New Low-Voltage Motor Control with Single Phase AC Line Source Enables Faster Braking and Easy Custom Programming for OEMs
SOUTH BELOIT, IL – American Control Electronics (ACE) announces the DCH403-10, a low voltage motor control with single phase AC line source. The DCH403-10 combines a custom regen-capable switching power supply with a low voltage drive to allow control over low voltage motors without the negative effects of current spikes or the large BUS voltage associated with typical 115/230 VAC controls. Additionally, the unit’s built-in circuitry diverts regenerative current to a dump resistor, allowing for quicker braking than most PWM drives. The DCH Series is ideal for applications including solar-powered devices, mobile equipment and actuator control.
Features of the DCH403-10 Motor Control include:
- 4-Quadrant drive
- N.O. an N.C. contacts for alarm output
- Contact can be used to power an external brake coil
- Torque mode functionality
- Capable of auto-cycling with limit switches
- Resistive feedback for positioning control
- Allows floating or grounded 0 - ± 5 VDC, 0 - ± 10 VDC or 4 – 20 mA signals
