AC Motor Drive
By Design Engineering StaffAutomation Motion Control Machine Building AC Drive Parker Hannifin
Parker AC10 series features enhanced torque and speed control.
Parker Hannifin launched its AC10 series, an AC motor speed control for 0.25HP to 30HP applications. Featuring a sensorless vector mode, output frequency up to 590Hz, and 150 percent overload for 1 minute, the AC10 will run either AC induction or PM AC motors. The drive’s auto-tuning sensorless vector mode allows for more than simple V/Hz control while its 0.5% speed and 5% torque accuracy provide greater dynamic speed or torque control, the company says. The AC10 series also includes an integrated keyboard, easily accessible rails and conformally coated PCBs as standard.
