Compact AC multidrive helps cut cabinet size

30 December 2021

Industrial automation group, Inovance Technology Europe, has released the MD800 – an AC multidrive designed to meet the needs of European OEMs for more flexible, compact and scalable multidrive performance.

The modular design of the MD800 enables up to eight drives to be supplied from one rack with a single rectifier, sharing energy through the common DC bus.

Functionality includes an individual STO (safe torque off) on each drive, the ability to control PM and induction motors from a single software package, a +24 VDC control backup supply, and a full range of fieldbus and I/O expansion option cards. Further, the dual rating of each drive module allows heavy duty 150% overload for demanding torque applications or normal duty 110% overload for fan and pump applications.

The unit also promises a reduced total cost of ownership. Installation costs are reduced thanks to the user-friendly pluggable, spring type connectors, and a faster build time due to reduced wiring and fewer external components. The product is also designed to operate in harsh industrial environments with 3C3 and 3S2 conformal coating, an operating temperature range of -20 to +60oC, an operating altitude of up to 4,000m, and a separate cooling channel for the heatsink.
