Why Choose PCI?

Customization

Choose a catalog item, have it slightly modified, or ask PCI to design something new. Performance Controls boasts one of the deepest power electronics design teams available anywhere in the world. Electronics, mechanical and software design, as well as design for manufacturing, are all done in one location, ensuring your new product will be robust.

Digital Architecture

Since 1998, our motor drives have been fully digital, enabling performance optimization, durability and superior flexibility in setup, operation and maintenance. Proprietary and patented pulse width modulation (PWM) techniques contribute to quiet operation, highly responsive control in torque and velocity modes and efficient use of supply voltage. PCI’s robust health monitor logs, warnings and alarms to enable fast field or remote troubleshooting and problem correction.

Reliable

PCI has achieved mean-time-between-failure (MTBF) performance of more than 300,000 hours for our top-selling product, the GA-300/GA-301. Features such as extensive fault protection, advanced real-time adaptive thermal modeling and instantaneous over-current protection contributes to the exceptional robustness and reliability of PCI amplifiers.

Ruggedized Design

PCI power drives are used in harsh vibration, temperature and humidity environments. We’ve designed and manufactured amplifiers for on-road vehicles, off-road and military vehicles, ships, airplanes, mission critical antenna systems, oil patch downhole tooling, and marine towed-array use.

Command and Feedback Options

Input command options include +/-10V analog, RS485, CAN, CANOpen, Fiber Optic, DeviceNet, Ethernet, EtherCAT and others. Drives accept feedback from encoders, Halls sensors, resolvers or can be operated sensorless via computed positioning. Some amplifiers can be run in master/slave mode for increased current.

Software/ Firmware

In-house expertise for firmware and software development along with our robust proprietary amplifier software platform ensures maximum performance of your power amplifier application.
