Drive brings simplicity & IP65 ingress protection

Published:  21 July, 2007

Lenze has removed the cost and complexity from vector based motor control with the launch of the new smv range of inverter drives; offering fast dynamic torque response, sophisticated auto-tuning and impressive low speed operation from a compact, low cost and simple to use package. The smv drive also offers ingress protection to IP65 allowing for outdoor use, operation in environments with atmospheric moisture present and protection from low pressure water jets. The smv range is designed for use in small motor application where dynamic speed and torque control are required, such as conveyors, food production, packaging lines and HVAC systems.

Lenze expects the smv range to expand the market for small drives by providing sensorless vector control that is extremely easy to commission and operate. An easy to use facia keypad and a choice of onboard parameter sets ensure that the basic control and set-up procedure can be completed in seconds. The smv also features a programmable EPM chip. Essentially a memory chip mounted in its own plastic enclosure. The EPM plugs directly into the drive facia, allowing OEM manufacturers to copy across an entire operating set in a matter of seconds and commission the drive without having to turn it on.
