DCH401-5-CYC Cycling Control

DCH401-5-CYC Low Voltage Motor Control

The DCH401-5-CYC is a modified version of our DCH401-5 for cycling applications. It is designed to cycle the motor between two limit switches. There are two modes; JOG and CYCLE. In JOG mode, there are two pushbuttons, jog forward and jog reverse. The motor will run in the commanded direction until the corresponding limit switch is activated. In CYCLE mode, the motor will run forward when the start pushbutton is closed until it activates the forward limit switch, then reverse until it activates the reverse limit switch. The drive is programmed for only one cycle when the start pushbutton is closed, but keeping a maintained closed pushbutton will cause the drive to continuously cycle.

The DCH series combines an AC to DC switching power supply with a regenerative PWM drive, creating an all in one solution to applications requiring control of 12 or 24 VDC motors when only 115 or 230 VAC power is available. The microprocessor design allows the drive to be programmed for custom applications or routines to meet an OEMs needs. With an isolated front end, this series is compatible with a 0-5 or 0-10 VDC analog from any PLC and with it's 8-bit on-board microprocessor, the DCH can be customized in many applications to even replace a PLC.

  • Microprocessor Based: Allows custom programming for OEMs
  • All-in-One Package: Combines a custom regen-capable switching power supply with low voltage drive
  • True Low Voltage Output: Allows control over low voltage motors without the negative effects of current spikes or a large BUS voltage associated with typical 115/230 VAC SCR and PWM controls
  • 4Q Reversing: Regenerative / 4-Quadrant drives have the ability to perform quick and contactorless braking and/or reversing-on-the-fly
  • Isolated Logic: Allows floating or grounded 0 - 5 or 0 - 10 VDC signals
  • Stopping Modes: Forward and reverse inhibits can be set for N.O. or N.C. to brake to a stop. Can be used for rapid starting and stopping
  • Diagnostic LEDs: Power, Current Limit
  • Cycling Control: Standard drive has been modified to allow for cycling between limit switches.
