Télega

State-of-the-art PMSM/BLDC motor control solution for aerospace applications and robotics.

Télega is an advanced electric motor control solution (PMSM/BLDC) for aerospace and robotic applications. Telega implements new approaches to digital signal processing that enable high energy efficiency and excellent dynamic characteristics. Telega supports a wide variety of communication interfaces and auxiliary features that enable easy integration into the end application.

Performance

Télega employs new approaches to digital signal processing (DSP), which in combination with a proprietary field-oriented control (FOC) algorithm enable a significant improvement in energy efficiency, better dynamic characteristics and higher robustness compared to traditional PMSM/BLDC drives, including modern vector control solutions from other vendors.

Higher energy efficiency and the resulting decrease in heat dissipation allows Télega-based drives to achieve higher power output in smaller form factors.

Built-in robust motor identification routines ensure compatibility with many PMSM or BLDC motors with minimal manual tuning required. Further performance optimization for a particular motor is possible with manual tuning, which is an optional service provided by Zubax Robotics (please email sales@zubax.com for details).

Versatility

Supported communication interfaces:

  • CAN bus with optional dual bus redundancy for safety-critical applications.
  • RC PWM for UAV/robotic applications.
  • Support for analog motor temperature sensors.

Telega-based motor controllers support in-field firmware upgrades via CAN bus (no need to disassemble the vehicle).

Reliability

Robust sensorless operation even with poorly characterized (low cost) motors.

The hardware implementations are made to withstand harsh environments and employ AEC-Q qualified components (consult with the specific product documentation for the list of exceptions).

Every manufactured unit undergoes a rigorous automatic testing procedure at the factory. The test reports are available online for every delivered device. Extended traceability data is available upon request.

Applications

  • Propeller and fan drives in electric aircraft (manned/unmanned).
  • Pump and propeller drives in electric watercraft.
  • Fuel pumps for jet engines and gas turbines.
  • Propulsion systems in ground robots and EVs.

There are motor controllers and integrated drives that cover a wide range of power levels and different application domains. We also design custom electric propulsion solutions for our customers upon request.
