A motor control module is a computer-based controller that is used to control and manage the operation of an electric motor. It is typically found in industrial settings where large motors are used in tasks such as drilling or power generation, and it regulates the electric current that runs through the motor. The module contains several input and output signals, and it usually has a central processor unit that uses real-time software to control the motor’s operations. Motor control modules also allow a user to control the speed, direction, torque and acceleration of the motor using control interfaces. They also provide important safety features such as overload protection and emergency shut-off.
