Low-voltage complete control devices of УКН type

Low-voltage complete control devices of УКН type are intended for control of lifting and transport mechanisms AC and DC drives, as well as electric motors used in water supply systems, ventilation and other processing lines in various industries.
The devices are designed to work in electrical networks with the isolated and grounded neutral.
In the УКН device there are can be used power semiconductor units, microprocessor controllers and low-voltage apparatus manufactured by international company ABB. We can also use power semiconductor units and microprocessor controllers manufactured by Solcon Industries (Israel) or by DEG itself, on demand.
Location category is 3 or 4. Environment protection degree is IP21, IP32, IP42 or IP54.
The devices are manufactured for both the inner market and export.
Designer and Manufacturer: PJSC «DEG».


The devices of УКНК type support the following:

  • start and stop motors in manual or automatic modes on the signals from the monitored parameters sensors;
  • the possibility of remote control;
  • power supply from two independent inputs;
  • both inputs line and phase voltage indication;
  • control and indication of the motor operating current;
  • control and indication of emergency state;
  • manual or automatic selection of the working motor;
  • control and indication of process parameters;
  • motors protection.

* The range of functions is to be agreed with the customer.

Mine winder control devices
Mine winder control devices are usually produced using frequency converters and asynchronous squirrel-cage motors, but can also be based on DC electric drives. These devices can be used in the circuits of both vertical and inclined hoisting plants. They may have a «General industrial performance» or «Mine normal performance» labeled PH (ГОСТ 12.2.020-76).

The devices support the following:

  • soft start of the drive motor with programmable start-up time until the set speed;
  • pressure feedback maintaining a steady rate of the transport device movement in the range D = 1:20 in circuits without motor speed feedback. In circuits with motor speed feedback range D = 1:50 and more is provided;
  • electrical braking mode of the drive motor with the power recuperation into the supply power network while transport movement on slopes and deceleration;
  • manual control through the running speed setting unit (controller), performed by a driver;
  • non-contact reversing of the drive motor;
  • emergency stoppage of the electrical drive at the frequency converter failure and when “Emergency stop” button is pressed;
  • display the current drive data, triggered protection reports and the frequency converter faults on the apparatus of mining transport control of АУРT type graphical control panel;
  • preliminary insulation control of output connections;
  • frequency converter proves the following protection types:
  1. protection from the short-circuit in the drive motor and its power supply cable;
  2. current overload protection;
  3. power supply overvoltage protection;
  4. power supply undervoltage protection;
  5. power transistors coolant overheating protection;
  6. earth fault protection at the frequency converter output;
  7. drive motor and its supply cable phase loss protection drive motor overheating protection;
  8. drive motor stall protection.

With the apparatus of mining transport control of АУРТ type devices support the following:

  • determination of the vessel location in the trunk;
  • calculation of the vessel movement speed in the trunk;
  • calculation of the vessel movement direction in the trunk;
