Parker SSD 512 Series (2Q)

Parker 512 Series (2Q)

Isolated control circuitry, a host of user facilities and extremely linear control loop make the 512C ideal for single motor or multi-drive low power applications. Designed for use on single phase supplies, the 512C is suitable for controlling permanent magnet or field wound DC motors in speed or torque control.

Typical applications include

  • Centrifugal fans and pumps
  • Extruders and mixers
  • Small paper converting machines


  • Fully isolated control circuits
  • 110 V ... 415 V supply selection by jumpers
  • CE marked and EMC compliant
  • Multiple input speed and current setpoints
  • Zero speed and drive healthy outputs
  • Extremely linear control loops


  • CE Marked to EN50178 (Safety, Low Voltage Directive)
  • CE Marked to EN61800-3 (EMC Directive) with external filter
  • NRTL Listed to US Standard UL508C
  • NRTL listed to Canadian standard C22.2#14
