DOWNLOAD SERIES 181/182 Manual

The Series 181 & 182 are full wave DC drives designed for light to middle duty industrial applications. The 181 & 182 can operate on either 115 or 230 VAC, 50 or 60 Hz by a simple jumper selection. The 181 & 182 also have a jumper selection for the output of 90 VDC when operating on 230 VAC input. The model 181 controls 1/50 up to 2 HP DC Motors and the model 182 controls 1/50 up to 3 HP DC Motors.

To select horsepower adjust the current limit setting and add the appropriate heatsinking options for higher horsepower applications. Both units have four standard performance adjustments in a very compact package; maximum speed, minimum speed, current limit, and I.R. compensation. These performance adjustments make the 181 & 182 adaptable to the most demanding applications.

They also come with acceleration and deceleration trimpots. If your application does not require accel and/or decel, simply set the trimpot at zero. Connections to the 181 & 182 supplied via terminal block connections or 1/4″ quick connections.
