KB ELECTRONICS

KBIC Series
Variable Speed DC Motor Controls
Features:
  • Plug‑in horsepower resistor® (see chart) allows a single model to be used on a wide range of motors
     
  • MOV transient protection for power bridge protection
     
  • Trimpots: MIN, MAX, ACCEL, IR and CL
     
  • Voltage following
     
  • Inhibit™ (terminal I1 and I2) electronically disconnects armature output voltage
     
  • Auto Inhibit™ comes standard and prevents false starts and high surge currents when cycling the KBIC® control with an AC line
     
  • Dual voltage capable on 230V "D" and "DS" models

KBIC Series Variable Speed DC Motor Controls
KBIC® DC motor speed control is designed for applications demanding performance, reliability and low cost. The patented Direct-Fed™ current limit circuit protects the motor and control against overloads by limiting the maximum level of output current. It also prevents motor failure due to demagnetization of the magnets of PM motors.

The plug-in horsepower resistor® is a unique feature that eliminates the need to recalibrate IR Comp. and CL when the control is used over a wide range of motor horsepower. Additional versatility is achieved with the auxiliary heatsink (optional), which doubles the horsepower rating of each model. The output of the control is a linear function of potentiometer rotation. The KBIC® can be operated in a voltage following mode by supplying an isolated analog signal (0-7 VDC) to the input terminals P2(+) and F-. If an isolated input signal is not available, you can use the optional barrier terminal board signal isolator (KBICSI-5). The controls are terminated as standard with Q-D terminals. A barrier terminal board is available which incorporates both line and armature fuses.
