KB Electronics, Inc. Key Developments

KB Electronics, Inc. Expands its NEMA 4X Drive Offering with New KBAC Hybrid Models

KB Electronics, Inc. expands its NEMA 4X drive offering with new KBAC Hybrid models rated 5HP @ 230 VAC and 10HP @ 460 VAC. Model KBAC-217 is rated 5HP and operates from a 230 VAC line. Model KBAC-416 is rated 10HP and operates from a 460 VAC line. The drives are housed in a rugged NEMA 4X /IP65 die-cast aluminum enclosure with a hinged cover. They are washdown and watertight for indoor and outdoor use. S-suffix models (e.g. KBAC-217S) contain a factory installed On/Off AC Line Switch. The switch is equipped with a mechanical interlock that prevents the drive cover from being opened unless the switch is set to the OFF ("O") position. The switch also contains a safety lockout feature that can be used with a padlock, which prevents the drive from being turned on while the related equipment is being serviced. AC Line Filter (Available for all Models): Provides Class RFI (EMI) suppression. Complies with CE Council Directive 89/336/EEC Industrial Standard. Add suffix "F" to any drive model.

KB Electronics, Inc. Introduces New Battery Powered DC/DC Low Voltage Motor Speed Control

KB Electronics, Inc. introduced two battery powered DC/DC low voltage motor speed control models. The KBBW Series of Pulse Width Modulated (PWM) DC/DC motor speed controls provide excellent dynamic response to load variations. The efficient PWM waveform produces an almost pure DC current to the motor which provides low audible motor noise, and long brush life. Pulse-by-pulse current limit provides short circuit protection and prevents control damage due to shorted motors. Model KBBW-12 operates on 12 VDC and model KBBW-22 operates on 24 VDC. The Plug-In Horsepower Resistor (PHR) (supplied separately) eliminates the need for recalibrating the IR Compensation and Current Limit settings when the control is used on various horsepower motors. Quick-connect terminals are standard for all connections to the drive. Adjustable trimpots allow the drive to be tailored to specific applications. The Inhibit Circuit can be used to stop and start the drive electronically with a switch or contact. The 5 kO potentiometer (supplied), a 0 – 5 Volt DC analog signal, or a PWM microprocessor output signal can be used to control motor speed. The optional Auxiliary Heat Sink Kit (Part No. 9142) increases the drive's current rating from 14 Amps DC to 20 Amps DC.
