The Control Techniques Focus 3 drive is a single-phase analog drive for DC motors. The Focus 3 provides anywhere from ¼ to 5 horsepower and has 2 regenerative and 2 non-regenerative chassis units. Several measures can be taken to keep your drive functioning its best:
Be sure to keep your drive free of dust, dirt, oil, caustic atmosphere and excessive moisture.
The control should always be set away from any machines that have a high ambient temperature.
Air flow should not be restricted by other equipment.
Keep the drive away from high vibration areas that could cause the connections to loosen or chafe the wires.
The Control Techniques Unidrive Option and Solution Modules will enhance the functionality of your variable speed drives, allowing them to consistently run at peak performance. The modules will easily integrate with your existing automation system. A high speed parallel bus is used between the drive and the module which helps remove delays and will improve the drives reaction time.
The Control TechniquesCommander SE Microdrive series is an AC open loop vector that provides great flexibility as well as a small footprint. Although this series is reliable you may encounter one of the HF Trip codes listed below. These codes are a result of an internal error in the drive. Most often these trip codes can be resolved by powering down and allowing the drive sit for 5 minutes before powering up again.
If the HF Fault code does not clear then your drive will likely require a repair.
