Low cost Allen Bradley PowerFlex4M inverters added to the portfolio
There is a ‘new' addition to the Allen-Bradley PowerFlex family of AC drives. The PowerFlex 4M series inverter offers economical and easy-to-program variable frequency motor control with feed-through wiring for quick installation. Engineered for ease of use, the PowerFlex 4M AC drive helps users minimise mechanical machine stress and increase application flexibility. The PowerFlex 4M's are designed to have extremely small space saving enclosures for ease of use with OEMs and panel builders
With power ratings from 0.2-11kW and voltages of 120, 240, 400 and 480V, the PowerFlex 4M AC drive is the smallest and most cost-effective member of the PowerFlex family of drives. The PowerFlex 4M A Frame measures 174mm (height) x 72mm (width) x 136mm (depth); the B Frame measures 174 x 100 x 136mm; and the C Frame measures 260 x 130 x 180mm. All frame sizes feature Zero-Stacking, which saves panel space by eliminating space between drives.
The PowerFlex 4M has been designed in three frame sizes: A, B and C. Frame size A and B drives are suitable for simple DIN-rail snap-on mounting. Compared with traditional screw-in mounting, installing a DIN-rail-compatible PowerFlex 4M is significantly quicker.
For ease of information sharing and setup, integral RS485 communications enable engineers to use the drives in a multidrop network configuration, and a serial converter module connects to any controller that has the ability to initiate DF1 messaging. Featuring the popular CopyCat function, an IP66 (NEMA/UL Type 4X) remote LCD keypad and an IP20 (NEMA/UL Type 1) handheld LCD keypad provide additional programming and control flexibility. Users can easily program, monitor and control the PowerFlex 4M drives with DriveExplorer and DriveTools SP software. The drives meet UL, CE, CSA and C-Tick standards.
