Sprint Electric from the UK offers a broad range of DC Motor-Control equipment. From a few amps to many hundreds, this firm manufactures a complete range of variable speed drives.

Here's an example:

ABOVE: Model PL/PLX 5KW to 265KW Three Phase Digital DC Motor Controllers from 5 KW to 265 KW. Available in 2 and 4 quadrant versions.

Here's the Description from Sprint:

The Sprint Electric digital DC drive is probably the most powerful on the market today. With an extensive range of standard software blocks, it can take control of the most demanding motion tasks. All models include large alpha-numeric back-lit display, full set of centre winding blocks and a field weakener for extended speed range. Supplied with a superb, free, windows graphical monitoring and drive configuration tool. A high quality product from a world beating company. UL, cUL and CE approved.

PL 5-265KW
Single direction 2 quadrant DC Motor controllers. Most models include a rate controllable fully regenerative stopping facility. This star feature eliminates wasteful dynamic braking resistors. Normally requiring a more costly 4-quadrant drive, and practically impossible with an AC drive, it is unique to Sprint Electric. The PL5-265Kw range is available in three ultra compact chassis sizes spanning 5-50Kw, 65-145Kw and 185-265Kw.

PLX 5-225KW
4 quadrant regenerative drive providing motoring and braking in both directions of rotation. Extremely compact footprint ensures easy integration within new machine designs.

Key Features include:

Friendly easy to use menu structure with English language parameter names. Three fully independent, user programmable drive configurations.
Extremely flexible block diagram including Unique "Configuration checker", detects shorting of user programmed block diagram output connections. Extensive, multi-function programmable I/O, with over 36 digital & analogue input/output combinations.
Free "PL Pilot" drive configuration and monitoring software. Full suite of centre winding macros included.
Large 40 character backlit alphanumeric LCD display. Built in system application blocks with descriptive connection points.
Ultra compact sizes offering significant panel space savings over other manufacturers. Unique electronic regenerative stopping facility on most 2Q models.
Programming menu is designed for rapid travel to desired parameter using ergonomically designed keys. In depth fault monitoring and comprehensive system alarms
Five feedback transducer options as standard. Serial communications to allow off site programming and remote diagnostics.
Non volatile trip alarm memory, even after power-down. In depth diagnostic facility available from on board display & "in-built meter".
Real language parameter description eliminates need for look up tables. On board fully controlled field with five operating modes.
UL, CuL and CE approved. Easy to use product manual with display graphics and block diagrams.
Built in "Oscilloscope" output for full parameter monitoring during commissioning. Full suite of built in encoder functions as standard, including spindle orientation.
Motorised pot simulator, with power off memory. Motor parameters entered via keys, - no soldering of cal resistors required.
