Thyristor Stack Controllers
14 March 2013
Thyristor stack controllers are used in a wide range of industries where high power electric DC motors are involved, for example in hot rolling mills, plastic extruders, rubber mixers and many more.
Sprint Electric’s PLXD range is reported to be ideal for controlling DC 6 pulse or 12 pulse, 2 Quadrant or 4 Quadrant thyristor power stacks.
The controllers can be designed into a new installation, or easily retrofitted to an existing thyristor power stack where the control electronics needs updating or requires adding into a field bus topography network. The PLXD can be supplied with all the latest field bus protocols including Profibus, Modbus RTU, Modbus TCP/IP, CanOpen, Devicenet, Ethernet and more. The same unit is used for 2 Quadrant and 4 Quadrant power stacks. 6 Pulse and 12 Pulse can also be accommodated.
