Vacon micro drive range offers simplicity of use and high functionality

19 January 2010

Compact and competitively priced, the latest range of micro drives from Vacon avoids unnecessary complexity while retaining all of the features needed for standard industrial applications, including the control of pumps, fans and simple conveyers.

Vacon 10 drives are available with power ratings from 0.25 to 2.2kW (single-phase) and 0.37 to 5.5kW (three-phase) and range in size from just 66 x 157 x 98mm to 100 x 262 x 109mm depending on rating. The drives are suitable for wall or DIN rail mounting.

All drives in the range offer PI control as standard, together with basic application macros for fan, pumps, conveyors and other frequently encountered applications. All but the smallest units incorporate an integrated brake chopper and, as an option, all versions can be supplied with internally mounted EMC filters that comply with the Category C2 requirements of EN 61800-3.

To further enhance their versatility, Vacon 10 drives feature fully programmable I/O, comprising three digital inputs, one analogue input and one relay output for standard models. Versions are also available with six digital inputs, two analogue inputs, one digital output and two relay outputs. An RS485/Modbus interface is a standard feature on all models.

The new Vacon 10 general-purpose micro drives are complemented by the Vacon Live software package. Available as a free download from the Vacon website, this makes setting up fast and straightforward. The Vacon Live package also includes a commissioning wizard, as well as offering full parameter commissioning.

Vacon 10 drives feature conformally coated printed circuit boards throughout, making them suitable for use in demanding environments. They comply fully with RoHS requirements and wherever possible, they use recyclable materials in their construction.
