Motors, Drives, & Motion Control



With an initial size range of 1-60 hp, offered from stock, Baldor Electric's H2 Adjustable Speed Drives are said to be "the most reliable" on the market. Buttressing the claim is extensive testing during each design phase and verification during each step of the manufacturing process. Testing includes in-circuit and functional testing of each circuit board; stress testing, FMEA testing; and full-load dynamometer testing of the final drive.



For ease of use, H2 drives feature a large graphical display that augments the keypad to increase an operator's control functionality. The new keypad includes more keys, faster navigation with directional arrows, and enhanced soft programming keys. Multiple-line English display, selectable type sizes, and a simple programming-method round-out user features.

H2 drives offer choices for higher performance applications, namely: encoderless vector, vector, and ac-servo control. Field-installed expansion boards are available to expand the number of I/O points. Bus communication boards handle various networking protocols, such as DeviceNet, Profibus, and LonWorks. Also available are a new Ethernet-server and Baldor's Mint (motion intelligence) expansion-boards. Higher power models and custom design units will be offered soon.
