Powerful and Versatile

Although primarily intended for Class 3, pallet truck type applications, the C3 AC motor controller is equally suitable for small ride-on machines. Two versions are available – 200Arms and 250Arms – thereby allowing the most cost-effective solution for an application. Flexible, yet simple programming means the C3 AC motor controllers are compatible with all types of AC induction motors; while a dedicated thermistor input allows motor temperature to be measured and the power to the motor to be reduced if it is becoming too warm.

Simple Motor Matching

For ease of installation and efficient performance, C3 AC motor controllers can be ‘matched’ to any AC induction motor, using an auto-commissioning sequence. This simple 3-step process is launched via the C3 PC Programmer. No specialist measuring equipment is required, just the basic motor ‘nameplate’ data. Once commissioning has been completed on the first vehicle, the C3 programming file can be saved, copied and then written to other vehicles equipped with the same motor type, greatly reducing set-up time.
