Equinox PMDC Drive for Brushed Motors

The Equinox variable speed brushed DC motor drive with Navigator Programmer is the next generation in PWM motor control. It features digital programming, a 1.01 form factor, 8 amp rating and a 16kHz PWM frequency resulting in low noise, a cooler motor and longer motor life. Programming the Equinox is made simple and repeatable by using the menu-driven Navigator hand held remote programmer. With the Navigator, there are no potentiometer adjustments, programming is quick, accurate and easily copied from unit to unit. Control inputs include a 5kOhm potentiometer, 0-5VDC, 0-15VDC, or 0-20mA source. Programmable settings include: minimum and maximum speed, acceleration and deceleration rates, current compensation and current limit. One Navigator programmer can be used to program any number of drives or drives can be programmed at the factory for as few as 50 units.
