Products AutomationDirect DC drives GSD8 series wastewater

The IronHorse GSD8 series DC drives are compact, microprocessor-based motor controllers from AutomationDirect capable of factory or field configurations for a variety of applications such as water and wastewater treatment systems, conveyor oven controllers, and synchronized conveyer lines.

The DC drives series makes use of either a pulse accumulation algorithm (GDS8-240-5C) or a velocity PID algorithm (all other GSD8 drives) that can be easily configured for operation as a speed controller, time-based process controller, or follower drive in a master-slave application.

Using modular design techniques, the GSD8 drives are perfect for applications that require specialized I/O.

Features of the motor controllers include a European terminal block, 1/8 or 1/4 DIN panel mounting, and NEMA 4X standards met when used with NEMA 4X enclosures.
