Thank you for purchasing the KBIC® "Standard of the Industry" DC motor speed control. They are designed for applications demanding good performance, high reliability and low cost. The controls are fabricated with components that have proven reliability, including MOV transient protection, which is used to protect the power bridge. Integrated circuitry is used to provide an uncomplicated design with superior load and line voltage regulation. The patented Direct-Fed™ current limit circuit protects the motor and control against overloads by limiting the maximum level of output current. It also prevents motor failure due to demagnetization of the magnets of PM motors. Acceleration start (adjustable from 0.5 to 4 seconds) provides a smooth start each time the AC power is applied.

A unique feature of the KBIC® control is the Plug-in Horsepower Resistor®. It eliminates the need to recalibrate IR Comp. and CL when the control is used over a wide range of motor horsepower. Additional versatility is achieved by using the Auxiliary Heatsink (optional) which is used to double the horsepower rating of each model. The output of the control is a linear function of potentiometer rotation. The KBIC® can also be operated in a voltage following mode by supplying an isolated analog signal (0-7 VDC) to the input terminals P2(+) and F-. If an isolated input signal is not available, the optional Barrier Terminal Board Signal Isolator (SI-5) can be used. The controls are terminated as standard with Q-D terminals. A Barrier Terminal Board is available which incorporates both line and armature fuses.

The Inhibit™ circuit (Terminals I1 and I2) is provided to electronically disconnect the armature output voltage. Another standard feature is Auto Inhibit. This circuit prevents false starts and high surge currents when cycling the KBIC® control with the AC line.

All models are UL Recognized for the USA and Canada and CE approved.

I.APPLICATION INFORMATION

A.Motor Type – The KBIC® is designed for Permanent Magnet (PM), Shunt Wound and Universal (AC/DC) motors. Controls operated on 115 volt AC inputs are designed for 90 volt SCR rated motors. Controls operated on 230 volt AC inputs are designed for 180 volt SCR rated motors. Use of higher voltage motors will result in reduction of available MAX speed. Also, if motor is not an SCR rated type, the actual AC line amperage at full load should not exceed the motor's DC nameplate rating.

B.Torque Requirements – When replacing an AC induction motor with a DC motor and speed control, consideration must be given to the maximum torque requirements. The full load torque rating of the DC motor must be equal to, or greater than, that of the AC motor.

C.Acceleration Start – The KBIC® contains an adjustable acceleration start feature which allows the motor to smoothly accelerate from 0-full speed over a time period of 0.5-4 seconds. The "ACCEL" is factory set at 2 seconds.

D.Limitation in Use – The KBIC® controls are designed for use on machine applications.

E.Armature Switching – Do not switch the armature without taking proper precautions. (See sec. IV, p. 11)

CAUTION

Consult factory before using on constant horsepower applications such as saws or drill presses. Do not use in explosive atmosphere.

Be sure the KBIC® is used within its maximum ratings. Follow all installation instructions carefully. (Refer to section II.)

II.INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

A.Location and Mounting – The KBIC® controls should be mounted on a flat surface and located in an area where it will not be exposed to contaminants such as water, metal chips, solvents or excessive vibration. When mounting in an enclosure, the air space should be large enough to provide adequate heat dissipation. The maximum allowable ambient temperature at full rating is 45 ºC/113 ºF. Consult factory if more information is required.

B.Initial Setup and Wiring.

1.Install proper size Plug-in Horsepower Resistor® (See chart).

2.The KBIC can be connected to a standard 115V or 230V (±15%) 50/60 Hz AC line based on model selected [Be sure the AC input voltage corresponds to the control voltage rating and the motor rating (e.g. 90-130VDC motor on 115VAC and 180VDC motor on 230VAC)].

3.Follow the recommended supply wire sizes as per table 6, p. 8.

4.Follow the NEC and other electrical codes that apply.

CAUTION: Separate branch protection must be provided on 240V circuits. Do not fuse neutral or grounded conductors.

5.Connect control in accordance to connection diagram - See fig. 3, p. 8.

6.When using a step-down transformer (440 VAC to 220 VAC) be sure the VA rating of the transformer is at least 3 times

the VA rating of the motor.

WARNING: If control is wired to a transformer, do not switch the primary side of transformer to disconnect power or catastrophic failure can result. Always disconnect control from secondary side of transformer.

CAUTION: Do not bundle potentiometer connections (P1, P2, P3) and Inhibit™ connections (I1, I2) with AC line or motor wires.

WARNING: Armature Switching. Do not switch the armature in and out of circuit or catastrophic failure will result. If armature switching is required for dynamic brake or reversing, use model KBRG, KBPB or KBCC-R suffix controls.

NOTE: (Shunt motors only) For 90V DC motors with 50VDC fields and 180VDC motors with 100VDC fields, use half voltage field connections F+ and L1. (See table 7, p. 8)

C.Voltage Following – All models can be controlled with an isolated analog reference voltage (0-7 VDC) in lieu of the main speed potentiometer. The voltage is connected to P2 (+) and F-. The control output voltage will linearly follow the input voltage. The source impedance of the input should be 10K ohms or less. The Min and Max trimpots are rendered inoperative in the voltage following mode. Use auxiliary trimpots for scaling and to limit the control range. If the input signal is not isolated, or is a current signal (4 - 20 mA), the KBSI-240D or SI-5 Barrier Terminal Board Signal Isolator must be used. It will allow direct connection to process controllers and microprocessors.

CAUTION:

1.The voltage feeding P2 and F- must be isolated from the AC line. Do not earth ground P2 or F- to setup a zero or ground reference.

2.Do not bundle signal wires to P2 and F- with AC line or motor connections. If signal wires are over 18 inches, use shielded cables.

D.Fusing – The KBIC® has provision for adding a built-in AC line fuse and armature fuse*. The AC line fuse protects the control against catastrophic failure. If the fuse blows, the control is miswired, the motor is shorted or grounded, or the KBIC® control is defective. The armature fuse provides overload protection for the motor and control. Choose the proper size armature fuse and AC line fuse (see fuse chart table 4, p. 5) by multiplying the maximum DC motor amps by 1.7. Armature and AC line fuse kits are available from your distributor. On domestic 230 Volt AC lines, separate branch circuit protection for each line must be used. All fuses should be normal blow ceramic 3AG or MDA or equivalent. The Barrier Terminal Kit (optional) contains prewired AC line and armature fuses. *Contact your distributor.

III.ADJUSTMENTS AND CONTROL FUNCTIONS

The KBIC® is factory adjusted to provide 0 to full speed range using a 5K potentiometer. Minimum and maximum speed trimpots are provided to change the speed range from other than 0 to full speed. An acceleration start (located directly behind the MIN trimpot) is factory set to provide motor acceleration from 0 to full speed over a time period of 2 seconds (approx.) each time the AC power is applied. The current limiting (CL, or torque output) adjustment is factory set to approximately one and a half times the motor rating. The IR Compensation (IR) is factory adjusted to provide excellent motor regulation under normal operation.

NOTE: In order for the IR comp and CL trimpot settings to be correct, the proper Plug-in Horsepower Resistor® must be installed for the particular motor and input voltage being used. Do not attempt to change the settings of the trimpots unless absolutely necessary since they are factory adjusted to near optimum settings.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

Readjusting the ACCEL time will affect the MAX speed and IR Comp. settings which will have to be readjusted (see this Section). If the ACCEL time is decreased to the minimum time of 0.5 seconds (6 o'clock trimpot position), then increase the IR trimpot 25% CW rotation and decrease the MAX trimpot 20% CCW rotation. If the ACCEL time is increased to the maximum time of 4 seconds (full rotation), then decrease the IR and increase the MAX as per above percentages of rotation.

The following procedure is presented in required order of adjustment.

FIG. 4 – ACCEL TRIMPOT ADJUSTMENT

It should be followed when readjusting all trimpot functions:

 

A. Acceleration Start – (ACCEL trimpot is located directly behind the MIN trimpot.) If the ACCEL is to be readjusted to different times, adjust the trimpot to the desired time according to fig. 4.

B. Maximum Speed Adjustment – Set main speed pot to full speed (maximum CW position). Adjust MAX speed trimpot to new desired setting.

Note: Do not attempt to adjust the MAX speed above the rated motor RPM since unstable motor operation may occur. For moderate changes in the MAX speed, there will be a slight effect on the MIN speed setting when the MIN speed is set at zero. There may be significant variation in the MIN speed setting if the MIN speed is at a higher than zero setting.

C.Minimum Speed Adjustment – If a higher than zero speed is desired, readjust the minimum speed by turning the main speed potentiometer to zero setting (full CCW position). Then adjust the MIN speed trimpot to the desired setting.

10

Note: The MIN speed adjustment will affect the MAX speed setting. Therefore, it is necessary to readjust the MAX speed after the MIN speed, and it may be necessary to repeat the sequence until both the MIN and the MAX speeds are set to the desired levels.

D.Current Limit (CL/Torque Adjustment) – CL circuitry is provided to protect the motor and control against overloads. The CL also limits the inrush current to a safe level during startup. The CL is factory set to approximately 1.5 times the full load rating of the motor. (CL trimpot is nominally set to approx. 50% of full CW rotation.)

Note: The correct value Plug-in Horsepower Resistor® must be installed in order for the CL and IR comp. to operate properly.

Calibration of the CL & IR comp. is normally not required when the proper Plug-in Horsepower Resistor® is installed.

To set the CL to factory specifications adjust as follows:

1.Set main speed potentiometer at approximately 30 - 50% CW rotation. Set CL trimpot to full CCW position.

2.Connect a DC ammeter in series with the armature lead.

3.Lock shaft of motor (be sure CL pot is in full CCW position). Apply power and rotate CL pot CW slowly until DC ammeter reads 1.5 times motor rating (do not exceed 2 times motor rating). Note: Complete this step within 5 seconds to avoid damaging motor.

Note: If only an AC ammeter is available, it can be installed in series with AC input line. Follow above instructions; however, set AC amperage at 0.75 times motor rating.

E.IR Compensation Adjustment – IR compensation is provided to substantially improve load regulation. If the load presented to the motor does not vary substantially, the IR adjustment may be set at a minimum level (approximately 1/4 of full setting). The control is factory adjusted to approximately 3% regulation. If superior performance is desired (less than 1% speed change of base speed from 0 to full load), then the IR comp. should be adjusted as follows:

Note: Excessive IR comp. will cause control to become unstable, which causes motor cogging.

1.Set IR comp. trimpot at approximately 25% of CW rotation. Run motor unloaded at approximately 1/3 speed and record RPM.

2.Run motor with maximum load and adjust IR comp. trimpot so that the motor speed under load equals the unloaded speed per step 1.

3.Remove load and recheck unloaded RPM. If unload RPM has shifted, repeat procedure for more exact regulation. The control is now compensated to provide minimal speed change under large variations of applied load.

IV. SWITCHING CIRCUITS

A.AC Line Switching – The KBIC® can be safely turned "on" and "off" rapidly using the AC Line (no waiting time is required). Auto Inhibit® circuitry contained in the KBIC® automatically resets critical components each time the AC line is interrupted. This, along with Acceleration Start and CL, will provide a smooth start each time the AC line is connected.

11

Warning: Do not disconnect and reconnect the Armature with the AC line applied or catastrophic failure will result.

B.Armature Switching – If the armature is to be disconnected and reconnected with AC power applied, the Inhibit Circuit™ must be simultaneously activated and deactivated. Connect I1 and I2 together to activate the Inhibit Circuit™. See fig. 5B for dynamic brake circuit.

C.Reversing and Dynamic Braking – KB has developed the APRM®* which provides anti-plug "instant" reversing and solid state dynamic braking. The APRM® is built in as standard in all KBCC-R suffix models and in all KBPB™ models. *Patented.

FIG. 5 APPLICATIONS

A.Master/Slave Connections. The KBIC can be used with the KBSI to drive multiple motors:

(a)From a single main potentiometer

(b)From a single main motor.

FIG. 5A – MASTER SLAVE CIRCUIT

**connect high side of potentiometer to terminal “P” (” QD)

* A 10K ratio potentiometer is used to control up to (10) "slave" motors. If a 5K ratio potentiometer is used, up to (5) "slave" motors can be controlled.

1) Multiple KBIC® controls should be powered from the same phase AC line.

2) The positive output terminal to each speed control must be installed with a 1A-600PIV isolation diode.

FIG. 5B – DYNAMIC BRAKE CIRCUIT (Using Inhibit™)

Notes (Dynamic Brake Circuit)

* Choose RB resistance and wattage according to braking requirements.

** Inhibit™ circuit extinguishes output of control during brake. When the armature is reenergized, the Inhibit™ releases which allows for a smooth start.

C.Overload Protection with KBAP-240D (P/N 9106) (Optional)

The KBAP-240D is a multipurpose DC Current Sensing Relay and Overload Protector. It is specifically designed for use with DC motors and speed controls from 1/8 - 3 HP. KBAP-240D operates by sensing current in the armature circuit. When the preset level is reached, the output relay (RY1) trips. An adjustable time delay (0.2 - 15 secs.) is incorporated, which eliminates nuisance tripping. Manual or automatic reset is provided at the user's option along with a LED, which indicates when the preset current level has been reached. When an overload occurs, the KBAP240D can be used to shut the system down, sound an alarm, or initiate corrective action before damage occurs.

Internal Sensing. Wire the KBAP in accordance with the following wiring diagram.
