Altivar 32 Drive from Schneider Electric

Schneider Electric's new variablespeed drive, the Altivar 32 has an ultra-slim, book-style designand the ability to directly attach a self-protected disconnect. The Altivar 32allows 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 ofa simple control system and perform functions usually managed by a PLC, whichallows users to use Boolean and arithmetical operations, timers, counters,comparators and short automated sequences to customize the drive to specificmachine application and save on installation components. All of these functionscan be programmed using Schneider Electric's SoMove software, available for free.

Designedto operate without the need for encoder feedback, the Altivar 32 drive delivers speed and torquecontrol for asynchronous or synchronous ac motors. It also featuresconformal coating to protect circuit boards from dust, moisture and otherairborne contaminants, which allows it to be used in harsh environments.

TheAltivar 32 is embedded with Bluetooth technologywhich enables monitoring, viewing and performing machine diagnostics whilekeeping cabinet doors safely closed. It also includes standard RJ45 connectorsfor Modbus and CANOpen networks, and onboard HMI and navigation wheel for easyadjustments.
