Schneider Electric's Altivar 32 variable-speed drive can operate as the heart of a simple control system
Schneider Electric's Altivar 32 variable-speed drive is engineered to reduce panel space, improve uptime and increase machine performance. With its book-style design and ability to directly attach a self-protected disconnect, the Altivar 32 is designed to allow users to mount it side-by-side and integrate it into tight spaces.
The drive can operate as the heart of a simple control system and perform functions usually managed by a PLC, which allows users to use Boolean and arithmetical operations, timers, counters, comparators and short automated sequences to customize the drive to a specific machine application.
Designed to operate without the need for encoder feedback, the Altivar 32 drive is engineered to deliver speed and torque control for asynchronous or synchronous AC motors. It also features conformal coating that is engineered to protect circuit boards from dust, moisture and other airborne contaminants.
Altivar 32 is embedded with Bluetooth technology that is designed to enable monitoring, viewing and performing machine diagnostics while keeping cabinet doors closed. It includes standard RJ45 connectors for Modbus and CANOpen networks, and onboard HMI and navigation wheel for adjustments.
