DCS800 driving an electro-magnet
Hi everyone, i'm building an electro-magnet application, and my question is:
Can i use a DCS800 for driving the magnet?
The idea is to give commands via profibus, for example:
- Activate: Translates to a Start command
- Release: Stop comand
My doubt is because a magnet is not a motor, and for instance, the field exciter should be disabled, and there's no counter-emf from the armature because it's just an inductor.
Has anyone done this?
