Engineering and plant managers in regions where the main power supply is 575 to 600 V can now harness the performance benefits of Mitsubishi Electric’s inverter technology with the introduction of the A860 Series variable frequency drive (VFD). A 600-V version of the proven A800 Series all-in-one VFD, the new A860 Series inverter combines traditional induction and permanent magnet motors into a single solution.
“This new VFD provides high performance response and energy-efficient motor control just like the A800, but it can be used in areas that have 600-V power supply specifications,” said Chris Cusick, product manager, Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. “The A860 offers durability, dependability and dynamic performance specifically for 600-V applications.”
The A860 delivers speed, torque and positioning control for standard three-phase motors. It’s particularly well suited for controlling shock loads experienced in machine tools, and in lifting and hoisting applications. Other applications include in the timber and textile industries, with particular suitability for use in saws, chippers, de-barkers and heavy conveyors.
The A860 can be used in both induction motors and interior permanent motors. Its suitability across a number of different applications and motor types reduces engineering, implementation, and long-term support and eliminates the need for application-specific VFDs.
