  3. 3. MCS series variable speed motors and controllers a Potomac Electric CompanyACHiEVE HiGHER PERFoRMANCE wiTH MCSThe AC Induction Motor has been the workhorse of industrysince Tesla invented it over 100 years ago. It is the device touse when speed regulation is not required. But many modernmotor control applications need to vary speed and torque. Forvariable speed and torque, MCS utilizes permanent magnettechnology, superior to that of AC induction motors in majorways, because it provides: — Fast acceleration — Higher Torque in a much smaller package Mixing Applications — Superior speed controlNow let’s turn to another trusted worker — the DC motor.It has served well over many years and has better Speed/Torque characteristics than the AC Induction motor.But machines are getting faster and faster as applicationsfor variable speed drastically increase. DC motors can’t keepup with the requirements. Plus brush wear, carbon dust andother maintenance issues means fewer engineers are choos-ing DC motors for today’s applications.Go GREEN wiTH MCS CoNTRoLLERS CentrifugesIt has been proven by the Government’s sponsored researchthat permanent magnet electric motors such as MCS aremore efficient than AC Induction motors. You save signifi-cant money on electricity costs, especially for applicationsthat work non-stop around the clock.DESiGN wiTH FiELD-PRoVEN RELiAbiLiTyMCS advanced motor and electronics design is based on time-tested innovations. The technology was first used for build-ing elite military hardware, was then integrated into high-costservo systems, and has been refined over the last 20 years. Ourengineers were the part of this evolution and today’s MCSbenefits from the experience we gained delivering increasedperformance and reduced cost of the products.MCS products line come with a 2 year factory warranty.

MCS series variable speed motors and controllers a Potomac Electric CompanyA GRowiNG NuMbER oF APPLiCATioNSMCS is a great choice for every application that utilizes variablespeed DC, AC induction and stepper systems. The unique smallsize and performance of MCS will allow the engineers to inte-grate motor control into mechanical structure of the machine.This in turn will open possibilities for new application. Hereare some of the traditional applications for MCS:• Appliances • Hybrid Vehicles• Blowers • Indexers• Centrifuges • Material Handling Azimuth and elevation control in Communication Antennas• Compressors • Packaging Equipment• Conveyors • Pumps• Feeders • Treadmills and Physical• HVAC Therapy EquipmentCuSToMizE youR MACHiNE wiTH MCSMCS offers OEM builders a number of special mechanical andelectrical features.
