PMD Magellan® MC58113 Series ICs are programmable devices capable of providing high performance motion, speed and torque control.

They are suitable for brushless DC motors, step motors and brush DC motors, and are used for medical, scientific, robotic and automation applications.

MC58113 Series ICs are complete motion controllers that only require an external bridge circuit or amplifier to be functional. They are available with single axis and with integrated digital current loop.

This PMD ICs family is versatile and powerful, and ensures extremely smooth and quiet motor operation.

They are easy to program and to use thanks to Pro-Motion® development software and C-Motion® language.

MC58113 ICs are available in four types: MC51113 provides dedicated control of DC brush motors, MC53113 provides control of three-phase brushless DC motors, MC54113 provides control of two stepper motors, and MC58113 it can be selected via software to provide control of any of these types of motors.
