Schneider Electric's Altivar 320 Machine Drive is designed to allow machines to perform better with less down time and lower total machine costs. Courtesy: Schneider ElectricSchneider Electric's Altivar 320 Machine variable speed drive (VSD) has several out-of-the-box features designed for building more effective machines. Available in compact and book form factors for simplified installation and efficient space use, this solution is designed to allow machines to perform better with less down time and lower total machine costs. The Altivar 320 drive offers connectivity via Ethernet (Modbus TCP, Ethernet/IP, Profinet, EtherCAT) or serial (Modbus RTU, CANopen, Profibus DP, DeviceNet) based networks. It is designed to function in harsh environments and operate in ambient temperatures up to 60 C The Altivar 320 drive meets the needs of simple or complex machines from 0.25 Hp to 20 Hp.

The Altivar Machine range matches a variety of machine throughput requirements with open-loop motor control with torque sensitive operation, even at low speed and accuracy for start/stop applications. It also has closed-loop motor control for applications requiring velocity sensitive operation or precise positioning.
