OMDC-MD10P controllers are used with linear encoders for precise speed control in Omega's manufacturing process for metal sheath thermocouple wire.
Sample Application: Synchronized conveyor controller with jog switch, the slave conveyor 2 will follow changes in speed made to the master conveyor 1. The jog switch allows positioning of conveyor 2 when system is stopped.
The OMDC-MD Series is a compact, programmable DC speed control with digital closed loop feedback and LED display for DC motors rated to 2 horsepower. An on-board microprocessor with non-volatile memory, coupled with sophisticated internal software, makes the OMDC-MD series speed control the ultimate value in accuracy and control. Programmable parameters include maximum and minimum set speed, decimal points, and operating mode (master or follower).
The OMDC-MD series speed control is simple to operate: set the desired RPM, rate, or time in the large 1/2' LED display by depressing the “Up” and “Down” pushbuttons on the front panel. Settings can be one digit at a time or fast sweep. The OMDC-MD series speed control settings are exact and repeatable. It will precisely control speed to ±1/2 RPM of set speed, long term. No calibrations of the control are necessary.
The OMDC-MD speed control is available in both 1/8 DIN and 1/4 DIN industry standard cutout dimensions, providing easy panel installation. These DC motor controllers can be set to RPM, FPM, GRP, process time, or any other engineering unit for easy operation.
