Nidec DC Drives Overview
DC SRC drives and motors remain common in industries such as metals, cranes, mining and printing. The current trend is to replace DC systems with new AC drives and motors to reduce maintenance overhead. This can, however, often be a significant task that requires the machinery to be taken out of service for an extended period while mechanical and electrical rework is completed.
Utilizing existing DC motors and upgrading the DC drives is often the most attractive option. DC motors are usually well built and capable of offering many more years of service to help lower project costs and minimize disruption and risks. Control Techniques DC drives are now based on our industry-leading AC drive technology to deliver enhanced motor performance, reliability and system integration options.
Mentor MP brings DC drive technology up to date, enabling existing and new DC motors to provide economic and productive service. DC drive technology remains cost effective, efficient and is relatively simple to implement. For new applications, DC provides many advantages, especially for regenerative and high-power applications.
The Quantum MP is a packaged Mentor MP DC drive providing reliability, power and control to increase productivity for both new machines and applications in which DC motors are already installed. The Quantum MP package includes the drive, fusing, power switching and 115Vac interface making it the ideal choice for rapid retrofits with regenerative and non-regenerative modules available to suit your application. The Quantum MP saves engineering time and panel space making it ideal for North American customers.
The FXMP25 external field controller may be connected digitally to a Mentor MP using a standard RJ45 connection, allowing setup by standard drive parameters. The FXMP25 can also function in standalone mode using its integrated keypad and display
