What is a Micromaster WP-6011?

  1. Picked up one apparently new and unused at an auction.
    The entire web is conspicuously silent.

    Appears to be a really dumb intelligent controller.

    Age, value, and data link?

    Please supply a bit more information.

    Google gave me 1,340,000 hits all over the map.

    A pic would be better, an internal pic would be best.

    We have some of their products still being used.. What you
    have there is a PID type of controller, one that can follow
    a reference signal (encoder) or be the master.

    Some of them had multi displays, a standard LED for reference
    information like Speed, RPM or parameter values, etc. and the
    other display could be a alpha numerical type dotted LED display..

    Like I said, some came that way. I found an image of what
    could be yours that you have and it states that it does 6 Amps, this
    may mean it has a small internal DC drive in it along with the PID trim
    controller ect. In any case, for a better guess, maybe you should post a
    good image of the back terminals and front panel..

    BUt then again, it seems that Tek has some kind of calibrator that
    pops up on that description.

    IN any case, these controllers usually allow you to monitor events of
    what is going on with some IO in the back and and IO that lets you
    remotely control it..

    etc.

    Maybe you have something else?
     
  4. Your description is accurate.
    Still need a value and a data link.

    It must be horribly obsolete.

  5. Is it a Minarik Controller? Ther is a manual for the WP6211 ( the
    replacement) on their website.

    Cheers

    1980's sort-of PLC looks like.

    Bottom line, IMHO, if you can find someone who has a machine down
    because it died, it's worth good money. It might take years to find
    such a situation. If you need dump it now, probably worth less than
    shipping cost.

    Not really, we just had one put together to replace a bad unit in an
    existing machine. The machine had to be operating and after calling
    around, we found the company that originally made that product line and
    told us they had all the parts there to make another one (new), so for
    $1100 bucks, and after we gave them the serial number of ours, they were
    able to put together a new one and ship it to us in 2 days..

    They use a universal type assembly that allows them to make various
    products with the same size din and optional IO's.

    The people that made your product also made or maybe still do, drives
    of various types. We have a few DC low HP regen drives made by them.

  8. Would you like an apparently "as new" original in factory packaging for
    one third their price?

    Serial TDR-0433.
