Solid State Electromagnet Controller
The DMC-5 Electromagnet Controller is designed to control Industrial automation electromagnets such as those used on robotics, pick and place units, gantries, etc. Traditionally, automation electromagnets are controlled by simple relays which do not have the capability to effectively demagnetize the material being handled which results in unreliable material release. The DMC-5 introduces a number of features to make sure that material is released effectively every time. These features include alternating polarity every cycle to eliminate residual magnetism in the magnet and tooling, a current based demagnetization scheme at release, and infinitely variable output power (for magnet strength).
The DMC-5 Electromagnet Controller also includes advanced diagnostic features such as displaying magnet current during operation and wire break detection for the magnet circuit. The DMC-5 is the successor to the DMC-3 which has proven its effectiveness for 15 years.
