GA800 Drive - Features and Highlights

  •  High resolution multi-language display with Setup Wizards and Data-Logging.

  •  Bluetooth and DriveWizardMobile for convenient and easy interaction.

  •  Programming without main power through embedded USB port.

  •  DriveWizard Desktop for comprehensive configuration and monitoring.

  •  DriveWorks EZ (embedded function blocks) provides extra flexibility, otherwise accomplished in a separate controller.

  •  Closed or open loop vector control for outstanding regulation and torque production.

  •  Fast acting motor control functions provide near tripless operation.

  •  Popular network connections provide robust control and monitoring with system controllers.

  •  Embedded Auxiliary Control Power Input (24V) maximizes production time and efficiency by maintaining network  communication while main power is removed.

  •  Embedded Safe Torque Off minimizes downtime for applications requiring occasional intervention (SIL CL3, PLe, Category 3).

  •  Integrated DC Reactor (40HP and larger) improves power quality and compatibility.

  •  Integrated 12 Pulse version provides a cost effective solution for low harmonics.

  •  Integrated Brake Transistor (up to 125HP ND) for cost effective heavy braking.

  •  Standard conformal coating helps resist contamination.

  •  Made with RoHS compliant materials for environmental compliance.

  •  Flange version provides IP55/UL Type12 backside integrity when mounting with heatsink external.
