Advanced Performance

  • Digital control of the magnet’s demagnetizing current means the magnet cleans the load faster and more consistently, increasing throughput
  • Exclusive OmniBeam™ feature allows the operator to enable any combination of up to four unique magnets to precisely match individual load requirements
  • Stepped current allows you to program the drive to lift/clean a single slab or a stack of slabs, reducing cycles and improving throughput
  • Power loss ride-through continues to energize the magnet to keep the control running and current flowing through the magnet when main power is lost

Improved Safety and Protection

  • MagnePulse DMC automatically removes magnet power during a fault event, preventing damage to the drive and magnet
  • Open/short circuit detection automatically disables current to the magnet if a cable is cut, avoiding control and magnet damage while improving plant safety
  • Over-temperature protection utilizes the magnet’s resistance to determine its temperature, preventing magnet damage and increasing life expectancy
  • Digitally control the rate of current change to prevent voltage spikes or minimize drop time
  • Password protection stops unauthorized users from changing the control characteristics

Increased Production and Efficiency

  • Reduced lifting current maintains a full load while saving energy, lengthening magnet life, and increasing average lift capacity
  • Efficient use of energy reduces magnet heating up to 50%, reducing or eliminating the need for magnet change-outs
  • Flexible control options include single-input, dual-input, stepped-input, analog or serial current references as well as a programmable input to maximize magnet and crane performance
  • Twenty-five drive, magnet and control status monitors check magnet current, voltage, resistance, temperature, DC bus voltage, and control variables to simplify process optimization

Enhanced Programmability and Diagnostics

  • Comprehensive software provides superior flexibility and allows for quick parameter changes — software upgrades can be flashed from a PC
  • Fully compatible with IMPULSE®•Link 4.1 Basic and IMPULSE•Link 4.1 Wireless Diagnostic System (WDS) allowing you to upload, download and monitor parameters using a hardwired or wireless link to your PC

Flexible Options
MagnePulse DMC can be easily retrofitted into your current framework, using existing operator controls and connections. Magnetek can also provide a pre-engineered panel with all the components needed to provide complete magnet control. Panel accessory options include E-stop, fan kits, and circuit breakers. MagnePulse DMC may also be added to a custom panel, designed and built to your exact specifications.
