Electric Power / Controls VARIABLE SPEED DRIVES
MODELS 3250, 3260

GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The Lab-Volt Variable Speed Drives enable students to Speed, Maximum Speed, Acceleration, IR Compensation
develop competence in operating and troubleshooting a (Regulation), and Current Limit by means of five po-
control system that includes industrial type drives. The tentiometers located on the main circuit board. The
trainers are designed to work with the Lab-Volt 3100 speed of the motor is adjusted by the means of a potenti-
and 8000 series controls and motors, as well as most ometer located on the faceplate of the drive or an insu-
commercial motors. Courseware includes Operation lated voltage source of 0 to 12 V dc.
Manual and Project Job Sheets addressing set up and
operation of the drive and its controls. Model 3260 AC Variable Speed Drive
The Model 3260 AC Variable Speed Drive uses the latest
Model 3250 DC Variable Speed Drive solid state PWM technology to control a 3-phase squirrel
This is an industrial type drive whose power circuitry is cage induction motor. A keypad and an LCD screen allow
composed of a half bridge with two thyristors and modification and visualization of many different parame-
two diodes. A full wave field voltage is provided for shunt ters, such as min/max speed, acceleration/deceleration
wound motors. The drive includes controls for Minimum time, torque, etc.

Speed can be controlled using either the digital key- wall outlet. This single-phase option is not available for
pad or the analog input on the front panel of the module. 220 V and 240 V, 50 Hz, line supplies. Model 3260-2
requires three-phase supply. The three-phase supply is
applied at the 4-mm banana jacks on the front panel of
the module.
