinusoidal driving strategy with a sensorless vector control, the SX68200M series brings a small-sized, high-efficient, and low-noise motor controlling into your application. These products can run on a 3-shunt current detection system and optimally control the inverter systems of medium-capacity motors that require universal input standards.

SIM6800M Series

SIM6800M Series


The SIM6800M series are high voltage 3-phase motor drivers in which transistors, a pre-drive circuit, and bootstrap circuits (diodes and resistors) are highly integrated. These products can run on a 3-shunt current detection system and optimally control the inverter systems of low to medium capacity motors that require universal input standards.

SCM2000MKF Series

SCM2000MKF Series


The SCM2000MKF series are 3-phase brushless motor driver ICs in which output transistors, pre-driver ICs (MICs), bootstrap diodes with current-limiting resistors, and a temperature-sensing thermistor are highly integrated. These products can run on a 3-shunt current detection system and optimally control the inverter systems of medium-capacity motors that require universal input standards.

In the future, we will continue to develop new packages, in addition to developing higher performing silicon devices and new material devices such as SiCs. Through this, we aim to further improve the efficiency and reliability of motor equipment, and promote new product development for a wide range of industrial applications with high current and high withstand voltage.
