BONFIGLIOLI Transmission has released a series of VVVF drives.
The Vectron Active series offers control of industrial electric motors up to 18.5kW. This complements electronic automation drive (EAD) equipment in styles and configurations up to 800kW, including integrated motors and inverters.
They feature three-phase 360V-480V operation (ACT 400) and single/three-phase 200V-240V operation (ACT200) at 50Hz-60Hz (±10%). They also offer a selectable vector control function, sensorless control, sensorless field-oriented control, and field-oriented control with encoder. They have switching frequencies of 2kHz, 4kHz, 8kHz, 12kHz and 16kHz. Their overload capacities range from 150% to 200% depending on the reference power selected. They are housed in an IP20 (EN 61800-3) enclosure with an EMC filter, integrated up to 7.5kW (EN 61800-3).
Hardware features include integrated dynamic braking module, dc link connection, standard encoder interface, and motor temperature monitoring. Plug-in power terminals are standard up to 3kW and all models feature plug-in and programmable control terminals. The Vectron series incorporates one 240V relay output (changeover contact) six digital inputs, one multifunction input, one digital output, and one multifunction output. Expansion of analogue and digital input and output is optional. Communication modules for system bus communication are also available.
