Variable Frequency Drives

Sept. 13, 2011
Amtech Drives, a major manufacturer and supplier of AC drives and soft starters in the 1 - 2,000 HP range, now offers their Eazy Series Variable Frequency Drive system to the North American markets.

Designed to precisely manage the electrical current for ultra high-speed motors and spindles, the Eazy system utilizes a proprietary PWM sinusoidal waveform. This advanced PWM technology combines with 5th generation IGBT devices to create improved bearing and spindle life as well as production up-time.

The high value Eazy system is easy to install, operate, control, maintain, and safe guard while providing complete control and protection to AC induction motors in the 40 to 1875 horsepower range.

"We call it Eazy because it makes the operators life easy with simple to use features and dependable, automatic performance. For its given markets, the Eazy Series is one of our best values," commented Dan Patel, CEO for Amtech Drives.

The feature rich Eazy system includes a new 5th generation IGBT power inverter, a SVPWM control strategy, a power losses ride trough, a built-in energy meter, a slip compensation function, true overload and ground fault protection, and standard RS-485 modbus-RTU communications software, in addition to standard encoder built in.

"This is a system that earns its keep right from the beginning making it one of our highest return on investment products in our inventory," stated Dave Lawler, National Sales Manager for Amtech Drives.

Popular applications for the Eazy system consist of rayon spinning equipment, agitators, centrifuges, pulp and paper equipment, and air compressors.
