Power and current ratings

TTN-x/xx-C-C variants of Titan Go are capable of providing the nominal current from -40 ºC to 85 ºC (temperature measured in the cold plate) with a 0.1 ºC/W heatsink (Fischer LA 11 200 24) attached by means of a low thermal resistance interface material. Above 85 ºC a current derating could be needed to prevent overheating. Above 85 ºC a current derating could be needed to prevent overheating. Please see Dimensions and assembly for further details.

In case of excessive power losses, over-temperature will be detected, causing the driver to turn off. The system temperature is available in E-Core registers and is measured near the power stage. This temperature parameter can be accessed from USB 2.0, CAN or RS485 serial interface and does not indicate the air temperature, but the temperature of the PCB. Above 110 ºC the Titan Go automatically turns off the power stage and stays in fault state avoiding any damage to the drive. The Fault LED will be activated and latched until the temperature decreases below this threshold.

Drive safety is always ensured by its protections. However, by means of it, power losses and temperature will limit the allowable motor current.

Some parts of the Titan Go can exceed 125 ºC during operation, especially at high load levels.
Do not touch the Titan Go during operation and wait at least 5 minutes after turn off to allow a safe cool down.

The following figure shows the basic power flow and losses in a servo drive system.

Power losses calculation (heat dissipation)

Current flowing through Titan Servo Drive causes power losses that, ultimately, are converted in heat. This heat must be transferred to its surrounding environment efficiently so that the temperature of the drive does not reach dangerous levels. The greater the power losses, the more effective the heat dissipation must be. Power losses mainly depend mainly on 3 parameters:

  • Motor RMS current: this is the cause of what is called static or conduction power losses, which typically are the main source of power losses, having that they show a positive correlation in a squared ratio.
  • DC bus voltage: this, along with the motor RMS current and PWM switching frequency, is the cause of what are called dynamic or commutation losses, and show positive correlation in a proportional ratio.
  • PWM switching frequency: similar to DC bus voltage, the PWM switching frequency directly affects the commutation losses. Typically, 10 kHz is the default value to reduce these losses, but it can be increased up to 20 kHz.

PWM switching frequency and nominal specifications

All nominal specifications in this manual are measured under a PWM switching frequency of 10 kHz.

PWM in SMO feedback mode

It is strongly recommended to configure the alternative PWM frequency of 20 kHz when using the sensorless SMO as a feedback source, or when controlling motors of low inductance.

Other less relevant parameters affect also the power losses but are not considered in the following graphs:

  • Air temperature: higher power semiconductor temperatures reduce their efficiency. 
  • Motor speed: faster motor speeds result in higher overall power losses since the input DC bus current is greater, and this increases conduction losses on the reverse polarity protection circuitry.

Current ratings

Power losses cause the drive to increase its temperature according to:

As power losses have a positive correlation with the motor RMS current, when the ambient temperature rises, the output current must be limited to avoid an excessive drive temperature (T< 110 ºC). The threshold temperature where the current derating should start mainly depends on the DC bus voltage. 

Maximum absolute power stage

Measured on the PCB (not the heatsink) and accessible via register.

Thermal resistance from
power stage to the heatsink


ºC/WDoes not consider the thermal resistance of the heatsink, but assumes
the cold plate is a thermal conductor, not the thermal dissipator.
Thermal resistance from power stage to air5ºC/W

Considering the drive is vertical and free air convection with is allowed on the cold plate surface (> 30 cm clearance around the drive).

Mounting the drive without heatsink could only be done for very low load applications or debugging purposes, otherwise, over-temperature alarm will occur after a few minutes of operation.

Temperature stabilization
800sWith 0.1 ºC/W heatsink attached. Considering 90 % of the maximum temperature.

This graphic shows the maximum current with respect to ambient temperature, also assuming a 0.1 ºC/W heatsink attached.

Current derating

The current derating graph is only indicative and is based on thermal tests performed in a climatic chamber where there was enough room for natural air convection. Each application may reach different ratings depending on the installation, ventilation and/or housing.

Current derating is only a recommendation and is not performed automatically by the drive.

Maximizing heat dissipation with a heatsink

A heatsink is needed to reach the nominal current at any ambient temperatures. When using high-efficiency heatsinks or in enclosed spaces, the equation can be simplified as follows.

Assembly recommendations for best heat dissipation

  • Always allow natural air convection by ensuring ≥ 10 mm air space around the drive.
  • Use a good thermal interface material to improve the heat dissipation. See Dimensions and assembly for details.
  • If housed, use a good thermal conductivity material, such as black anodized aluminum. Placing the drive in a small plastic package will definitively reduce its temperature range.
  • Temperature range can be increased by providing forced cooling with a fan. Always ensure electrical isolation between live parts and the heatsink.
