AC drives combine simplicity with harmonic mitigation

December 9, 2003
New low-voltage AC drives combine simplicity, convenience, Fieldbus connectivity, harmonic mitigation and programmability. The drives, available in one to 550 horsepower, provide high-power density to end users, OEMs, systems integrators, and/or panel builders who need a full-featured drive in a small, flexible package. Available in NEMA 1 or NEMA 12 enclosures with supply voltages from 280 volts to 480 volts, the drives feature two internal slots for options which include encoder feedback, 115/230-volt digital interface card, I/O expansion or Fieldbus adapters. According to the manufacturer, the drives also feature the industry''s lowest input current THD (Total Harmonic Distortion). ACS550 Driveā„¢.
