Variable Frequency Drive (VFDs) — also called inverters — optimize machine performance, save energy, and lower machine lifecycle costs across a range of applications, including packaging, conveyance and material handling, machining, pump and fan applications, and more.
Unitronics® VFDs can be used as a standalone product or integrated together with the company line of controllers.
Offering options for both single and three phase VFDs from 0.4 kW up to 110 kW, these VFDs include:
- Built-in EMI filters
- Modbus RTU fieldbus
- Broad range of operating temperatures
- Sensorless vector and torque control
- Built-in braking units
- STO (safe torque off)
- Heavy-duty overload capacity
- Wall, flange, and rail mounting options
The VFDs are also UL approved, TUV-SUD Safety and CE Certified
You can operate, monitor, or debug VFDs via the controller's integrated HMI panel, or via Unitronics’ Remote Access, Web Server, or VNC connection using Unitronics’ software.
The addition of a VFD product line simplifies workflow by enabling customers to obtain VFDs, PLCs, and HMIs from a single supplier, program them all in a single software, and receive support from the same team throughout a project.
Configuration and Operation
Pairing Unitronics VFDs with Unitronics controllers offers a faster, easier alternative to other VFDs on the market: all tasks can be programmed using the same software environment as the PLC application. Unitronics’ software enables the user to rapidly set up, configure, and commission multiple VFDs, as well as to monitor and debug the VFD— either via the software or traditional oscilloscope.
Another major benefit of an All-in-One Unitronics solution is Remote Access; users can monitor or debug the VFD via the software, web server, or even a VNC connection.
Unitronics VFDs allows OEMs to simplify and centralize their control needs, relying on fewer components from fewer vendors; they now can save time, budget, and effort with this all-in-one approach. Unitronics continues to uphold its commitment to innovating and integrating industrial automation.
