Ivy Steel

Ivy Steel in Houston, had a number of old Emerson Spectrum drives on wire drawing machines. They also had an older drive on one which was giving them a great deal of difficulty keeping repaired. The Spectrum was out of production, and never went as high in horsepower as this machine needed. We found a power bridge, and created a custom drive, complete with a Control Techniques FXM5 field regulator, using a Melltrum circuit board, which is the same as the Spectrum mother board. This drive has been running since 1996.
