The first of a new generation of variable speed drives from Parker, the AC30V series gives effective and affordable control of either AC induction or permanent magnet AC motors. With integrated energy monitoring functionality, the high efficiency drives are able to support the matching of motor speed to varying application demands. The AC30V will help reduce energy consumption, save money, and extend the mechanical life of motors, pumps and fans and ancillary equipment such as ducting or pipework.
The AC30V series can be mounted as either an IP20 backplate or through-panel drive. A fully enclosed IP54-rated version that offers certified dust and water protection is to be introduced soon. Operating temperature range for the new drives is 0°C to +50°C.
Modular design enables the quick-and-easy addition of a range of extensions to suit specific applications. These include popular communications options such as Profinet, Profibus and EtherCAT, plus a comprehensive range of I/O modules. This modularity also reduces inventory requirements and associated costs for distributors and end-users. An intuitive multi-language graphical keypad that can be mounted on the drive or remotely provides access to all drive functions to facilitate fast and easy configuration without expert user knowledge. The AC30V series is designed and built to international standards to allow worldwide use. Visit http://www.parker.com/
