New MGC Series Regenerative SCR Control for OEM Applications

POSTED 04/18/2017

MGC SeriesOut-of-the-box multi-mode operation at a competitive cost

SOUTH BELOIT, IL – American Control Electronics (ACE) announces the MGC Series, a new microprocessor-based fully regenerative SCR control. An on-board microprocessor allows ACE to preconfigure the MGC for a customer’s specific application. OEMs can select various modes of operation out of the box, including: Torque, Linear Torque, Independent Speed/Torque, Cycling via Limit Switches, Cycling via Feedback, and Positioning.

The competitively-priced MGC eliminates the need for additional items such as relays, switches and PLCs, reducing setup and installation time. A new current-limiting algorithm prevents overshoot, extending brush life and reducing demagnetization, which extends motor life.

Highlights of the MGC series include:

  • 115 or 230 VAC power source, 50 or 60 Hz single phase
  • Designed for 90 or 180 VDC PMDC motors
  • Maximum current rating: 11 amps (equivalent to 2 HP @ 180 VDC)
  • 1.37 SCR form factor at motor’s rated speed
  • Maximum temperature: 50 degrees Celsius
  • Under 50 Hz vibration = 0.5G, Over 50 Hz vibration + 0.1G
  • UL listed US & Canada (UL61800-5-1)
