The MS196 is a closed-loop velocity controller designed for use with AC and DC variable speed drives of any horsepower. There are six status and alarm outputs and four programmable setpoints in Master and Follower mode. The MS196 can be used as a stand alone controller regulating a single motor to 0.01%, or as a Follower in more complex multi-motor systems. An eight character alphanumeric display provides the operator with plain English prompts making operation and programming simple and user friendly. For security purposes, there is also selectable lockout of the front panel function keys. An auxiliary or trim input is also available for applications that require an input such as a load cell or dancer arm to influence the setpoint or ratio.
