Sprint Electric drive provides 3 phase output suitable for controlling slip ring motors.
Sprint Electric announced that it now offers drives for slip ring motors. A derivation of the company’s PL/X digital DC drive product range, the JL/X slip ring motor drive shares the same software and hardware but the thyristor stack configuration has been designed to provide a 3 phase output (U, V, W) suitable for controlling slip ring motors in either 2 or 4 quadrant modes. It also offers the same fieldbus options including Profibus, DeviceNet, CC-Link, EtherNet/IP, Modbus and CANopen. The JL/X slip ring motor covers output currents from 100 to 1850 Amps and comes in three frame sizes with standard supply voltage inputs up to 480 VAC. Overload capability is 150 percent. For high duty applications, the JL/XHD range is available with an overload capability of 250 percent.
