Baldor Electric Company has introduced a new line of AC variable frequency drives designed to meet a very broad range of application needs, from the simplest application, to the most complex closed loop vector control with Ethernet networking.
The new Baldor V*S Drive line includes two models of high-performance adjustable speed AC drives, three microdrive models offering adjustable speed applications and a pump/fan drive designed for energy savings with functionality.
Built on Baldor’s H2 technology platform, the Baldor VS1SP sensorless vector drive and VS1GV closed loop vector drive are high-performance variable speed AC drives designed to tackle difficult and demanding applications regardless of what voltage, power rating, or performance level the application demands.
They are simple to program and easy to operate. Removable keypads provide quick help text information in a choice of languages. The 115 VAC models are available up to 3 HP, 230 VAC models up to 60 HP and 460V and 575V are available up to 125 HP.
Baldor V*S1 microdrives are compact units with user-friendly interfaces and design elements that assure consistent motor control throughout a wide range of voltages, horsepowers, and enclosure types. Three microdrive models are available: the VS1MD microdrive/inverter, the VS1MX for harsh environments and the VS1SM single phase drive. Ranging from 1/2 to 10 HP, these three microdrives are well-suited for a wide range of applications.
The new Baldor VS1PF drive, available from 5 to 700 HP, is a drive suited for the pump and fan industry. With energy-saving features, Baldor contends that the VS1PF drive provides savings over mechanical variable speed solutions as well as higher performance drives. Its automatic energy-savings mode adjusts output automatically based on load for optimum savings.
The VS1PF drive uses a traditional inverter V/Hz control method with linear, fan/pump, or custom curves, as well as sensorless vector control for the tougher constant torque pump and fan applications. Its easy setup, quick startup, and out-of-the-box operation makes it user-friendly and ideal for applications where multiple motors are operated simultaneously from one motor control.
Opportunities for the new line of Baldor drives exist in industries such as:
- Food & Beverage
- Bakery Equipment
- Vegetable Processing
- Meat & Poultry Equipment
- Bottling Equipment
- Dairy Equipment
- Waste Water Treatment
- Mixers & Agitators
- Pumps & Fans
With an extended capability up to 10 HP (7.5) kW, the VS1MD microdrive is among the most powerful and cost competitive in its class. Its compact size, user-friendly interface, higher horsepower and superior motor torque make it ideal for a wide variety of applications.
Considered the ultimate drive for harsh environments, the Baldor VS1MX microdrive completes Baldor’s family of reliable AC microdrive products. This easy-to-use, low-power AC variable speed drive has a compact design and is available in switched or non-switched enclosures. Its IP-55/NEMA 12 rating makes it ideal for use in wet, dry and harsh-duty conditions.
The Baldor VS1SM is a V/Hz and Sensorless Vector product that combines performance an reliability. With optional built-in EMC/RFI Filter and configurable PNP/NPN Digital Inputs, this single phase 230V AC microdrive is ideal for OEM Applications that require a compact, cost-effective, feature-rich product.
|HIGH PERFORMANCE DRIVES|
|VS1SP Inverter Drive
VS1SP Washdown Inverter Drive
The VS1SP AC Drive uses a traditional inverter V/Hz control method. Its easy setup, quick startup and out-of-the-box operation makes it among the most popular variable speed motor controls. It is ideal for applications where multiple motors are operated simultaneously from one motor control including pumps, fans, and general machinery applications
|VS1GV Vector Drive
VS1GV Washdown Vector Drive
The VS1GV is a high performance vector drive that offers three modes of control (closed-loop, encoderless or traditional V/Hz method) to control motor speed and torque with precision and the responsiveness needed to accomplish the most demanding applications.
|VS1SD Servo Drive
Baldor’s VS1SD Servo Drives provide control of 3-phase AC induction servomotor in an industrial package and design. These NEMA 1 controls offer Baldor’s easy to use Smart Keypad for easy setup and flexibility. The One-touch auto tuning feature provides quick tuning of the motor to the control.
|VS1SD Washdown Servo Drive
Baldor’s VS1SD Servo Drives provide control of 3-phase AC induction servomotor in an industrial package and design. These NEMA 4X controls offer Baldor’s easy to use Smart Keypad for easy setup and flexibility. The VS1 keypad follows the same easy to use menu structure as that of its companions, the VS1SP Inverter and VS1GV Vector drives
