NOTE: To view specific connectivity options for a particular MForce model, see Connector options by P/N tab above.

Communication Converters

Electrically Isolated, in-line converters pre-wired with mating connectors to conveniently set parameters and program a single MForce via a PC USB port.

Converter Part Number Mating Connector Type
MD-CC402-001 (USB to RS-422/485) 10-Pin Friction Lock Wire Crimp

If building your own cabling, you will need:

  • RS-422/485 inline converter or PC card
  • Cabling with appropriate mating connectors for the MDrive model selected
  • For information on Party Mode (Multidrop) communications view the product manual

 

Prototype Development Cables

Prototype development cables are designed to speed test/development with pre-wired mating connectors that have flying leads other end. No prototype development cables are available for the MForce using the 12' Flying Leads or Pluggable Clamp Terminal Strip.

Prototype Development Cable P/N Mating Connector Type Signal Type
PD14-2334-FL3 14-Pin Locking Wire Crimp I/O

Drive Protection Module

The function of the DPM75 Drive Protection Module is to limit the surge current and voltage to a safe level when DC input power is switched on and off to a motor drive. This provides the added protection necessary for reliable motor drive operation when switching the DC power, instead of the recommended AC power to the DC power supply. The device is designed to protect the motor drive when operating under all load conditions. This device does not protect the motor drive from wiring the power incorrectly.

The unit is capable of being used with 48, 60, and 75 volt rated motor drives. An external jumper selection is available so the user can match the circuit to their particular application. The DPM75 is capable of a steady state operating current of 4 amps.

The DPM75 can be used for any frame size motor drive, when properly configured. It can also be used for more than one unit provided the current and voltage do not exceed the DPM75's ratings. The maximum DPM75 ratings are 75 volts and 4 amps.
