Dart Controls Releases Revolutionary Digital Speed Pot DC Motor Control

The new 153D-PB Series from Dart Controls combines all the latest design and most popular features in DC drives today.  The heart of the 153D-PB Series is the 153D series control, our most complete DC SCR control.  Dual supply voltage (120/240VAC), dual output voltage (90/180VDC) with the output voltage user selected.  Said another way, while 120VAC supply can only output 90VDC, the user can choose with 240VAC supply EITHER 90 or 180VDC output to the motor.


This NEMA 4X / IP67 drive also includes an integral digital potentiometer.  This feature, unique to Dart, allows for precision and repeatable speed settings in 0.1% increments.  No encoder is required.  The 153D-PB Series may be configured to power up at 0.0% speed, or the last setting.  All models offer adjustable HP setting, MIN and MAX speed, and ACCEL or DECEL rates to allow for speed profiling of the motor.  Available in single quadrant (On/Off) and two quadrant (FWD/Off/REV) models.

Lutze Silflex FBP Cables for Food & Beverage Applications


LUTZE Inc, a manufacturer of industrial control, network and power cables, is launching a new line of food safe control and motor cables for the food and beverage industry. LUTZE SILFLEX® FBP cables are designed to meet both UL and FDA requirements solving the compliance challenge many food and beverage machine builders and processing companies are facing.

Equipment and machines for the food and beverage industry are required by the FDA to be sanitary, easy to clean, and safe for food contact. However, most industrial cables contain flame retardants and other harmful additives which do not meet food contact requirements. LUTZE SILFLEX® FBP cables are an innovative patent pending solution to this problem. The unique cable design achieves compliance with UL flame test requirements while meeting FDA food contact requirements outlined in 21 CFR. 

Food and beverage applications also require frequent and thorough cleaning procedures. If a cable cannot withstand frequent washdown, it is prone to degradation and may become a safety hazard.  In order to ensure longevity in washdown environments, LUTZE SILFLEX® FBP cables have been third party evaluated by Ecolab for resistance against commonly used cleaning agents. 

LUTZE SILFLEX® FBP cable line is currently offered in three configurations: shielded and unshielded control as well as shielded motor cable. The reduced diameter design allows for easy routing and installation in conduit. It may also make it possible to reduce stainless steel conduit size.  These cables are proudly manufactured in the USA and stocked in our headquarters in Charlotte, NC.
