Advanced Power Drives is a leading developer of high-performance motor control systems for UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) and drones. All our ESCs (electronic speed controllers) are designed and manufactured from the ground up in-house in our facilities in Australia, providing end-to-end control over the full lifecycle for maximum quality.Drone Motor Control Solutions

Drawing on over a decade of experience in the aerospace and defense sectors, our solutions are currently operating in 46 countries and have been integrated into more than 10,000 aircraft, including a variety of multirotor, fixed-wing and VTOL drone platforms.

Drone Motor Control Systems

F Series Electronic Speed Controllers

Lightweight ESC boards for drone motor control

F Series ESC Drone motor controllerBased on a 32-bit ARM architecture, the F Series ESC boards are designed to provide maximum power-to-weight efficiency, delivering excellent RPM response across a wide range of motor configurations.

High-speed processing allows the system to capture every single throttle input command, even at the highest input update rates.

F Series drone motor controllers are compatible with all major drone flight control systems, and are easily integrated into a variety of UAV platforms with plug-and-play installation.

HV Pro Electronic Speed Controllers

Highest power density drone motor controllers

HV Pro Electronic Motor ControllerThe HV Pro is our highest power density motor controller, designed for space- and weight-limited applications where bursts of high power are needed with fast throttle response.

The system features our proprietary firmware that delivers unmatched low-throttle and starting characteristics.

The HV Pro provides a high-resolution throttle input as well as multiple drive modes to meet a variety of requirements. Other advanced features include PWM-frequency dithering, adaptive motor timing advance, and Active Phase-Current Demagnetisation (APCD).

UHV Electronic Speed Controllers

Electronic motor controllers for heavy-lift drones

UHV Electronic motor controllersThe UHV ESC provides high power output for the most challenging of heavy-lift drone applications, with fast throttle response that is linear over the complete output range.

Delivering up to 45 kW, the robust and versatile motor controller can be configured to optimize fast response or drive-train protection.

The UHV is motor-agnostic, requiring no tuning. Advanced features of the controller include PWM-frequency dithering, adaptive motor timing advance, and Active Phase-Current Demagnetisation (APCD) with dynamic synchronous rectification.

Silicon Carbide (SiC) Inverters

Next-generation SiC motor controllers

silicon carbide ESC controllerOur silicon carbide (SiC) high-voltage ESCs are the next generation of motor control, providing enhanced efficiency and power density.

Unlike other high-voltage power train solutions, these motor controllers are size- and weight-optimized for UAVs, delivering high power in a small footprint.

Our SiC motor controllers are based on wide-bandgap switching technology for maximum efficiency and flight endurance, and can be equipped with BLDC (brushless DC), sine and FOC (field-oriented control) drive variants to suit a range of requirements.
