Ease of Control

A 4 button keypad and large alpha-numeric display make it easier to quickly navigate through an extensive range of software functions.

Fully Configurable

The PL/X is fully configurable by the user and comes equipped, as standard, with a comprehensive suite of application blocks.

Fully Controllable

Centre winding macros, spindle orientation and a fully controllable field allow you to control DC motors in a wide range of industrial applications. The PL/X also includes PL Pilot, a windows based, configuration and monitoring software package.

Motor Protection

The extensive range of motor protection features improves your productivity by reducing your downtime. And the unique configuration checker quickly detects any conflicts in your own user-generated configurations.

Simple Integration

To make it easier for you to integrate the PL/X into your control system, the drives are fully isolated and have a small footprint. The PL/X has a number of fieldbus communications options, including: Profibus, DeviceNet, CC-Link, EtherNet/IP, Modbus and CANopen.

Powerful Ethernet

All PL/X models are compatible with drive.web. The drive.web distributed control technology uses Ethernet and powerful graphical tools to provide robust Programmable Peer Control (PPC) for drives and systems.

Technical Highlights:

  • Extremely flexible block diagram including unique 'configuration checker', detects conflicts in user programmed configurations
  • Five feedback transducer options as standard
  • Non volatile trip alarm memory, even after power-down
  • Built in 'oscilloscope' output for full parameter monitoring during commissioning
  • Motorised pot simulator with power off memory
  • Three fully independent, user programmable drive configurations
  • Extensive, multi-function programmable I/O, with over 36 digital & analogue input/output combinations
  • Full suite of centre winding macros included
  • Built in system application blocks with descriptive connection points
  • Unique electronic regenerative stopping facility on selected 2Q models
  • In depth fault monitoring and comprehensive system alarms
  • Serial communications to allow off site programming and remote diagnostics
  • In depth diagnostic facility available from on board display and 'in-built meter'
