Decentralised IP66 frequency inverter with IO-Link

03 February 2020

The latest addition to the Lenze i500 inverter range, the i550 protec, has been designed for decentralised drive tasks and comes with IP66 protection class, IO-Link connectivity and a power range of up to 75 kW.

It is said to be the first of its kind to offer this level of communication integration for decentralised applications, making it suitable for use with conveyors, fans, pumps and lifting units. With IP66 / NEMA4X ingress protection, the device can be installed in areas that experience adverse environmental conditions such as high temperatures, dust, dirt or water jet during cleaning operations.

The inclusion of the IO-Link V1.1 standard interface enables sensors and actuators distributed throughout an application to be linked to a centralised control system using the new i550 protec. If an IO-Link master is already in use in the network, additional costs can be saved by using the i550 protec, as devices will be automatically parametrised during standard set-up, or as part of an in-service device replacement. 

The new decentralised communication standard ASi-5 can also be connected to the i550 IO-Link interface, along with other common fieldbus interfaces.
