The PML series is a family of feature-rich, configurable controls for brushless dc motors. The drives can control motors that range from 90 to 280 Vdc, up to 5 amps/1.5 hp, using either 115- or 230-Vac line sources. Onboard trim pots enable operators to set maximum and minimum speeds, acceleration and deceleration rates, motoring and regening current limits and proportional and integral feedback gains. An onboard microprocessor allows for custom programming for tasks ranging from changing the purpose of a jumper or trim pot to programming an entire application-specific routine. It integrates PLC-like functionality into operations, eliminating the need for a separate PLC.
