Vari Speed® R400 Speed and Torque Controllers for 1/4 to 2 HP DC Motors

The Vari Speed® R400 is a full-wave DC regenerative control that provides high performance four quadrant speed and torque control. The R400 solid state controller converts single phase AC line power into an adjustable DC power to control 1/4 to 2 horsepower DC motors.

The R400's flexible design is easily selectable for speed or torque mode, tachometer voltage, dual voltage and for horsepower size. The R400 is designed with today's most desirable features including isolated input signals, status indicators, alarm outputs. When performing frequent directional changes, the R400 transfers excess system energy back to the AC line rather than wasting additional energy by the use of a dynamic brake resistor.

The R400 is designed, engineered and manufactured in the USA, and is UL and cUL listed.

Cycletrol® 150 DC Adjustable Speed Controllers

Graham's Motors and Controls Cycletrol® Series DC adjustable speed controls provide rapid cycling capabilities, while offering higher reliability and lower maintenance compared to clutch/brake mechanisms. The Cycletrol Series consists of two product lines, the 150 Series rated for up to 60 cycles/minute and the C2000 rated for up to 30 cycles/minute.

Common Features:
  • All Cycletrol digital logic inputs are optically isolated
  • Versatile logic allows direct interfacing with switches and push-buttons or solid state devices
  • LED function lights are easy-to-see indicators of control status
  • Transient protection by voltage clamping MOV's and RC networks protect power components against power spikes
  • Torque limiting by the Cycletrol's adjustable current limit provides motor and drive train protection in the event of machine overloads or jams
  • Heavy-duty aluminum chassis or NEMA 12 enclosures

    • The Cycletrol 150 is the fastest cycling DC motor control in the industry. On-board logic conotrols reduce costly external relays and timing circuits.

      • Cycle rate up to 60 CPM allows quick, repetitive run/stop opetaration with cycling duty permanet magnet motors
      • wide speed range with full torque available dows to 9 rpm
      • Integrated timer enables automatic cycling: eliminate external componets and wiring
      • Start-up current (up to 400%) provides extra starting torque for fast acceleration
      • Solid-state dynamic brake circuit for faster response without the wear normally associated with mechanical system
      • Magnetic circuit breaker standard on NEMA 12 enclosure models
      • CE Rated
