The 2600RGDC Drive is a high performance, regenerative DC motor control.
Included are many standard features that are available only as
options on many other single-phase regenerative drives.
Accessibility to all important internal regulator points is
provided by terminals on the control. This permits the 2600RG to
be used in custom engineered applications, as well as in standard
speed regulated applications. The 2600RG was designed to handle
most single phase regenerative drive applications without the
addition of external hardware and the need for costly,
Three control models handle the entire 1/4 to 7 1/2HP range of
applications. Drive current limit and inverse time overload
protective circuits for rating within this range are calibrated by
means of a jumper change on the main printed circuit board.
The 2600RG DC Drive controls a DC motor's speed or torque by varying the DC
voltage applied to the motor's armature. Because the control is
regenerative, it can provide power to the load and return that
power to the AC power line. Rectilinear phase control assures
stable operation at low speeds and smooth transitions between
motoring and regenerative modes (zero deadband).
The 2600RG DC Drive is a versatile control. Simple jumpered programming
allows the 2600RG to operate from either 120 or 240 volt AC input
power at 50 or 60 Hz. Additional jumpers program the control to
operate as either a speed regulator with armature voltage or DC
tachometer feedback or as a torque regulator with armature current
feedback. Two control models cover the entire 1/4 to 5HP range of
applications. Drive current limit and inverse time overload
protective circuits for ratings within this range are calibrated
by means of a jumper change on the main printed circuit board. DC
output current varies as a function of an input reference voltage
in torque regulated applications. Changing the torque reference
(potentiometer setting) results in a change in motor torque
The 2600RG DC control converts single phase AC input power to
variable voltage DC output power. The DC output is applied
directly to the DC motor armature. DC output voltage varies as a
function of an input reference voltage in speed regulated
applications. (Typically, this input reference voltage is provided
by an operator adjustable potentiometer). Changing the speed
reference (potentiometer setting) results in a motor speed change.
The 2600RG DC control is designed for use with either shunt wound or
permanent magnet DC motors. A fixed voltage unregulated DC source
is provided for connection of the motor field in wound field
applications. Included in the 2600RG DC control are many built-in
features not available on competitive units. Motor field economy
and separately adjustable rates of acceleration and deceleration
are included on all units. If desired, the built-in Accel-Decel control ramps can be by-passed completely by a jumper change on
the control. Current compounding can be added to the speed
regulator by changing another jumper position. Current limit is
normally set by a potentiometer located on the main printed
circuit board, but if desired, it can be adjusted using a remote
mounted potentiometer or a customer supplied voltage signal. An
output signal is available for use with one of the 2600RG ammeter
kits to provide an indication of drive output current without the
addition of an ammeter shunt. On occasion, customer requirements
may dictate that the operator's devices be mounted on the door of
- Circuit Board Indicators - Light emitting diodes
(LEDs) of the main circuit board indicate: DC overload, Field
Loss, Instantaneous Over-current Trip, Run Mode, Jog Mode,
SCR's Being Gated, Fault Trip Circuit. Protective circuits are
designed to quickly shut the drive down and provide a visual
indication whenever a DC overload, field loss, or
instantaneous over-current condition occurs. This fault trip
circuit prevents restart. It must be reset before the drive
can run again.
