Dynamatic DCD Drives
DCD Drives are a simple low-cost solution featuring a TEFC AC induction motor, with multiple voltage and 50/60 Hz options. The C-face motor is flange mounted to the maintenance free Eddy Current coupling.
What is it?
DCDs are a combination of an air-cooled, adjustable speed clutch and a flange mounted AC induction motor. Simple, low-cost dependability that is readily interchangeable with models TCD and CD. DCDs transmit torque at adjustable speeds. There is no physical contact between input and output members. This results in smooth response, thereby eliminating shock and loading and extending equipment life. All drives have an integral tachometer generator mounted around the output shaft to provide feedback signal to the drive’s controller. The controller provides the DC excitation for the clutch coil. The feedback signal from the tachometer generator is used as a reference signal within the controller to maintain accurate speed regulation.
