MagnePulse DMC Series 2

Features & Benefits

MagnePulse DMC Series 2 Specifications


  • The latest in DC-to-DC control, MagnePulse DMC Series 2 is ideal for operation of industrial lifting magnets in heavy-duty applications.
  • Fully compatible with IMPULSE®•Link 5 software and DataLogger Series 4 (DLS4), MagnePulse DMC Series 2 provides critical performance information, such as alarm, fault, and run details, and can assist with predictive maintenance and minimize downtime.
  • Designed with safety in mind, the MagnePulse DMC Series 2 monitors itself while in use and can be programmed to maintain safe thresholds of the magnet it is controlling, including twenty-five variables such as magnet current, voltage, resistance, temperature, and DC-bus voltage.
  • MagnePulse also features built-in software that automatically cuts power to the drive during a fault event, preventing damage to the magnet and the drive itself.
  • Digital control of the magnet’s demagnetizing current allows the magnet to clean the load faster and more consistently, helping to increase facility throughput.
  • Efficient energy use reduces magnet heating up to 50%, minimizing the need for magnet changeouts. Over-temperature protection utilizes the magnet’s resistance to determine its temperature, preventing magnet damage and increasing life expectancy.
  • Control options include single-input, dual-input, stepped-input, analog, or serial current references, as well as a programmable input to maximize magnet and crane performance.
