Frequency inverters are the perfect fit

Frequency inverters are the perfect fit
As a specialist in drive and automation technology, 'Rightsizing' is how Lenze describes the requirements that have been met by its new 8400 inverter drives. Part of the L-force range, the 8400 series the enables users to find perfect-fit solutions from models that are arranged by level of functionality and drive behaviour.

From a functional standpoint, the BaseLine entry-level drive is a scaled down version of the next StateLine version. This in turn is represented in full in the HighLine. The versions therefore only differ in terms of functionality and are based on drive behaviour at the shaft. This approach protects the operator from the selection problems outlined above as there is no limiting 'small print' to prevent you from making the right choice.

The same housing and fixings for the same power rating and the same terminal assignment make light work of installation. Most especially the same software functions throughout the series, speeds commissioning and allows future modifications without having to rework all the control technology or control cabinet layout. To ensure that the drives can be easily handled during installation, the industrial design has no visual bells and whistles to prevent tidy wiring. Instead, clean edges and straight lines support efficient control cabinet layout.

The 8400 series is initially being launched as BaseLine, StateLine and HighLine. The BaseLine is available with power ratings of between 0.25 and 2.2kW single-phase and 0.37 to 3kW three-phase. The StateLine and HighLine versions cover the single-phase power ratings of 0.25 to 2.2kW and five further models are available for three phase between 0.37 and 11kW.
