Speed Control, Digital DC, .15A-1/2 / 1/8-1.0hp, 1/8 DIN

Our Dart MD10P is 1/8 DIN size with a horsepower range of 1/50 to 1/2 (90V) and 1/8 to 1 (180V).

The MD Series is a compact, programmable DC speed control with digital closed loop feedback and LED display for DC motors rated to 2 horsepower. An on-board microprocessor with non-volatile memory, coupled with sophisticated internal software, makes Dart's Micro-Drive the ultimate value in accuracy and control.

Friendly front-panel field programming permits customizing the MD for specific applications. The MD can be set to display the target speed directly in RPM, FPM, GPM, process time, or any other engineering unit. Programmable parameters include maximum and minimum set speed, decimal points, and operating mode (master or follower).

The Micro-Drive is simple to operate: set the desired RPM, rate, or time in the large 1/2" LED display by depressing the "Up" and "Down" pushbuttons on the front panel. Settings can be one digit at a time or fast sweep. The Micro-Drive settings are exact and repeatable. It will precisely control speed to ±1/2 RPM of set speed, long term. No calibrations of the control are necessary.

The MD10P and MD3P have 1/8 DIN and 1/4 DIN industry standard cutout dimensions respectively, providing easy panel installations.

The flexibility of Dart's Micro-Drive design makes it uniquely suited for many commercial and industrial applications, such as: 

• Conveyor ovens used in food preparation, UV curing processes, and heat shrink packaging 
• Electronic solder re-flow and drying processes 
• Industrial auger and mixing equipment 
• Medical lab mixing equipment 
• Industrial and commercial spray equipment 
• Printing process equipment 
• Pump and chemical metering systems
