DC Drive Replacement

Filed under: Obsolete Drives,Uncategorized — Tags: , , — novaadmin @ 9:01 pm

Nova Systems recently completed replacing a failed, obsolete DC motor drive on an Aluminum extruder. This drive was connected to an unusually designed DC motor with a series-connected field coil. Nova was able to find a creative solution to control this existing motor with a modern Carotron Blazer DC drive, while replacing a minimum of external components. This minimized expense and down-time to the customer.

We were able to achieve this while only having an incomplete set of schematics, largely not written in English.

If you have an old or obsolete DC motor drive that needs to be updated, Nova Systems can help.

Robotic Arm motor drives

Once again, robust mechanics will outlive the electronics. So, does one throw out the old for the new? In many cases, Nova can help renew original equipment. In a recent service project, we replaced obsolete Infranor motor drives with the latest Infranor product. The replacement drives were shipped next day from factory stock. The original equipment dated back to the 1995 era, but the new drives, with the help of Nova engineering, interfaced seamlessly between the existing motors and the existing Adept controller. Three days after receiving the drives, the system was running.

Nova Systems has a solution for an obsolete thermoformer chain index drive. Once popular Baldor/Sweo drives can now be upgraded with the next generation ABB (ABB acquired Baldor) servo drives. The existing SMCC motion card can be reused, as can the existing servo motor.
