The IronHorse GSD8 series of DC drives is a microprocessor-based design with non-volatile memory storage that is programmable with adjustable parameters, programmable alarm outputs and offers a digital closed-loop algorithm for motor control. GSD8 output power available is 1/2 to 1hp at 120 VAC input and 1 to 2hp at 240 VAC input; output voltage is 90 VDC (120 VAC) and 180 VDC (240 VAC). Maximum current ratings are 5A and 10A.

GSD8 series DC drives are capable of factory or field configurations for a variety of industrial applications. GSD8 DC drives make use of either a pulse accumulation algorithm or a velocity PID algorithm that can be easily configured for operation as a speed controller, time-based process controller, or follower drive in a master-follower application. GSD8 drives are an ideal match for applications that require specialized I/O.

All units include a large 4-digit LED display; standard 1/8 or 1/4 DIN panel mount versions are available. The GSD8 universal power supply accepts 85-265 VAC at 50-60 Hz without switches or jumpers and a self-contained 5V power supply is provided for external sensor power.

IronHorse GSD8 Series DC drives from AutomationDirect start at $405.00 and are backed by a one-year warranty.

DanfossWith more than one million square feet of exhibit and meeting space, the LEED Platinum-certified Enercare Centre at Exhibition Place in Toronto, Ontario, is the ninth-largest convention centre in North America. Located on the shores of Lake Ontario, the convection centre experiences the extreme weather that the Great Lakes region is known for – with temperatures ranging from -31°C (-24°F) to 40°C (105°F).

That puts a big burden on Exhibition Place’s HVAC equipment to keep the pace comfortable for more than 5.5 million visitors attending meetings, conventions, and exhibitions throughout the year.

Motor Feature


50 HP 1-to-3 Microgrid Power Source Single Phase Power Solutions introduces the 50 HP 1-to-3 Microgrid Power Source featuring a patented BELLE Motor with Written-Pole technology to deliver three-phase power from single-phase utility service. The 50 HP 1-to-3 can be used to operate a 25 HP motor three-phase motor, and multiple other motors up the remaining 25 HP of capacity. Ideal for areas without three-phase service, this revolutionary approach eliminates the high fuel and maintenance costs, and the pollution of fossil-fuel-powered Gen-Sets, while delivering superior power quality to that of a conventional phase converter.  It is far more cost effective than extending 3-phase power where it is not currently available.
