Motors for Triple E Tracks

Overview

Triple E have developed a new range of track mounted motors, the TDrive and the SDrive. The TDrive is primarily intended for UniTrack and UniBeam and the SDrive is designed for Erail. These motors can be used with straight and curved systems. TDrive and SDrive are plug and play motors with incorporated control electronics in the motor housing assembly. All power and control elements simply plug into the motors with no onsite wiring required.

For clients who are incorporating motorised tracks into a centralised automation system we supply the TracDrive motor with limit switches only and no control system. The housing incorporates an isolator and a junction box for connections. The TracDrive motor is intended for UniTrack and UniBeam systems and the SDrive motor is intended for Erail tracks but both these motors can be attached to all tracks with adapter brackets if required.

TDrive and TracDrive motors can be wall mounted if preferred and the mounting accessories can be found in the listings below.

Only the TDrive and SDrive motors are offered in our quote tool.

Specification

Installation is very simple; there is one Neutrik type power connector, a motor reverse switch and XLR connections for the following:

• 1 x 6 pin XLR for variable speed pendant (standard pendant)

• 1 x 4 pin XLR for additional pendant (either wired or wireless)

• 2 x 3 pin XLR for track mounted limits

The motor reverse switch corrects the curtain direction in relation to the control buttons.The standard control pendant has open, close and stop functions and includes a standard XLR connector for adding an optional second pendant for use either on stage or in a control room. The remote pendant incorporates speed control as standard. There is also the option of attaching our wireless remote controller to the XLR socket.

The full range of pendant options is in the listing below.

The 0.4 kW TDrive motor requires a 230V, 13Amp, 50Hz single phase supply. When specified for the American market the input voltage is 110v 60Hz.

The 0.12 kW SDrive motor requires a 230V, 13Amp, 50Hz single phase supply. When specified for the American market the input voltage is 110v 60Hz.

<p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align:justify">The lightweight S-DRIVE plug and play alternative to the TracDrive and E-Drive systems is aimed for use in smaller venues and applications. It offers the same convenience in regards to track mounting and once bolted onto the end of the track and reeved with the operating cord will drive straight and curved E-Rail curtain systems in lengths of up to 12m. The maximum weight it can drive is 50kg. It is comes equipped with a motor reverse switch allowing you to change motor drive direction and uses pre-stretched polyester cord making it extremely silent. The S-Drive unit is also conveniently fitted with power and limit connecters so that no specialist skills and personnel are required for installation. The S-Drive is a 50Hz, three phase, 0.12kW motor and its speed can be adjusted from a crawl to a maximum speed of 0.7 m/s. The Unit requires a mains plug or Cee form connector to be fitted to the mains cable.</p>SDRIVESDRIVE MOTOR FOR ERAIL
Pair of brackets for wall mounting our TDRIVE and TRACDRIVE motors. It is recommended that the brackets are fitted to vertical Unistrut sections so that the complete motor unit can be moved up and down to assist with rope tensioning.TD1002FTD1002F TDRIVE and TRACDRIVE wall mounting
The TD1014 mounting plate is used with our TDRIVE and TRACDRIVE motor units when curved track cording is required. The motor units can be rotated by 180 degrees so that the traction pulleys line up with the operating cord traveling from the TRA21 and UBM21 curved track head pulleys.TD1014TD1014 MOTOR MOUNT, CURVED Unibeam and Unitrack

<p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align:justify">The 0.4kW, 50 Hz TRACDRIVE motor system has been designed to be a bolt-on extra and provides a simple solution for the location of the track motor drive unit. The TRACDRIVE mounts directly beneath a track system or it can be wall mounted with additional brackets. It is capable of driving most straight or curved system layouts in lengths of up to 25m and will operate curtains (including the rearfold system) weighing up to 300kg. The motor unit uses TRA27 pre-stretched polyester cord making the system extremely silent and comes supplied with track mounted limit switches without control. The motor can be wired in either Star 415 volts ac or Delta 240 volts ac and the housing incorporates a junction box which will accept all relevant motor connections. The method of termination to the junction box is hard wired via cable glands.</p>TRADB1TRADB1 TRACDRIVE for UniBeam
