Magnetek’s M-FORCE® SD500 Severe Duty AC Traction Drive System is part of our proven line of state-of-the-art industrial controllers. The system can be connected to induction AC motors for high system efficiency at a wide range of motor speeds. The DC input, AC output drive can be used in a variety of applications including battery-operated mobile vehicles, conveyors, crushers, drills, and locomotives.
The rugged controller monitors and controls the system’s M-FORCE SD500 drives providing operation and fault reporting. It provides full-time monitoring of motor drive temperature, battery health status, system faults, run time, and a host of other features.
- CAN-Bus Communication
- Wireless RF capability
- Analog/digital inputs from gas pedal, joystick, temperature transducers and other switching devices
- Inputs from PLC and other controllers
- Multi-language display
The display in an MSHA-approved housing provides real-time performance monitoring of the control system through the controller. External controls allow for system programming and re-configuration, data reporting, and troubleshooting within a permissible area.
Custom Engineered Systems
Magnetek can provide custom-designed engineered power solutions for applications such as transportation, mining, marine or locomotive applications using our M-FORCE SD500 Variable Frequency Drives. Magnetek can also provide custom monitoring, data collection and display systems integrated with any Magnetek M-FORCE® severe duty drive to provide the ultimate in assured performance and control. Our flexible building block approach allows us to configure a custom display and controller to your exact requirements. The control interface provides real-time diagnostics for preventative maintenance and troubleshooting, reducing down time and repairs.
Adjustable operating speeds, torque limits, and controlled stopping allow for smooth operation and torque control from stall to 400 Hz.
Increased Energy Efficiency
A custom engineered system can improve the power factor and reduce in-rush currents to minimize energy consumption.
Controlled start-up torque decreases the wear and tear on the motor and connected load, which reduces mechanical breakdown to extend motor life.
