SCO-B1-50 (60) Drives
CompletePower™ Series

Summary Details

Technology: Brushless, Speed Control
Quadrants: 2
Nominal Current: 18A or 40A

For BLDC Motors. Up to 2000W.
This two-quadrant brushless DC speed control is housed in a compact open-frame aluminum module which can be panel mounted for easy integration. The drive includes a control enable/disable, direction and set value inputs. Both the 18 A and the 40 A versions of this drive have an adjustable current limit and can be powered by the same 20 � 50 VDC range of supply voltage. The 18 A version of this drive is also available for supply voltages range from 30 - 60 VDC. The drive is protected against over-current and over-temperature and incorporates state of the art MOSFET technology for maximum efficiency. Connectivity is achieved with simple screw-terminals for control/feedback inputs, supply power and motor connections.

Software Type Overview
CompletePower Plus™ Setup Utility Software Description
ElectroCraft CompletePower™ Plus Set-up Utility is a Windows-based program used for the setup, parameterization, system diagnostics and motion control management of the ElectroCraft CompletePower Plus line of digital servo drives. The ElectroCraft CompletePower™ Plus Set-Up Utility will lead the user through a Step-by-Step Wizard to create the correct configuration information required for the user to run a particular motor with a particular drive. The result will be an "Application" file containing all of the information required to run the motor with the drive.

System Requirements
Computer ElectroCraft CompletePower™ Plus can be installed on any IBM™ PC compatible computer running:
• Windows 95/98
• Windows NT 4
• Windows 2000
• Windows XP

A VGA display is required. A color monitor display makes it possible to take full advantage of ElectroCraft CompletePower™ Plus's graphic interface. The recommended screen resolution is 1024 x 728. A resolution of 800 x 600 will also function properly.

The ElectroCraft CompletePower™ Plus Set-up Utility uses the default printer installed on your computer. For optimal resolution, especially when printing graphs, use a high resolution (300-dpi) laser or ink jet printer.

A mouse or other pointing device is required to use ElectroCraft CompletePower™ Plus Set-up Utility.

Serial I/O
The ElectroCraft CompletePower™ Plus Set-up Utility can be configured to use the PC's serial port for communication between the host PC and an ElectroCraft drive. A RS-232 serial cable is required between the host PC and the drive.
