Both models use a robust NEMA 4X enclosure that can handle dusty/dirty environments and high pressure washdown applications.
Dirty Duty drives are rated IP66 and can withstand up to 1,000 psi. Both drives are simple to program and easy to operate. A user-friendly keypad with up and down keys along with left and right arrows allow for effortless navigation and parameter changes. Multiple English-text status screen are easy to read on the full graphics backlit display. Optional external keypad may be remote mounted up to 200 feet from the drive. The drives offer USB standard interface for Mint WorkBench tools and have multiple communication and expansion option boards.
