The KBMG are ultracompact, full-wave regenerative drives capable of operating DC PM or Shunt motors in a bidirectional mode.  Its (4) quadrant operation provides forward and reverse torque in both speed directions.  This allows the control to maintain constant speed with overhauling loads and provides rapid reversing and controlled braking. kbmg

KBMG Applications

Because of its excellent controllability and response time, the KBMG can replace servos in many applications.  The control is factory set for armature feedback, which provides up to 1% load regulation over a motor base speed of 50:1. Tachgenerator feedback is also provided for superior load regulation if required.  A simple jumper setting converts the KBMG to a torque control.  In this mode, motor torque rather than motor speed is controlled.  An important feature of the drive is the factory-calibrated, built-in, selectable motor current jumper.  It eliminates the need to recalibrate IR Comp and Current Limit for most applications.

The control contains an Enable function that can be used to start and stop the motor electronically via a contact closure. Through a jumper selection, the motor can be controlled to rapidly “regenerate to stop” or to “coast to stop.” KB’s exclusive Auto Inhibit® circuit provides safe, smooth starting even during rapid cycling of the AC line. The Overspeed Protect Circuit prevents failure of the power bridge in extreme overhauling conditions.

Reliability of the KBMG is further enhanced with the use of a high speed current limit circuit and MOV transient protection. LED’s, which can be used for diagnostics, are provided for power on and motor overload. A rugged extruded aluminum heat sink ensures enhanced heat transfer, which provides a higher control rating while maintaining cooler running SCR’s. The KBMG contains a finger-safe cover to meet the IP-20 Standard. Power connections to the KBMG are made via quick connect terminals and signal input connections are made via a removable barrier terminal block. A 5k remote potentiometer and full operating instructions are supplied.
