The Carotron Elite®Pro V3 has been designed with control loop speed and accuracy in mind. As a result, our control is equipped with a digital signal processor (DSP).  The DSP is responsible for all the control loops and I/O functions.  The result is a DC Drive with superior speed and torque regulation, as compared with most Digital DC Drives.
One of the great advantages of the Elite®Pro V3 is the on board FLASH memory.  Software upgrades or application specific changes can be made in the field without sending the unit back to the factory.
The Elite®Pro V3 has been equipped with an enhanced operator panel as a standard. The operator panel displays text messages on a 20 character x 4 line back lighted LCD display. Text messages can often eliminate the need to look up parameter codes in the instruction manual. Three soft keys, arrows, and enter buttons are used to maneuver around in the simple menu structure. Additionally, the operator panel remains mounted when the front cover is removed. The operator panel can also be remote mounted up to 1000 feet away with an optional NEMA 4 mounting kit and simple communication cable.
Many users and OEM’s have already recognized the benefits of communications with motor controllers. The lower cost of engineering and installation combined with enhanced flexibility make this an attractive low cost alternative to control wiring. Many products offer serial communications only as an option. The Elite®Pro V3 comes with Modbus RTU capability right out of the box.  Ports: USB and RS422/RS485.  Additionally, we offer option cards for Modbus® TCP/IP and EtherNet/IP®.
The on board Field Regulator has two modes of operation. In the standard mode, the regulator supplies the standard 150/247/300VDC depending on the input voltage supply. In the closed loop mode, the shunt field current is regulated thus providing improved performance throughout the motor’s temperature range. This mode of operation along with the regulator’s ability to be used with an external voltage source makes it easy for the Elite®Pro V3 to be used with motors that have non-standard field voltages.
  • Computer software for upload/download, debugging, and parameter file storage
  • Field Cross-over control for constant HP above base speed
  • Add on kits for NEMA 1 Enclosure with fuses, armature contactor and AC disconnect
  • Software options for Constant Tension Center Winder Control, Load Cell Tension Control, Center Let-off Control, and other application specific functions
