GEN II

The Industrial Power Rectifier Generation 2 (IPR GEN 2) Control platform is the second generation of advanced microprocessor-based digital control that meets the needs of 6 and 12-pulse rectifier operation, with expandability options for higher pulse operations with the use of a remote master controller.

The heart of the control system is the control box that houses the microprocessor, peripheral control cards, power supplies, and fiber optic gating to the SCRs.

In a continuous effort to support customers with outdated products, Chess IPR was offering this upgrade/retrofit package for the existing IPR 486-based and analogbased control platforms.

A perfect fit for replacing existing 486 based control platforms, nearly all of the existing control boards can be reused. The IPR GEN 2 upgrade from an existing 486-based control was a very simple. Only the control box and power supply module need replaced.


With a complete Digital Upgrade package, the IPR GEN 2 replaced existing analog control platforms. This type of upgrade is much more involved, but the end results are worth the initial up front work.

The IPR GEN 2 Control platform was the second generation of advanced  microprocessor-based digital control that met the needs of 6 and 12-pulse rectifier operation, with expandability options for higher pulse operations with the use of a remote master controller. The heart of the control system is the control box that houses the microprocessor, peripheral control cards, power supplies, and fiber optic gating to the SCRs.

IPR GEN 2 offered the following key advantages over existing control platforms:

  • Eliminates Hardware Obsolescence Problems
  • Forward Compatibility
  • Easier Maintenance
  • Industry Standard Communications
  • Proven Reliability
  • Zero software learning curve
  • On-board Power Supply
  • Future Expandability
  • User-friendly interface

The IPR GEN II Controller is a very streamlined, cost-efficient alternative for upgrading your GE CPU486 based digital Controller.
