M1 DC Motor Control

M1 Series

Mounted on a gold chassis, the compact M1 has a smaller footprint than competitive units with the same current rating. In addition, setting the M1 for use with small horsepower motors (1/20 to 1HP) is easy with a jumper that is provided. When installed, the jumper sets the trimmer pot tuning ranges to a level appropriate for smaller motors.

*The M1 has a programmable chip that sets the range for the acceleration, deceleration, current limit and IR compensation trimmer pots. The ranges can be pre-programmed by the factory to accommodate specific application requirements. With a custom program the trimmer pots can be eliminated if desired to prevent user adjustment.

The M1 has a safety feature not found on many other drives. After any motor stall, the M1 will ramp to the set speed following the acceleration setting instead of ramping up at an unsafe, uncontrolled rate.

Other features include a wider than typical IR compensation adjustment range allowing for finer tuning of more motor types and two choices for connecting to the inhibit (start/stop control) function. Connect using the plug and cable assembly 201-0024 or simply connect to spade terminals.

With so many features in such a compact size, the M1 is ideal for both OEMs and users in a wide variety of applications.

Potentiometer Kit 202-0031 is included with a purchase of the M1
