AutomationDirect's IronHorse line of motors and drives now includes the GSD series of DC drives. IronHorse GSD drives are simple analog devices that vary motor speed by varying voltage to the motor.
IronHorse GSD1 series DC drives are high-performance Pulse-Width-Modulated (PWM) controllers for 12 to 36 volt battery/solar-powered equipment providing smooth control with high-efficiency operation.
IronHorse GSD3 series drives are general-purpose, economical variable speed controllers for small DC and universal motor applications up to 1/3 hp. Open-frame and NEMA 4 enclosed models are available with dual input voltages (12/24 VAC or 120/240 VAC) with a DC output current rating of 2 Amps, adjustable trim pot settings, and quick-connect terminal pins.
GSD4 series drives provide cost efficient, reliable control for permanent magnet, shunt-wound, and universal motors up to 2 hp. The drives, offered in dual voltage 120/240 VAC or 24/36 VAC models, incorporate up-to-date design and engineering in a compact package.
IronHorse GSD5 series DC drives offer superb flexibility, reliability, and value. This general purpose, economical line of drives, rated to 2 hp, provides the ultimate in standard features and versatility. With dual input voltage (120/240 VAC and 50/60Hz), GSD5 series drives are offered in open-frame and NEMA 4/12 enclosed models.
The reliable, versatile, and economical GSD6 DC drive is the most fully-featured IronHorse analog DC drive, offering many standard features typically offered as options by other DC drives. An excellent off-the-shelf control device, the GSD6 series drives feature dual input voltage (120/240 VAC and 50/60 Hz) via slide selector, adjustable horsepower settings up to 3 hp, full-wave bridge supply, 50:1 speed range, transient voltage protection, DC tachometer feedback, and more.
The IronHorse GSD7 series DC drives, available up to 2 hp, are designed for instant reversing, quick stopping, and rapid cycling to outperform other dynamic braking and reversing drives by utilizing unique zero-speed detection and dynamic braking circuits; the zero-speed detect circuit also eliminates motor plug reversing problems; additional features include 0.5-second fixed acceleration, automatic dynamic braking on power loss, line voltage compensation, and more.
Welcome to Kickstart where you get to see new products here at AutomationDirect. Today I am going to show you our new DC Drives by our brand: Ironhorse. We started offering DC motors and now we have the drives to control them. There is a huge install of DC motors and drives in the industrial environment because they are less expensive than AC drives and typically have a better low speed performance and are great choices for battery operated jobs, portable machines and more. There are 37 new parts with this product launch with 6 GSD families and several accessories. We have input voltages with Dual voltages of 12 & 24 volt DC, 12 & 24 volt AC and 120 & 240 volt AC with output voltages of 12, 24, 90 and 180 volts DC! We offer units with Output currents all the way up to 20amps and horsepower ratings from 1/50th up to 3 horsepower. These drives are available in open frame and in NEMA 4 enclosure versions. Our GSD Ironhorse DC drives are Simple analog devices that you can tune with the potentiometer. They are quick and simple to install usually with 2 input wires and 2 motor wires. Accessories are available like speed potentiometers, reverse switches, acceleration/deceleration adjustment cards and more like this Digital programmable potentiometer. You can find the agency approvals and specs for these new IronHorse DC Drives on our website at: www.automationdirect.com Don't forget: we sell DC motors, AC Drives, motors, controls, connection wire and more.
