Trombetta releases reversible Intelligent Motor Controller
February 14, 2011 - Trombetta releases reversible Intelligent Motor Controller that can be customized to meet DC motor application requirements. The Intelligent Motor Controller is capable of switching loads up to 100 amps and providing dynamic braking along with smooth transitions between forward and reverse directions. The controller can incorporate pre-set limits to protect the electrical system, including over-voltage protection, over-current protection, over-temperature shut down, low-voltage disconnect, end of travel/ stalled motor detection.
In addition, the Intelligent Motor Controller can be customized to provide advanced controls such as proportional speed, programmed acceleration/deceleration, and battery separation in multi-battery systems.
Featuring a voltage range of 6V DC to 48V DC and a IP66/67 rating, the Intelligent Motor Controller is ideal for controlling DC Motors used in applications such as: switchgear; truck/train tarp systems; winches/windlasses; bow thrusters; boat lifts; truck lifts; gun turrets; snow plows; RV slides/ RV stabilizing; solar panel positioning, electro-hydraulic door systems, and various other electro-hydraulic applications.
Pricing is in the $50 to $200 range for volumes as low as 1,000 pieces with a lead time of 20 weeks.
