Magnetek Offers DC Crane Modernization Solution with OmniPulse DDC™ Series 2 Drive
Magnetek, supplier of digital power and motion control systems for the material handling industry, announced the availability of their new OmniPulse™ DDC Series 2 Drive. This microprocessor-based, solid-state, four-quadrant, DC-to-DC control is designed for series, shunt or compound wound motors, and is ideal for DC crane modernizations.
“The new OmniPulse DDC Series 2 Drive improves the performance, safety and reliability of DC-operated material handling applications, while minimizing downtime, maintenance expenses, and energy costs,” said Casey Cummins, product manager for controls. “It is the smart choice for facilities looking for an efficient, advanced DC control solution.”
OmniPulse DDC Series 2 features Magnetek’s DataLogger Series 4 Keypad (DLS4), which allows users to access run, fault and alarm histories, enables drive configuration without the need to switch between devices, and simplifies troubleshooting faults and alarms. DLS4 is compatible with IMPULSE®•Link 5 Software, making uploading, downloading and monitoring parameters simple using a hard-wired cable connected to the serial port on the drive. X-Press Programming™ automatically configures several common parameters and features when a motion or speed reference is selected. The DSL4, plus X-Press Programming, provide quick and easy setup similar to Magnetek’s IMPULSE® AC Adjustable Frequency Drives.
