The KBPC Series SCR DC drives, manufactured by KB Electronics, have a NEMA 4X enclosure (IP-65) and provide accurate speed and torque control for applications requiring washdown watertight integrity. KBPC Series features two analog style drive models ranging from 1/50 thru 3.0 horsepower. These are housed in rugged die cast aluminum, which has a protective acrylic coating for ultimate resistance from corrosion. The drive switches are sealed with rubber boots, and the main speed potentiometer contains a shaft seal.
KBPC drives feature short circuit and transient protection to enhance reliability. These have overload protection to prevent motor burnout and demagnetization of PM motors. Speed or torque mode can be set via jumper selection. The current range is also jumper selectable and eliminates the need for calibration of IR compensation and current limit for most applications. There are also jumper selections for AC line voltage (230/115), DC armature voltage (180/90) and feedback type (armature/tachometer).
