Advanced Motor Control

Optidrive P2

High performance variable frequency drive for accurate motor control even for the most demanding of applications.



  • Smooth motor operation throughout starting and stopping phases
  • Motor holding brake control
  • Avoidance of load droop and sag
  • Regeneration and braking capability during load lowering

Optidrive P2 provides:

  • Dedicated Hoist Mode Operation with motor holding brake control algorithm
  • Up to 200% torque from zero speed in vector operation without encoder feedback
  • Multiple Preset Speed or variable speed operation
  • Built in dynamic braking transistor, requires only an external resistor



  • Precise regulation of speed to ensure a consistent end product
  • High starting torque demand in many applications
  • Maximum efficiency under all conditions
  • Safe operation to prevent accidents and injuries

Optidrive P2 provides:

  • PM Motor control mode to allows open loop operation with Permanent Magnet motors for maximum efficiency
  • Maximum starting torque with standard AC motors
  • Better than 0.5% speed holding accuracy in Open Loop Vector Operation
  • Dedicated Safe Torque Off input complies with EN62061 SIL Level 2 for safe operation



  • Precise control of motor torque over a broad speed range
  • Accurate control of material tension under all conditions
  • Open or closed loop control capability, based on tension feedback or winding diameter
  • Web break protection in case of material breakage

Optidrive P2 provides:

  • PID Closed Loop Tension Control with feedback from a load cell or dancer arm
  • Open Loop Vector control provides optimum control of the output torque level
  • Encoder feedback option allows for a very wide speed range, even down to zero speed
  • Safe Torque Off input immediately disables the drive in Emergency conditions
