Schneider Electric Altivar 312

Schneider Electric’s Altivar 312 variable speed AC drive is designed to make industrial and commercial machines more energy efficient, according to the company, while simplifying its integration into a single control system architecture. Available in 1-20 HP and up to 600V, Schneider says the Altivar 312 features the highest overtorque and the only drive with a remote graphic keypad in its class. It serves as a solution for a variety of machines—including those used in material handling, packaging, food and beverage, mining and pumping applications. The Altivar 312 comes standard with integrated communication ports for Modbus and CANopen networks and optional cards for CANopen Daisy Chain, DeviceNet and Profibus DP. Autotuning, multi-loaders and 50 pre-loaded application functions to manage common facility processes simplify setup and installation. The user interface built into the drive provides navigation and speed control with the dial as well as local start/stop control.
