American Control Electronics introduces the PML Series, a new family of versatile, feature-rich, configurable controls for brushless DC motors.
PML drives can control motors that range from 90 to 280 VDC, up to 5 amps/1.5 HP, using either 115 VAC or 230 VAC line sources. On-board trim pots allow operators to quickly set maximum and minimum speeds, acceleration and deceleration rates, motoring and regening current limits, as well as the proportional and integral feedback gains.
Series highlights include:
UL 61800-5-1 listed (NOTE: this standard will obsolete UL 508C in 2020)
NEMA 4X packages available in both steel and plastic
Able to convert 115 VAC input into 280 VDC output.
Accepts floating or grounded signals 0 ± 5 VDC, 0 ± 10 VDC or 4-20 mA
Diagnostic LEDs for power and status
Thermally protected: Drive recognizes when overheated as a result of overload
Hall effect sensors: 120°, 5 VDC, 75 mA combined
Separate current limits for operation and regen braking
16-bit microcontroller on board, ready for mission-specific configurations
