IMPULSE® G+/VG+ Series 4 Adjustable Frequency Crane Controls are the Next Generation of Crane Performance
Magnetek's new IMPULSE® G+ and VG+ Series 4 drives continue our tradition of providing the most reliable and cost-effective adjustable
frequency crane controls available. The IMPULSE® G+ Series 4 can be used as an open-loop vector or V/F crane control for traverse motions
or mechanical load brake hoists. Industry-leading safety and performance features combine with our superior application expertise to provide
unmatched performance for your material handling system.
Load Check IITM - Load Check II continuously detects hoist overload conditions throughout the frequency range, halting upward
motion and only allowing the load to be lowered. It continuously monitors the hook load, both during acceleration and constant speed, eliminating
the need for load cells in most applications. Its new auto-setup feature will define the hoist's maximum hook load in seconds. Load Check II
detects overload conditions when loads are "snagged" during low speed operation. With these control advancements, the drive will either
pause lifting only when the rated capacity is approached or instantaneously halt. These enhancements provide increased accuracy and productivity.
Safe Torque Off - provides a redundant hardware safety circuit that guarantees motor and brake power are removed when an E-STOP switch
or safety controller opens the drive input, eliminating the need for external disconnects. This functionality is provided in a safety category 3
architecture, and designed to PLd and SIL CL2 according to ISO/EN 13849-1 and IEC/EN 62061 respectively, meeting the requirements of IEC/EN 61508.
Quick-SetTM - drive setup is even easier with the new Quick-Set parameter group. The drive populates a single menu with the
most frequently used parameters based on the motion and speed reference selected. For example, when a 3-step traverse drive is configured the
three speed reference, two acceleration-deceleration, programmable input, motor FLA, and Reverse Plug SimulationTM parameters are all
added to a convenient single menu.
Option Cards - provide the drive flexibility needed with expandable AC digital input and output, DC digital and analog input and output
option cards. Simplify automation and diagnostics integration with our Ethernet IP, Modbus TCP/IP, and PROFIBUS-DP option cards. The new control
power supply option maintains diagnostic, I/O and communications when main power is disconnected from the drive.
IMPULSE® Link 4.1 - Basic and Wireless Diagnostics Systems (WDS) provide easy parameter management with your PC. WDS can communicate
with up to 31 drives remotely, allowing wireless drive diagnostics, monitoring, and programming.
Built In Reliability - Magnetek drives are designed with reliability and economy in mind! The hardware and software were designed and
extensively tested specifically for the operating conditions seen in overhead material handling applications. These durable drives feature new
power modules which can withstand four times more thermal cycles than previous generations. Preventative maintenance monitors provide the
feedback you need to schedule maintenance and minimize downtime. IMPULSE® G+ & VG+ Series 4 drives are backed by our industry-leading three-year

|IMPULSE® G+ Mini
The IMPULSE G+ Mini from Magnetek continues our history of providing the most reliable and cost-effective adjustable frequency crane
The low horsepower (HP) IMPULSE G+ Mini is our easiest to program drive to date, with user-friendly standard programming for Basic applications
and advanced programming capability for high performance environments. The IMPULSE G+ Mini is designed with an expanded HP range and an identical
dimensional footprint as the IMPULSE P3 Series 2 (up to 5HP) and a smaller footprint beyond 5HP. All this, plus assured reliability and lower
cost make the IMPULSE G+ Mini Adjustable Frequency Crane Control the product of choice for your overhead material handling needs.
Factory Default Software Settings
The IMPULSE G+ Mini is factory preset for Basic application programming. This allows the technician to easily navigate and program the drive
via a built-in keypad display in minutes for most applications.
Advanced Programming Capability
The IMPULSE G+ Mini provides the choice of programming in Basic or Advanced access levels. In the Basic access level, the parameter availability
(features) and navigation is nearly identical to the IMPULSE P3 Series 2 in Basic mode. In the Advanced access level, the parameter availability
and feature set is opened up to reveal the full capacity of the IMPULSE G+ Mini drive. In this mode, the up and down arrow keys will navigate
through the already familiar parameters of the IMPULSE G+ Series 3 Crane Control.
Load Check IITM
This built-in feature continuously detects hoist overload conditions throughout the frequency range, halting upward motion and only allowing the
load to be lowered. It continuously monitors the hook load, both during acceleration and constant speed, eliminating the need for load cells in
most applications. Its new auto-setup feature will define the hoist's maximum hook load in seconds. Load Check II detects overload conditions
when loads are "snagged" during low speed operation. With these control advancements, the drive will pause lifting when the rated
capacity is approached and will only allow the load to be lowered. These enhancements provide increased saftey and productivity.
Our most compact low HP drive to date, the IMPULSE G+ Mini's size permits the use of smaller control enclosures, reducing the overall cost of an
installation. It also expands application opportunities on smaller cranes, hoists, trolleys and monorail carriers. The IMPULSE G+ Mini is
available with standard 120VAC interface card, with 24VAC optional.
Expanded HP Range
Available in 1/2 through 20 HP in 380-480V or 1/4 through 20HP in 200-240V 3 phase ratings. This allows the user to select the most
cost-effective product for low HP applications through Class D service. Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) technology provides energy savings
compared to traditional contactor technology.
All of Magnetek's motion control products are designed to efficiently utilize available power, thereby reducing energy costs for you and your customers.
Reliability Built In
Designed with reliability and economy in mind. The hardware and software were designed and extensively tested specifically for the operating
conditions seen in overhead material handling applications. The IMPULSE G+ Mini is backed by our two-year warranty.
Optional Flat Heat Sink Design Available
This option reduces the depth of the drive by as much as 45%. Finless capacities are available in 230-460V 1/2 through 5HP. Consult factory on
the suitability of the flat heat sink design for your application.
IMPULSE G+ Mini can also be purchased as part of a complete pre-engineered complete control panel.
