Fall 2015 Training Dates

KB Electronics, Inc. Manufacturer of AC Drives, DC Drives & Variable Speed Controls

We are pleased to announce the Fall Training schedule at our Coral Springs factory. Training includes Penta Power and KB Genesis products. Training sessions are held in our on-site classroom. This classroom is equipped with lab benches and offers “hands on” learning of models of our speed controls, complete with metering and motors. Each class accommodates up to eight students.

The two day class includes the basics of AC & DC motor speed controls. The course covers all our models, VFD, SCR, PWM and Battery. An agenda for the class can be found on the following page. Tours of the KB Factory and Engineering Department are also included.

The $250.00 tuition charge is payable by company check, purchase order or in some cases, coop advertising dollars. The tuition covers all class materials, as well as the hotel room for Wednesday and Thursday nights. Students are invited to join Sales Department staff for dinner on Thursday night. Classes are also scheduled next to a weekend, to allow students to stay over a Saturday night, if necessary to get affordable airfares, or for some R&R.

This training is designed for outside and inside distributor sales personnel. The students will learn how to specify and sell all of our products. Extensive discussion of typical applications will be included. Course materials given to students will include distributor binders.

To reserve a spot, please contact Sales Administrator Doreen Smith (x-1132). Take advantage of this opportunity to mix the business of learning about KB controls with the pleasure of South Florida. Please call us if you have any questions.

Training Dates:

October 15 & 16, 2015    Thursday 8:30 AM to 3:00 PM Friday

November 12 & 13, 2015    Thursday 8:30 AM to 3:00 PM Friday

New Battery Powered DC/DC Motor Speed Control

KB Electronics, Inc. Manufacturer of Variable Speed AC and DC Motor Controls

KB Electronics, Inc. of Coral Springs, FL, a manufacturer of AC and DC drives from fractional through 5 horsepower, introduces two battery powered DC/DC low voltage motor speed controlmodels. The KBBW Series of Pulse Width Modulated (PWM) DC/DC motor speed controls provide excellent dynamic response to load variations. The efficient PWM waveform produces an almost pure DC current to the motor which provides low audible motor noise, and long brush life. Pulse-by-pulse current limit provides short circuit protection and prevents control damage due to shorted motors. Model KBBW-12 operates on 12 VDC and model KBBW-22 operates on 24 VDC.

“We are pleased to continually deliver quality drives to our customers" reports Vice President of Sales, Alan Bueller. “The new KBBW drives expand our DC product line to now include a low voltage speed control.”

The Plug-In Horsepower Resistor® (PHR) (supplied separately) eliminates the need for recalibrating the IR Compensation and Current Limit settings when the control is used on various horsepower motors. Quick-connect terminals are standard for all connections to the drive. Adjustable trimpots allow the drive to be tailored to specific applications. The Inhibit Circuit can be used to stop and start the drive electronically with a switch or contact.

The 5 kΩ potentiometer (supplied), a 0 – 5 Volt DC analog signal, or a PWM microprocessor output signal can be used to control motor speed.

The optional Auxiliary Heat Sink Kit (Part No. 9142) increases the drive's current rating from 14 Amps DC to 20 Amps DC.
