Ignition And Control Device Reotron Mdz 2000

Thyristor firing & control unit: Cabinet mounting version (IP 20)


The firing & control units MDZ 2000 have been designed for the control of current converter installations, e.g. in electroplating plants. They contain one controller each for current and voltage control. In the voltage control mode, the output voltage is kept constant at a predefined setpoint value by the internal control circuit. Therefore, changes in the load or in the main supply have no effect on the output voltage.

When operated in the current control mode, the output current is compared with the setpoint, and corrected accordingly. Hereby, the output voltage can increase to its maximum value. If the preset limits (Imax or Vmax) are exceeded, this is signalled by LEDs.

If both control modes are used together, the controller with the lower setpoint always has priority. For example, with voltage control and subordinated current control, this means that the voltage controller is in command as long as the permissible current value is not exceeded. As soon as the current limit is reached, the current controller takes over. If the unit is to be operated purely as a voltage or current controller, the respective other setpoint must be set to the 10 VDC reference value.

Intended for installation in a control cabinet, the unit is mounted in a compact aluminium housing. All electrical connections are made via plug-in screw terminals. The controls for adjusting the operating parameters are accessible on the front panel.
