AC Motor Drive
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.
