Micro drive builds in PLC functionality
07 December 2012
Softstart UK has introduced a new intelligent vector control micro drive that provides versatile control modes and includes built-in functionality. Manufactured by Delta Electronics, the C200 offers advanced control and reliable operation.
The C200's integral PLC function offers a program capacity of up to 5,000 steps, with input and output relays, internal relays, a high speed 16-bit counter and a 100ms timer. The PLC functions are programmed in an intuitive Windows environment through Delta’s user-friendly WPLSoft ladder editing software.
The C200 supports both open and closed loop vector control, including sensorless open loop control of permanent magnet motors. The drive is operated, monitored and set using a touch keypad and high visibility LED display.
Long-term reliability is enhanced by a new PCB coating for the circuit boards and an advanced thermal design. A built in brake chopper limits the dc bus voltage when the motor is acting as a generator, further boosting reliability and eliminating the need for external components, which add cost and take up valuable panel space.
Available in powers from 400W to 7.5kW, the C200 to be brought to the UK through Softstart UK’s new strategic partnership with Delta.
