PLX Digital DC Motor Control

PLX Digital DC Motor Control

Fully Configurable

The PL/X is fully configurable by the user and comes equipped, as standard, with a comprehensive suite of application blocks.

Fully Controllable

Centre winding macros, spindle orientation and a fully controllable field allow you to control DC motors in a wide range of industrial applications. The PL/X also includes PL Pilot, a windows based, configuration and monitoring software package.

Motor Protection

The extensive range of motor protection features improves your productivity by reducing your downtime. And the unique configuration checker quickly detects any conflicts in your own user-generated configurations.

Simple Integration

To make it easier for you to integrate the PL/X into your control system, the drives are fully isolated and have a small footprint. The PL/X has a number of fieldbus communications options, including: Profibus, DeviceNet, CC-Link, EtherNet/IP, Modbus and CANopen.

Powerful Ethernet

All PL/X models are compatible with drive.web. The drive.web distributed control technology uses Ethernet and powerful graphical tools to provide robust Programmable Peer Control (PPC) for drives and systems. Learn more about drive.web

PLX Digital DC Motor Control

Slip Ring Motor Controller - JLX

JLX
Model JL / JLX - Digital Slip Ring Motor Control Up To 1850 Amps (800KW/1080HP)

The JL/X range of slip ring motor drives is a derivation of the PL/X Digital DC drive product range. It shares the same software and hardware platforms and delivers the same precise digital control functionality enjoyed by users of the established range of DC Drives. The main difference between the PL/X and JL/X range is that the thyristor stack configuration has been designed to provide a firing angle controlled 3 phase output (U, V, W) suitable for controlling slip ring motors in either 2 or 4 Quadrant modes. All the fieldbus options and configuration software packages used with the PL/X are also available for the JL/X range.

The JL/X range covers output currents from 100 to 1680 Amps and is available in 3 frame sizes with standard supply voltage inputs up to 480VAC. (Frame 2, 4 and 5). Frame 4 and 5 also have the option of being supplied as HV units that are able to accept AC supply voltages up to 690 VAC for higher voltage applications. All models have the high current 3 phase supply terminals in standard top entry, with the motor connections at the bottom of the unit.
