Features & Benefits

OmniPulse DSD Specifications


  • Adaptive Ultra Lift—higher speeds with light loads.
  • Micro-Speed™—precise speed control minimizes load swing during operation.
  • Load Float™—hold a load aloft at zero speed.
  • Torque Proving at Start/Stop—monitors brake function.
  • End of Travel Limits—slow down and stop inputs.
  • Most competitive DC drives offer you a one-size-fits-all solution to your application—and are difficult to use and hard to program.
  • OmniPulse DSD was developed specifically to control DC shunt wound bridge, trolley and hoist motors—and they’re easy to install and program.
  • The patented OmniPulse DSD microprocessor digital logic controller delivers precise, repeatable AC in/DC out control— and its solid-state operation means less maintenance.
  • Magnetek has more power control application experience than any company in the crane and hoist industry—trust the experts.
  • Our experienced application engineers will implement cost-effective control solutions that suit your application, to meet and exceed your expectations.
  • Traverse Motion—programmable, analog or multi-step speed reference.
  • Hoist Motion—programmable, analog or multi-step speed reference.
  • Maximum motor torque from startup to full speed.
  • Smooth load starting.
  • Programmable smooth acceleration from minimum to maximum speed.
  • Programmable smooth deceleration to creep-speed and stop.
