Parker’s feature rich AC10 compact drive extended to 180 kW to enable even more applications

Parker has extended the AC10 range of compact variable speed drives up to a power rating of 180 kW.  With power ratings now ranging from 0.2 to 180 kW, the AC10 series is the perfect choice for engineers who are seeking a compact, feature rich drive that is suitable for light, medium and heavy duty drive applications.  

In addition to the extended power rating, other newly introduced functionality includes PMAC (Permanent Magnet AC) motor control for drives up to 22 kW, fire mode and ‘fly catching’ – a feature that recognises and matches the motor’s frequency on start-up to avoid the generation of EMF.

The design enhancements follow closely on the heels of a recent upgrade that saw the introduction of an IP66/NEMA 4x rated enclosure for protection against the ingress of dust and water. This particular development makes the drive even more attractive to machine builders faced with designing systems for challenging operating environments.

The AC10 provides a no-fuss approach to general purpose industrial motor control applications across a wide range of industries, giving users the inherent energy-saving benefits associated with variable speed drives, as well as the improved reliability and extended service life advantages that come with smoother starting and stopping of regularly cycling loads.

AC10 features, typically only found on higher specification drives, include sensor-less vector mode, three-phase 400 V supplies in all frame sizes, and a full 150% overload for 1 minute.

With the feature rich performance, the extended power range and its simplicity in use, it is hard to find a more competitive drive in this class.
