The new AC30V series from Parker Hannifin combines ease-of-use with high levels of control for a wide range of applications where reliable, accurate motor speed control are key requirements. Offered in three frame sizes that cover a power range of 1 HP through 25 HP (0.75 kW to 18.5 kW) with additional models to 150 HP planned, the series features conformally coated PC boards to protect against corrosion when used in harsh environments and a choice of integrated filtering options for compatibility with commercial and industrial installations. They 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. The 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.
