Selecting the Right Sense Resistor for Motor Control with Reinforced Isolation

Selecting the Right Sense Resistor for Motor Control with Reinforced Isolation

Sponsored by Bourns

Current sense resistors help motor control system designs benefit from adopting new digital isolation technologies. Bourns offers recommendations for selecting the best current sense resistor for this application. The paper presents the standard differences between traditional opto-coupler-based technologies and inductive/capacitive technologies for reinforced isolation, and provides a system overview that uses digital control of a motor drive.
