Motion Control Automation AutomationDirect drives DURApulse

AutomationDirect has added new DURApulse GS30 drives, which support several control modes including sensorless vector control, closed-loop flux vector control and torque control modes in a compact package. The GS30 series expands the DURApulse family by adding internal tension control loop expanded parameter sets for greater versatility, as well as optional EtherCAT and single- or dual-port EtherNet/IP communication cards.

GS30 drives support up to four (4) independent induction motor (IM) parameter sets or control of a single AC permanent magnet (PM) motor. They are available in sizes up to 3hp for a 230VAC single-phase input, 50hp for a 230VAC three-phase input, and 100hp for a 460VAC three-phase input. Their compact design allows for a zero-stack installation to save even more space. This series offers PID control, built-in PLC functionality, and STO capability typically found with more expensive high-performance AC drives.
