The co. announces its new X200 Series of inverters, which builds on the technology of its predecessors while adding many unique enhancements. The series of inverters delivers power and flexibility in a compact and efficient contractor-style (power input at the top; motor output at the bottom) package, the co. says. The series is easy to install, use and maintain and its volts-per-hertz inverter is a global variable frequency drive solution that carries the UL, c-UL, CE and C-Tick marks. It is suited for fan, pump, conveyor and many other general-purpose applications, and the series is also RoHS compliant. A new Safe Stop feature provides a hardware-based emergency stop function compliant with EN standards, while another function decelerates and stops the motor using regenerative energy from the load when the AC supply power is lost. Also includes a greatly improved trip avoidance function.
