Dart Releases Two New Brushless DC Drives

Press release date: Sep 01, 2009

Brushless DC (BLDC) continues to be a focal point of product development for Dart. Two new BLDC products coming this fall are the fruit of this development effort. Both products are in response to customers telling us what they need.

Line Voltage BLDC - The 720 Series BLDC drive will accept 120VAC input, generating up to 160VDC armature voltage. The drive is full featured with adjustable MIN and MAX armature voltage, CURRENT LIMIT, and separately adjustable ACCEL and DECEL. Functions include INHIBIT, BRAKE, FWD/REV. On-board diagnostics are included via local LED and remote signal. The 720 Series will offer both chassis and NEMA 4/12 enclosed.

Integrated Drive and Display - The BLM700 Series BLDC drive will be offered in a 1/8 DIN panel mount design initially. This product will have the same installed cost advantages as Dart's MicroDrive Series digital closed-loop drives, except more feature rich and built exclusively for BLDC motors.

These products are ready for beta testing now, and will both be ready for production in late 2009 / early 2010. Contact the factory for more details and to request a sample.
