New Hydraulic Foot Brake Software Available For Use With IMPULSE®•VG+ Series 2 Drives
MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis. - January 5, 2004 - Magnetek's Electromotive Systems Division today introduced their new Hydraulic Foot Brake Software for IMPULSE®•VG+Series 2 drives. The software is the ideal solution for overhead bridge traveling cranes utilizing hydraulic brakes on the bridge or trolley, where it's imperative that the control of the drive be coordinated with the brakes. Since hydraulic foot brakes control the braking torque applied, no dynamic braking is provided by the variable frequency drive. When the operator moves the master switch to the neutral position, IMPULSE® Hydraulic Foot Brake Software allows the drive to smoothly regain control of the coasting bridge or trolley motor.
For additional information on the features and benefits of this software, please contact the Electromotive Systems Controls Sales Department at 1-800-288-8178. Electromotive Systems, a division of Magnetek, Inc., is a leading designer and manufacturer of motor controls, radio remote controls, and electrification products for the overhead material handling industry.
