Features: Programmable current limit 100-1200 motor amps, automatic over-temperature current limit cut-back, water-cooled copper heat sink, low-loss IGBT modules, and motor overspeed limit.
Processor: Microchip PIC 16F877 This small yet powerful microcontroller runs at 5 MIPS and 20MHz with 8kb of onboard program FLASH memory. It also has two onboard 10-bit PWM generators, eight 10-bit ADC channels, and a UART interface.
