Sprint Electric has increased its range of digital DC drives further. Both 2 quadrant and 4 quadrant options are now available up to 1650 amps. The new drives will be introduced in November at SPS/IPC/Drives, the international trade fair for electric automation, systems and components, in Nuremberg, Germany.
“This is more great news for our customers working in heavy industries like paper, plastics and metals,” says Gary Keen, Head of Global Sales for Sprint Electric. “We saw our customers had great success when we recently increased the power rating of our digital DC drives to 1050 amps. So we can understand why they are pleased to hear we have increased our power ratings even further.”
The PLX range of digital drives offers compact design and powerful software on all models from 12 amps up to the new 1650 amps models. All models include 40 character alphanumeric backlit displays, a range of software blocks, and a fully controlled field for extended speed range. ‚â€œAs with all our digital products, the software continues to set the standard‚â€, Gary Keen explains. ‚â€œThe fully controlled field, the extensive range of software blocks, and the range of communication protocols available allow our customers to overcome the most demanding of motor control applications.”
The new PLX is UL, cUL and CE approved and available from stock. The PLX is part of an integrated range of analogue and digital DC drives covering both single phase and three phase, regenerative and non-regenerative applications. Whether in original equipment or in retrofits, DC drives from Sprint Electric are being used in many different applications including metal processing, the pulp and paper industry, rubber and plastic processing, lifting equipment, food processing, leisure industries and many more.
