Parker AC30 Series Variable Speed Drive
For Open and Closed-Loop Motor Control
Applications – 0.75 – 450 kW
A drive designed withyou in mind
The AC30 variable speed drive has been designed to provide users with exceptional levels of motor control, from simple open-loop pumps and fans through to closed-loop process line applications.
The AC30 combines advanced performance with exceptional ease of use, making even the most complex applications simple to achieve.
So whether for standalone use or for integration into a complex automation system, the AC30 offers an easy to use solution for both simple and advanced motor control applications.
The AC30V is the base drive for standalone applications. Much more than a basic pump and fan drive its program can be modified with our easy to use “Parker Drive Quicktool” (PDQ) to match your exact requirements. The completed application program can then be downloaded multiple times using a simple SD card. With full access from any network via its own IP address the drive can be fully integrated into any automation system via the single, top-mounted ethernet port.
Supporting latest developments in the “Internet of things” and employing principles discussed in Industry 4.0 the AC30P is fully equipped with Profinet, Ethernet IP and Modbus TCP/ IP via dual Ethernet ports. Using the full range of our software tools this allows more advanced applications including multiple drive configurations. Plug in via one port and access multiple drives supported by 1588 time synchronised peer to peer communication.
The AC30D module gives you the great features of the AC30P as well as additional built in terminals to allow dual encoder inputs and an encoder output. This gives “system Board” functionality to the AC30 allowing “electronic line shaft” capability so with this control module we can offer phase locking between drives and register control. This also frees up the I/O plug in slot to allow for even more I/O to be added if needed.
AC30 Series Capability & Connectivity
The AC30 is a modular product allowing users to select power stack, control module, IO and communications modules and accessories to perfectly match the requirements of the application, making it a highly customisable yet cost effective solution. The three interchangeable control modules provide the basis for the series: the standard AC30V control module, the AC30P module with a host of advanced connectivity options and the AC30D module which adds dual encoder system capability.
The AC30 Series Flexibility
The AC30 series variable speed drive has been designed from the ground up as a modular product, offering outstanding flexibility through a range of interchangable and upgradable user options, including control modules, communications and I/O.
