AC Motor Controllers and Drives

AC Drive is made for pump and fan applications.

Rated from 0.5-30 hp, ACS310 incorporate PID controllers that vary drive performance in response to changes in pressure, flow, or other external data. Pump and fan control (PFC) modulates speed of main pump/fan and brings any auxiliary pumps/fans online as necessary, while soft pump and fan control (SPFC) further reduces unwanted pressure peaks in pumps and pipelines. Along with energy...

Traverse Winding Drive with Spool Flange Sensors Saves Time, Improves Spooling Accuracy

Aston, PA, June 2009 - Amacoil/Uhing traverse drive systems for spooling and winding machines now feature optional PLC-controlled sensing of spool flanges. Sensors mounted on the traverse drive unit detect the spool flange and send a signal to a pneumatic switch which actuates the reversal lever on the drive. Normally the reversal lever is mechanically turned when the traverse drive hits a...
