Although there are many brands of variable speed drives on the market, few compare in features and benefits in comparison to Invertek. If you are looking for motor control drives beyond price, with best features, reliability, functionality, and performance then the choice of Invertek drives is an easy one.
Invertek Drives is one of the world's leading manufacturers of VSD's and they have an outstanding worldwide reputation based on their quality, well priced, feature rich products.
The Invertek General Purpose Drives are designed and manufactured in the UK. The Optidrive E2 range is dedicated to low power applications, combining innovative technology, reliability, robustness and ease of use in a range of compact IP20 & IP66 enclosures. Drives are available in a range of models with 0.37 - 11kW / 0.5HP - 15HP and 110-480V Single & 3 Phase Input.
A real advantage of having a motor controlled by a VSD is the much greater level of protection of the motor from overload, supply failures and voltage fluctuations. This is list of faults or issues that the drive can detect, display and record in the trip log. (Last 4 trips)
Intuitive Keypad control
Precise digital control at the touch of a button.
14 parameter basic setup. Default settings suitable for most applications. Contractor style connection for simple wiring
The Optidrive E2 has a built in energy optimisation function. This is designed to maximise the energy savigns achievable whenever the motor and drive are not operating at maximum load.
Integral RFI Filter
Options for built-in and external filters for full EMC compliance.
Easy integration with your control & monitoring systems.
Small mechanical envelopes to help minimise your space requirements.
Warranty issues rate of less than 0.4%
Industrial Ambient Ratings
Up to 50°C operation
High Overload Capability
150% overload for 60 seconds, 175% overload for 2 seconds
Brake Chopper (sizes 2 & 3)
Dynamic & compact options with heatsink mounted resistor.
Spin Start (sizes 2 & 3)
Also known as: Flying Start works to catch a spinning motor. Automatically detects motor frequency and rotational direction (fwd or rev) on drive enable. Ramps to set speed at desired acc/dec ramp rate, reducing the risk of O-I trips on enable and mechanical wear on the system.
The world's only true Single Phase Variable Speed Drive which is fully digital, fully packaged drive for controlling low power single phase motors. Designed to be cost effective and easy to use, the Optidrive E2 Single Phase is for use with the PSC (Permanent Split Capacitor) or Shaded-Pole Single Phase induction motors. It uses a revolutionary motor control strategy to achieve reliable intelligent starting of single phase motors. The drive has only 14 standard parameters to adjust in it's basic form. The Optidrive's legendary ease of use ensures quick and easy drive commissioning. For the more advanced user the extended parameter set gives access to powerful additional functionality.
Typical Applications Optidrive E2 Single Phase output can be used to provide energy efficient, accurate speed control of single phase motors in a variety of applications, especially fans and pumps which typically do not require high starting torque.The control method used provides significant energy savings compared to alternative methods.
Available up to 1.1kW
200 - 240V models available
Single phase input/single phase output
Works with permanent split phase and shaded pole induction motors
Small mechanical envelope
Special boost phase
Rugged industrial operation - up to 50°C ambient rating
Simple mechanical & electrical installation
Fast setup, and simple operation. Factory default settings okay for most applications, only 14 basic parameters.
Unique motor control strategy optimised for Single Phase Motors
Motor current and rpm indication
Debugging using troubleshooting & P-00
150% overload for 60 seconds, 175% for 2 seconds
Integral RFI filter option
Integral brake chopper (S2 only)
Modbus RTU serial communications
Special Boost Phase
To ensure reliable starting of single phase motors in cold conditions the drive can be set to initially boost the motor voltage up to rated voltage whilst maintaining a fixed starting frequency and voltage to the desired operating point.
