a stock control
Custom controls are available for AC, PMSM, DC,
DC brushless, PSC, Shaded Pole and Universal motors
from sub-fractional through 5 horsepower.
Motors Last Longer
Proprietary Current Limit Software provides overload
protection, prevents motor burnout and eliminates
nuisance tripping. Motor filter eliminates harmful
voltage spikes that cause motor winding breakdown
and bearing failure (IP 20 models only). UL approved
as electronic overload protector for motors.
Energy Saving
Uses only the power the application requires.
Replacing constant speed with variable speed will
significantly reduce energy costs.
Packages available:
Newly designed
• Chassis / IP 20 • NEMA 1 / IP 50 • NEMA 4X / IP 65
Depending on production order size, samples

Case Study: Custom AC Drive for a Boat Lift
Custom KBDA-27D
Boat Lift
A boat lift is designed to store a boat out of the water when not in use and place it into the water when ready to be used. Typical
applications include private boats stored adjacent to lakes, rivers, or canals. The system requires a Drive that can endure a
harsh outdoor environment and contain inputs for limit switches. The drive must also be capable of operating when wired to a
GFCI circuit, must be simple to operate, and it must also contain Pass Code Protection.
KB Solution
KB engineers selected model KBDA-27D with a custom Input/Output module. The drive is housed in a NEMA 4X enclosure
which makes it suitable for outdoor use. It is rated for 1HP-3Ømotors and can operate from either a 115 or 230VAC line.
Custom software was developed by KB which incorporated the specifications required for the application:
1. Dedicated input for high/low limit switches
2. Tamper proof pass code system to prevent unauthorized use
3. GFCI circuit operation
4. Dedicated input for remote control operation
A custom front label was developed which included the customer’s logo and special functions. In addition, the drive is factory
programmed for Ready to Use, “Out-of-the-Box”. Read more Case Studies on our website.
