Inverter Adds Potentiometer Option

March 5, 2010
A new potentiometer option for SMVector NEMA 4X Inverter models is built into the terminal cover for direct front-panel access. 

Said to be robust and easy to maneuver, the potentiometer knob takes the place of the up/down buttons on the drive keypad, giving the operator manual speed control over a 0-10V analog output. “The potentiometer option is great for use in hands-on applications where speed must be ramped up/down, such as conveyer applications or food/beverage process applications,” says Steve Dextraze, inverter product manager. “In single-use installations, the potentiometer provides just the right amount of control without the user having to use the keypad.” The SMVector inverter drive is designed to provide all the features required by demanding applications, including four modes of operation—V/Hz, Enhanced V/Hz, Vector Speed, and Torque—plus high starting torque, auto-tuning, advanced low-speed control and dynamic speed regulation.
