    Mentor MP - High performance DC drive solution platformcULus Listed

    25 A – 7,400 A (5 hp – 6,500 hp)

    460 V | 575 V | 690 V

    Mentor MP brings DC drive technology up to date, enabling existing and new DC motors to provide economic and productive service. DC drive technology remains cost effective, efficient and is relatively simple to implement. For new applications, DC provides many advantages, especially for regenerative and high-power applications.

    Current ratings

    The power ratings for the 480V, 575V and 690V configurations are shown below.
    The continuous current ratings given are for a maximum ambient temperature of 40°C (104°F) and an altitude of 1000m (3,300ft). For operation at higher temperatures and altitudes de-rating is required. Overload of 150% for 30s is available with ambient temperature of 40°C (104°F) up to a maximum of 10 repetitions per hour.
