Leading the way in innovative product development, Magnetek is excited to offer our Sway Control System (SCS) Series 2 to the overhead material handling industry.
This custom software is embedded in our IMPULSE®•G+ Series 4 variable frequency drives for new or existing crane control systems without the need for external programmable logic controllers or costly height measurement devices.
Our Sway Control System improves productivity by allowing the crane operator to concentrate on load engagement/disengagement rather than focusing on minimizing load swing. The system also improves the accuracy of load placement and reduces material damage caused by incidental contact of swinging loads.
SCS Series 2 Benefits:
Enhances safety in operations and reduce the potential for personnel injuries and damage to equipment
Reduces maintenance costs and downtime by decreasing stresses on structural, mechanical, and control components
SCS Series 2 has been designed to:
Require only one IMPULSE Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) per traverse motion with SCS software. Additional IMPULSE VFDs are connected in a Master/Slave fashion
Operate in V/F, Open Loop Vector and Flux Vector* control methods
Be compatible with existing master switch and radio control configurations such as Multi-step and Infinitely Variable Uni-Polar/Bi-Polar analog
Eliminate the need for an external programmable logic controller
Accept a hook height measurement when combined with an IMPULSE®•VG+ Series 4* hoist drive
Eliminate the need for a high maintenance feedback device such as an absolute encoder. The system can also be configured to operate in an operating hook height “zone”
