Micro-Processor Based Digital DC Drives from AutomationDirect

The IronHorse® GSD8 series of DC drives is a microprocessor-based design with non-volatile memory storage that is programmable with adjustable parameters, programmable alarm outputs and offers a digital closed-loop algorithm for motor control. GSD8 output power available is 1/2 to 1hp at 120 VAC input and 1 to 2hp at 240 VAC input; output voltage is 90 VDC (120 VAC) and 180 VDC (240 VAC). Maximum current ratings are 5A and 10A.

GSD8 series DC drives are capable of factory or field configurations for a variety of industrial applications. GSD8 DC drives make use of either a pulse accumulation algorithm or a velocity PID algorithm that can be easily configured for operation as a speed controller, time-based process controller, or follower drive in a master-follower application. GSD8 drives are an ideal match for applications that require specialized I/O.

All units include a large 4-digit LED display; standard 1/8 or 1/4 DIN panel mount versions are available. The GSD8 universal power supply accepts 85-265 VAC at 50-60 Hz without switches or jumpers and a self-contained 5V power supply is provided for external sensor power.

IronHorse GSD8 Series DC drives from AutomationDirect start at $405.00 and are backed by a one-year warranty.
