Take control of the most demanding motor control applications.

With 2 Quadrant and 4 Quadrant models, you can use the PL/X to control DC motors up to 2250Amps, with all models available from stock.

The PL/X series DC Drive is a fully digital DC drive system providing 5kW – 980kW output power. Available in 2Q (single direction) and 4Q (fully regenerative) variants, the range comprises 5 compact chassis sizes with models rated from 12A to 2250A output current.  The PL/X boasts an extremely versatile operating input voltage range of 12V – 500VAC as standard. Options are available for 600V and 690VAC input.

COMPACT & VERSATILE

The PL/X boasts the best power density from any comparable DC Drive on the market. Available in 2Q (single direction) and 4Q (fully regenerative) variants, the range comprises 5 compact chassis sizes with models rated from 12A to 2250A output current. The PL/X boasts an extremely versatile operating input voltage range of 12V – 500VAC as standard. Options are available for 600V and 690VAC input.

FULLY CONFIGURABLE & EASY TO CONTROL

All models include a 40-character alphanumeric backlit display that makes it easier to quickly navigate through an extensive range of software functions. The PL/X is fitted with 17 digital inputs and 8 analogue inputs as standard, with 7 digital outputs and 4 analogue outputs.

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

POWERFUL ETHERNET

The PL/X can be fully equipped for the Industrial Internet Of Things (IIOT). All PL/X models are available with integrated 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. Options for field bus systems include Ethernet, Profibus, CANbus, Modbus, DeviceNet and many more.

All frame sizes are CE approved with UL & CuL listings available on frame sizes 12 – 630A output power.
