Group 11 Rotary Damper Drives and Actuators

Beck Control Options

 

What is a Control Option?

Group 11 Beck drives have a model number such as 11-150, 11-160, 11-200, 11-260, 11-300, 11-360, 11-400, 11-460, or 11-430. Each of these drives has the capability to be equipped with different electronics combinations, which are called control options. The control option number will replace the last zero in the model number when specifying a drive model and control option. For example, a model 11-400 drive that is setup to use the control option 9 electronics would be considered a model 11-409 drive. A basic description for each control option is provided below. For details on the electronics components, please visit the Group 11 Electronics section.

9 The standard modulating drive offering is the control option 9. Control option 9 units are equipped with the Beck DCM-2 (Digital Control Module) and CPS (Contactless Position Sensor). The option 9 drives may be controlled with a 4-20 mA or 1-5Vdc signal and have an integral 4-20 mA position feedback signal. The microprocessor based DCM provides a multitude of flexibility for setup, calibration, and diagnostics including HART communications, on-board pushbuttons for calibrating stroke, on-board diagnostic status, stall protection circuitry, and status alerts. Modulating DCM-2 4-20 mA CPS-2 4–20 mA

8 The control option 8 drive is also a modulating unit, but is equipped with an ESR (Electronic Signal Receiver) and CPS (Contactless Position Sensor). The time-proven analog ESR control board provides the same excellent control that a control option 9 drive offers, but lacks many added setup, operating, and diagnostic features afforded by the DCM. While the standard control option 8 units may be controlled by a 4-20 mA signal with an integral 4-20 mA position feedback, less common signaling options are available upon request. Modulating ESR-4 4-20 mA CPS-2 4–20 mA

Control Option 8
7 The control option 7 drive is a modulating unit that is offered without an external position feedback signal. The option 7 drive is equipped with the ESR (Electronic Signal Receiver) for control and a 1000- ohm film potentiometer to derive an internal position reading. While the standard control option 7 units may be controlled by a 4-20 mA signal, less common signaling options are availble upon request. An optional auxiliary pot for external position feedback is also available upon request. Modulating ESR-4 4-20 mA Film Pot. None

6 The control option 6 drive is a modulating unit controlled with 120 VAC direct to the motor. A CPS (Contactless Position Sensor) provides a 4-20 mA position feedback signal; less common signaling options are available upon request. Modulating None 120 V ac CPS-2 4–20 mA

5 The control option 5 drive is a modulating unit controlled with 120 VAC direct to the motor. A 1000-ohm film potentiometer is standard to derive an external position reading. An optional auxiliary pot for external position feedback is also available upon request. Modulating None 120 V ac Film Pot. Film Pot.

4 The control option 4 drive is a Multi-position unit controlled with 120 VAC direct to the motor through a series of camoperated limit switches. The drive may be factory configured for three to six distinct positions anywhere in travel including two end-of-travel positions. up to
5-position
None 120 V ac None None
control option 4

3 The control option 3 drive is an open/close unit controlled with 120 VAC direct to the motor. When the drive hits the limit switch at either of the two end-of-travel positions, power is cut to the motor. 2-position (open/close) None 120 V ac None None
