Variable Frequency Drive

Mitsubishi Electric Automation's F700 Variable Frequency Drive controls motors from 1 to 800 horsepower. The F700 series incorporates an Optimum Excitation Control system that maximizes motor efficiency under all load conditions, and can even track and display energy and dollar savings in real time. Robust protective features help ensure that the drive will keep running despite fluctuations or interruptions in power.

"This new drive is suitable for virtually any general purpose application that involves a motor, whether it's on the shop floor, air-handling unit or machine room," said Chris Cusick, marketing manager for Mitsubishi Electric Automation. "The unprecedented range of the F700 makes it one of the most versatile VFDs on the market. Available for either 200V or 400V supplies, from 1-800HP, each VFD can control up to 4 pump or fan motors, resulting in significantly shorter payback times and reductions in maintenance costs in energy saving."

The F700 is a totally new design from Mitsubishi Electric, and features a new power module and hardware. Its NEMA 1 structure allows for safe, secure installations, whether in a panel or as a stand-alone module. Ease-of-programming is also a key benefit made possible by a jog dial that provides fast access to any of its 400 parameters. The F700 also incorporates an Optimum Excitation Control system that maximizes motor efficiency under all load conditions, and can even track and display energy and dollar savings in real time. Robust protective features help ensure that the drive will keep running despite fluctuations or interruptions in power.

The F700 VFD includes these new features:

Mitsubishi Electric Automation supplies factory automation solutions such as programmable logic controllers, human-machine interfaces (HMI), programming and control software, variable frequency drives, motion products including computer numerical controllers (CNC), and servo controls.
