Carotron is proud to introduce the Elite®Pro, the latest addition to the Carotron Family of high performance, reliable, and rugged DC drives for motor control. Many years of research and development by Carotron’s Engineering Staff have culminated in a drive series that provides quality, accuracy, flexibility and user friendliness not found in any other drive in the market place. The heart of the Elite®Pro is a high speed Digital Signal Processor (DSP) designed specifically for motor control applications. The speed and processing power of the DSP are further enhanced by the skillful use of five (5) additional co-processors to handle critical high speed timing functions as well as keypad and external communications. Therefore, the resulting design is very capable of handling basic control algorithms along with advanced algorithms for system functions such as PID Dancer Controls, Center Winder Controls, Tension Controls, and Customized Control Functions to meet user requirements. The power section design for the Elite®Pro follows the same conservative design practice that Carotron’s customers have come to appreciate in all of Carotron’s designs. This product also serves as a retrofit DC drive for obsolete DC drive replacement.
We provide a regenerative and non-regenerative DC drive chassis package that is capable of full load operation in a 55 °C ambient. Compare this to our competitors that design to ambient levels of 35 °C to 50 °C. Standard customer interface to the Elite®Pro is via a four-line alphanumeric, back lighted LCD display. English text and menu screens with soft-keys simplify the drive programming and eliminates the need to memorize numeric codes. A User programmable section is provided to allow frequently used monitoring screens or programming screens to be located together for specific machine functions. Two levels of password protection can be activated to prevent unwanted changes of drive parameters. RS-232 and RS-485 communications also allow interface to computers and PLC’s.
Typical applications for the Elite Pro include:
DOWNLOAD PROLINK V2 SOFTWARE — ProLink V2 is Carotron’s software package that is designed to be used with the Elite®Pro series of digital DC drives that support the Modbus serial communications protocol. The software will allow users to monitor, update, and document the settings in an Elite®Pro drive. Early models of the Elite®Pro did not use the Modbus protocol and ProLink V1 is required to communicate with these drives. The communication protocol of and Elite®Pro can easily be determined by observing the LCD on the drive when power is applied to the unit. The Modbus protocol is implemented in versions 16.x.x.x or later.
