New generation compact vector control drive

Fourth Quarter 2020 Electrical switching & drive systems & components

The Delta ME300 series from ElectroMechanica (EM) is a new generation compact vector control drive that has up to 60% volume reduction compared to previous Delta VFD-EL drives. This provides more installation space in the control cabinet. Applications include single- and multi-pumps, OEM conveyor and packaging machines, woodworking, textile machines, fans, mixers, cranes and hoists.

The series has various essential functions built in as standard, including user-defined parameter group, single- and multi-pump function, built-in brake chopper and high-speed pulse input for speed control. It also supports both induction and interior/surface permanent motors for added efficiency and flexibility.

In addition, the new screwless wiring design of the terminal blocks offers a simplified wiring process for fast and easy installation. User-friendly operation, ultra-compact size and a flexible, durable design provide the end user with a highly efficient and stable system.

The Delta ME300 drive delivers 150% high starting torque with a low speed control of 3 Hz. This allows for outstanding machine stability and reliability in starting under extreme conditions. Up to 200% overload capability for three seconds makes it perfect for very demanding and dynamic loads. A 100% PCB coating ensures drive operation stability and safety in critical environments. An optional NEMA 1 kit prevents dust and other particles from entering the drive and avoids risk from electric shock for added safety, making it ideal for applications under critical conditions.
