1 Technical Data
1.1 Functional description
The control unit EBC 3000 was developed to operate the RNA mini-band conveyor FP 15. The applied pulse width
modulation generates high efficiency and good start-up characteristics through a near 1 form factor. All operating controls
including the plug-in device for the motor connection are arranged on the front panel.
A switched-mode power supply in accordance with VDE 0551 generates the operating voltage of max. 24 volts for the belt
drive, so the motor voltage is a contact-safe protective extra-low voltage.
An internal current scanning (I x R compensation) equalizes speed fluctuations when the load on the conveyor belt
changes.
* Minimum and maximum output voltage, Umin und Umax, as well as maximum motor current, Imax, are continuously
adjustable on the board.
* The conveyor belt can be powerlessly started and stopped over additional wiring.
* In addition, one can regulate the target value over an external 0-10V or 0-20mA signal.
* Over a voltage-free contact, one can reverse the sense of rotation of the connected motor.
* The control unit is designed for a mains voltage from 110 volts AC to 230VAC. The control unit checks the mains voltage
and adjusts itself automatically.

Safety Instructions
The safety instructions must always be read and understood. Observance of these instructions ensures that valuable
material is maintained and damage to health avoided.
One must make sure that every person working with this control unit is acquainted with the safety instructions and also
follows them.
The unit described here is a controller for the operation of RNA belt drives. The limiting values in Technical Data are to be
observed.

Note!
This hand indicates that there are tips on how to use the control unit.
Attention!
This warning triangle indicates safety instructions. Non-observance of this warning can result in serious
injuries or death!
Work on electrical equipment of the machine/installation may only be carried out by a qualified electrician or
by an instructed person under the directions and supervision of a qualified electrician according to the
electrotechnical regulations!
Please observe all notes on safety and danger on the machine/installation!
The electrical equipment of a machine/installation is to be inspected and checked regularly. Defects like
loose connections or damaged cables must be eliminated immediately!
Before putting the machine into operation, one must make sure that the protective conductor (PE) is
installed at the connecting point and that it is intact. Only approved testing equipment may be used to check
the protective conductor.

Starting Instructions
Before connecting to the mains and switching on the control unit, the following points must be checked:
 Is the control unit properly closed with all its screws?
 Are the existing plug-in fixing devices locked into place / screwed tight?
 Are all cables and bushings intact?
 Is the INTENDED USE guaranteed?
 Does the indicated supply voltage on the control unit conform with the local power supply network?
The control unit may only be put into operation if all above questions can clearly be answered with Yes.
3.1
Basic factory setting
The control units are set at the works as follows:
 Minimum output voltage:
4.9 volts;
 Maximum output voltage:
25.5 volts;
 Maximum load current:
1.5 amp.
In special cases or after modifications, a readjustment may become necessary, for which the following must be observed:
The maximum output voltage and the maximum load current for the conveyor belt FP 15 may not be adjusted higher nor
may the minimum output voltage be adjusted lower than indicated above.
It is also important to note that the potentiometers for the output voltage are not reactionless towards each other. This
means that a change in the maximum voltage also slightly changes the minimum voltage – and vice versa. Therefore, it is
possible that both potentiometers may have to be adjusted several times.
3.2
External adjustment with 0-10V or 0-20mA
Before connecting, the right-hand side panel of the unit has to be opened.

Before opening the control unit
pull the mains plug!
Then wait 10 min. until the power pack is discharged.
Connection is done on the XK1 terminal strip.

3.2.1
Reversing mode
Before connecting, the right-hand side panel of the unit has to be opened.
Before opening the control unit
pull the mains plug!
Then wait 10 min. until the power pack is discharged.
To activate the reversing mode, connect a voltage-free contact onto terminals XK1.9 and XK1.8. When switching the
sense of rotation, the motor stops a moment and then starts in the opposite moving direction at the set speed. If the sense
of rotation is reversed without switching or if the contact is open, the motor will run in the set sense of rotation.
3.3
Release of the function through external components
The standard adjustment of the control unit makes sure that the oscillating belt drive starts when the mains switch is
switched on. If the control unit is to operate without disconnection from the mains in the Start-Stop mode, the control unit
is to be opened by observing the above-mentioned safety notes. The blind plug at the side of the case replaces a screw
fitting with strain relief size M16. This is where the cable for the release is lead through. There are two possible ways of
performing a release:
Release through a contact
The way this simple and economical solution works is that a contact releases the control unit by closing and the belt drive
runs. The connection is made on terminals 7 and 9; the jumper put in at the works is to be removed. At the same time,
please remember the following:
 There is voltage in the connection! Cable type and colour as well as insulation regulations must be observed; the
contact must, of course, be voltage-free.
 The cable may not be installed in the immediate vicinity of high-energy switching equipment or strong interference
fields.
Release through a voltage signal
The signal is connected to terminals 6 - and 7 +; the jumper, i.e. terminals 7 and 8, have to be removed. The drive starts
when there is a signal between 10 and 30 volts DC in correct polarity. The input is protected against wrong polarity. The
use of an optocoupler in the control unit makes the input voltage-free and allows one to install unshielded cables of almost
any length. However, high-energy interferences must be avoided here too.
