MGC403-1.5 DC Cycling Controls

MGC403-1.5 DC Motor Control

MGC Series

The MGC403 Series is one of the most feature-rich 4Q regen drives on the market. Ideal for OEMs and end users looking for a powerful, but simple to apply regenerative control. Users can easily select from a variety of operational modes including speed, torque, cycling and positioning. The built-in Motor Overload Protection meets UL 61800-5-1 and negates the need for external devices that will be required by other drives. With our standard mounting pattern and footprint, error codes for easy trouble shooting, and factory mounted fuse option, the MCC403 is designed for both new and retro-fit applications. With an on-board microprocessor, the MGC Series can also be fitted with custom programming to suite an OEMs need as well as provide Modbus communication. The MGC Series combines functionality and efficiency with affordability.

Potentiometer Kit 202-0169 is included with a purchase of the MGC403-1.5

  • ACE Footprint: Traditional ACE mounting pattern and footprint
  • Microprocessor Based: Allows custom programming for OEMs
  • Dual Analog Inputs: MGC models can accept 2 command signals, making wiring easier for applications requiring two potentiometers, a Run/Jog, or Auto/Manual setup. Also allows for individual control of speed and torque
  • 7 Modes of Operation:
    • Speed
    • Torque
    • Linear Torque
    • Independent Speed & Torque
    • Cycling with Limit Switches
    • Cycling with Feedback
    • Positioning
  • Field Supply: Voltage output to energize the field winding of a shunt-wound motor
  • 4Q Reversing: Regenerative / 4-Quadrant drives have the ability to perfrom quick and contactorless braking and/or reversing on-the-fly
  • Stopping Modes: Inhibit for braking to a stop. Enable for coasting to a stop. Can be used for rapid starting and stopping
  • Configurable Enable and Inhibit: Can be configured to be either normally open or normally closed
  • 3-Wire Start/Stop: Inhibit and Enable can be setup to mimic a 3-Wire Start/Stop
  • Quick Disconnect Terminal Allows for quicker wiring and setup
  • Diagnostic LEDs: Current Limit
