NORTHFIELD, IL (December 2014) – Bodine Electric Company’s newest AC motor speed control is simple to set up and to operate, and it features an extremely rugged NEMA-4X / IP-65 enclosure. The control is ideal for stand-alone AC gearmotor applications that require variable speed, controlled acceleration and reversing. Typical applications include conveyor systems, packaging machines, food processing equipment, medical or lab equipment and a wide range of other industrial automation equipment.
The model 2999 Pacesetter™ AC speed control is designed to drive 230 VAC, 50 or 60 Hz, inverter-duty, 3-phase gearmotors and motors that are rated up to 1 HP (746 Watts). It operates from a single-phase, 115 or 230 VAC line, and is housed in a NEMA-4X / IP-65 washdown and watertight aluminum die-cast enclosure. The control’s sine wave coded Pulse Width Modulated (PWM) output provides high motor efficiency and low noise. Linear acceleration and deceleration can be adjusted, making the control suitable for soft-start applications.
