Introducing Optidrive E3

Invertek Drives will be launching the stunning third generation range of Optidrive general purpose drives on Stand 349, Hall 4 at this year’s SPS IPC Drives in Nuremburg, Germany, which starts today.

Available in four frame sizes, Optidrive E3 offers the exceptional reliability, extreme ease of installation, precise motor control and World leading energy saving performance that Optidrive is renowned for, and is compatible with global supply voltages for motor control up to 22kW (30hp).

Alt text not availableOptidrive E3 also benefits from extended motor control to cover IE2, IE3 and IE4 permanent magnet and synchronous reluctance motors, and has been developed to ensure it is easy to use around the World. 

Its robust design allows Din-rail mounting or simple keyhole mounting as required, and the power supply is connected at the top with the motor supply connected at the base. This design makes installation intuitive, and easy to use 5mm rising clamp terminals ensure control wiring is very straight forward.

With only 14 basic parameters, setting up the drive for a huge range of applications is simple, and with less than 60 parameters in total, Optidrive E3 offers a very high degree of flexibility.

David Jones, Invertek’s R&D Director, comments, “Optidrive general purpose drives have established a world-wide reputation for offering precise motor control that’s really simple to install and commission. E3 takes this ethos one step further and we’re confident that our customers around the World will be impressed with the result.” 

Providing robust and reliable performance in production environments around the world, the new range is available in IP20 and IP66 versions and can be directly mounted to machines and specified with an isolator / disconnect switch if required.

However, Optidrive E3 is equally suited to fan and pump applications - switching from industrial mode to fan or pump mode at the touch of a button.

A number of features including an internal EMC filter, internal brake chopper, Modbus RTU and Can open as standard, Dual analogue inputs, internal PI control, blue tooth connectivity and sensor-less vector control, ensure the E3 offers everything needed to achieve the most precise motor control possible for an almost endless variety of applications.
