Variable-frequency ac drives for motor control
|VariFlex Series of ac drives from Carlo Gavazzi is suitable for industrial motor control applications.|
Buffalo Grove, IL —A new range of compact ac drives from Carlo Gavazzi handles most general-purpose three-phase industrial motor control applications from 1/3 to 5 hp. VariFlex Series lists the 10 most commonly used drive parameters on the front cover, sufficient for 90% of the applications. A remote keypad is also available.
Drives come in three frame sizes (A, B, and C) covering voltages from 180 to 528 V ac. The drives use universally accepted single- and three-phase supply voltages. Limited overall dimensions minimize required space within the electrical enclosure; widths measure less than 3 in. SmartStick custom memory stick simplifies multiple drive programming, allowing fast cloning of programming from one drive to others. Modbus capabilities are standard; various field options and PLC functionality are also available.
