The Motion Power and Motion Remote Controllers of the E-series in direct control 400 V AC or remote control 24 VDC version have for years represented the industry standard in the field of asynchronous BGV D8 and igvw SQ P2 D8 Plus 400V AC rotary current drives and in particular chain hoists such as those of Movecat‘s Eco, Plus, Compact, Ecolite, Pluslite and Plus-C series.
The robust, respectively 3U or 6U MPC metal housings contain all the contactor switches, safety circuits, under-voltage-, phase- and rotary-field-supervision circuitry and main control switches required for operation, as well as, for each channel, an individually adjustable motor protection switch. The operation is performed from a detached remote unit belonging to the MRC ED8 series for 4, 8, 12 or 16 drives.
The E-Controller system forms the foundation for Movecat‘s M-Link system by means of which up to eight MPC controllers forming an integrated network can be centrally controlled and supervised. The integrated safety elements are arranged sequentially to form a ‘safety chain’, so that any operating failure (such as the tripping of a motor protection switch) leads automatically to all the drives connected via M-Link coming to a stop. Furthermore, the runs of all linked MPC controllers can be activated centrally even if a variety of MRC units are being used. The operating status is indicated by LED signal elements on the front panel.
The controllers comply with the EN 60204-32 and EN 13849-1 standards as well as VDE 0113 and are suitable for the control of lifting gear in accordance with the guidelines set out in BGV D8 and igvw SQ P2 D8 Plus, with which they comply in every respect. Typical fields of application include rigging applications in the touring sector and as a setting-up aid for professional events and trade fair applications.
