DLM V-Drives

September 2019 Motion Control & Drives

DLM V-Drives control the latest generation of permanent magnet and standard induction motors. DLM offers the AMC (advanced motor control) and EPC (efficient pump control) V-Drives, which are available in IP20, IP55 and IP66 enclosures.

V-Drive AMC

These drives offer the perfect combination of high performance together with ease of use to allow even the most demanding applications such as slurry pumps, cranes, conveyors and plastic injection moulding pumps to be resolved easily, using:

• Sensorless vector control providing up to 200% torque from zero speed to ensure reliable starting and accurate speed control under all load conditions.

• PM motor control that allows upgrading to latest generation of high efficiency permanent magnet motors.

• I/O and communications: the AMC V-Drive supports a wide range of protocols for modern industrial requirements.

Low installation cost is achieved through features such as a built-in EMC filter and an integral brake transistor.

V-Drive EPC

This range offers Optiflow as standard on every unit to provide coordinated pump station control. This allows multiple pumps to be controlled, each at a variable speed to ensure maximum energy saving. Automatic reconfiguring is offered should a pump fail, including the master. An internal PID controller is provided that is fully integrated with HVAC and energy efficient features, presented in a user friendly menu to ensure ease of use and fast commissioning. The drives also support a wide range of protocols including those for mining, process control and HVAC requirements including pumps, fans and compressors.

Smart tools for all V-Drive VSDs

Optistick Smart is a USB stick utilising Bluetooth and near field communication. This handy feature allows copying, restoring and backup of the V-Drive parameters. It also provides a Bluetooth interface to a PC running Optitools Studio or the Optitools Mobile app on a smart-phone for convenient mobile commissioning within range.
