PM Family of Traction Controls

The PM Family of automotive class traction control motor drives evolved from RMS’ proprietary Formula 1 based packaging technology and approach. These are the lightest, smallest sealed and automotive ready drives available anywhere. The Family will quickly span 50kW – 500kWpk as applications continue to open up for the larger drives.

  PM100 - 100kW peak
The PM100 is presently shipping in small quantities, DV-stage pre-production hardware. The drive is available at two different voltage ratings depending on the battery storage system used on your vehicle:

PM100DX - 300Arms continuous, 160 - 360VDC
PM100DZ - 150Arms continuous, 300 - 720VDC




  PM150 - 150kW peak
The PM150 is identical to the PM100 except for an additional 50mm in length to accommodate the significantly larger internal DC Link capacitor assembly and power module.

PM150DX - 450Arms continuous, 160 - 360VDC
PM150DZ - 250Arms continuous, 300 -720VDC




PM250 - 250kW peak (Coming Soon)
The PM250 is a higher power drive system optimized for heavy duty applications in trucking, buses, construction equipment, and other vehicles with a high continuous power requirement and extensive power cycling life requirements.

  PM250DX - 900Arms continuous, 160 - 360VDC
  PM250DZ - 500Arms continuous, 300 - 720VDC

PM350 - 350kW peak (Coming Soon)

  PM350DX - 1250Arms continuous, 160 - 360VDC
  PM350DZ - 750Arms continuous, 300 - 720VDC
