New microprocessor-based digital dc drives from AutomationDirect

Posted On By CyberGeek

The IronHorse GSD8 series of dc drives is a microprocessor-based design with non-volatile memory storage that is programmable with adjustable parameters, programmable alarm outputs and offers a digital closed-loop algorithm for motor control. GSD8 output power available is 1/2 to 1 hp at 120 Vac input and 1 to 2 hp at 240 Vac input; output voltage is 90 Vdc (120 Vac) and 180 Vdc (240 Vac) with maximum current ratings of 5 and 10 A.

GSD8 series dc drives are capable of factory or field configurations for a variety of industrial applications. The drives make use of either a pulse accumulation algorithm or a velocity PID algorithm that can be easily configured for operation as a speed controller, time-based process controller, or follower drive in a master-follower application. GSD8 drives are suitable for applications that require specialized I/O.


All units include a large 4-digit LED display, and standard 1/8 or 1/4 DIN panel mount versions are available. The GSD8 universal power supply accepts 85 to 265 Vac at 50 to 60 Hz without switches or jumpers and a self-contained 5-V power supply is provided for external sensor power.

IronHorse GSD8 series dc drives start at $405.00 and are backed by a one-year warranty.
