Altivar 32 Drive from Schneider Electric

Altivar 32 Drive from Schneider Electric

Schneider Electric's new variable speed drive, the Altivar 32 has an ultra-slim, book-style design and the ability to directly attach a self-protected disconnect. The Altivar 32 allows users to mount it side-by-side and integrate it into tight spaces, minimizing wiring and machine costs.

The drive can operate as the heart of a simple control system and perform functions usually managed by a PLC, which allows users to use Boolean and arithmetical operations, timers, counters, comparators and short automated sequences to customize the drive to specific machine application and save on installation components. All of these functions can be programmed using Schneider Electric's SoMove software, available for free.

Designed to operate without the need for encoder feedback, the Altivar 32 drive delivers speed and torque control for asynchronous or synchronous ac motors. It also features conformal coating to protect circuit boards from dust, moisture and other airborne contaminants, which allows it to be used in harsh environments.

The Altivar 32 is embedded with Bluetooth technology which enables monitoring, viewing and performing machine diagnostics while keeping cabinet doors safely closed. It also includes standard RJ45 connectors for Modbus and CANOpen networks, and onboard HMI and navigation wheel for easy adjustments.
