Issue:
What are the Enclosed Altivar Process Drive Systems offerings?

Product Line:
Altivar Process Drive Systems (ATV660, ATV960, ATV680, ATV980, Altivar Outdoor)

Environment:
All serial numbers for Altivar Drive Systems 

Cause:
Schneider Electric offers the following drives as an Enclosed package:
  • Altivar Process ATV660 (Compact Drive Systems)
  • Altivar Process ATV960 (High Performance Drive Systems)
  • Altivar Process ATV680 (Low Harmonic Drive Systems)
  • Altivar Process ATV980 (Low Harmonic Regenerative Drive Systems)
  • Altivar Process Outdoor Drive (Nema 3R only)

Resolution:
Enclosed System Drives are packaged drives that come standard with the following:
  • Circuit Breaker
  • Line Chokes
  • Control Options (HOA & Speedpot)
  • Light Options
Enclosure Type Options:
  • Nema1
  • Nema 12
  • Nema 3R

Framework:
  • For up to 125hp Normal Duty, the Drive System is composed of Altivar 630/930 Drive Converter.
  • For drives 150hp Normal Duty and over, they incorporate a Modular Brick Design. 
    • Each drive has several brick components that each hold or carry certain specific parts.  This parts can be replaced if needed to by replacing that particular brick but must be done by a certified Schneider Personnel. These spare components can be ordered for local inventory. 
    • The drive still maintains the same control and power boards parts from the original Altivar 630 or 930 open style drives.
  • ​The enclosed drive packages offer both wall mounting and floor standing options. 


Altivar Process ATV660 (Compact Drive)
This is a standard 6-pulse enclosed package drive for the Altivar 600 series. 

Concept:
The concept of the Altivar Process ATV660 Compact Drive Systems offers standard enclosures ready to connect. The modular construction makes it possible to adapt the enclosure unit to the individual requests. This economic enclosure variant makes the planning easy and supports a quick installation and commissioning of the drive.

Size:
  • Ranges from 1hp - 900hp for Normal Duty
  • Ranges from 1hp to 700hp for Heavy Duty

Ordering:
Can be ordered through SE Advantage. End Customers must contact Local Distributors for assistance.


Altivar Process ATV960 (High Performance Drive Systems)
This is a standard 6-pulse enclosed package drive for the Altivar 930 series.

Concept:
The concept of the Altivar Process ATV960 High Performance Drive Systems offers standard enclosures ready to connect. The modular construction makes it possible to adapt the enclosure unit to the individual requests. This economic enclosure variant makes the planning easy and supports a quick installation and commissioning of the drive.

Size
  • Ranges from 1hp - 900hp for normal duty
  • Ranges from 1hp to 700hp for heavy duty

Ordering:
Can be ordered through SE Advantage. End Customers must contact Local Distributors for assistance.
 
Altivar Process ATV680 (Low Harmonic Drive Systems)
This Drive System is based off of a 3-Level Active Front End which provides input current shaping before the DC bus. This has all the same application functions as the ATV600 drives.

Concept:
The ATV680 Low Harmonic Drive Systems are used when drives should contain mains harmonics particularly low.
In comparison with the classic circuit structure of active mains rectifiers, the 3-level technology allows an increase of the switching frequency and the current load is reduced at the same time. This new technology reaches a total distortion factor THD(i) of around 2.3 % and thus fulfills the requirements according to IEEE 519 of THD(i) < 5 % also in case of distorted mains.

Size
  • Ranges from 1hp - 900hp for Normal Duty
  • Ranges from 1hp to 700hp for Heavy Duty
Replacement​:
Suitable replacement for our legacy 18 Pulse Drives

Ordering:
Can be ordered through SE Advantage. End Customers must contact Local Distributors for assistance.

Altivar Process ATV980 (Low Harmonic Regenerative Drive Systems)
Based off of the Altivar Process ATV680 Low harmonic Drive System, only difference is to expect same ATV900 application functions with full Regen capability.

Concept:
The ATV980 Regenerative Drive Systems increase the efficiency by feeding back the drive energy to the mains.
An absolutely new developed concept based on a 3-Level technology allows the full energy flow in both directions and reduces the total harmonic distortion THD(i) to a value less than 5 % at the same time.

Size
  • Ranges from 1hp - 900hp for Normal Duty
  • Ranges from 1hp to 700hp for Heavy Duty
Replacement​:
Suitable replacement for our 18 Pulse Drives

Ordering:
Distributors must go through our Drives Quotation Group. 
End Customers must contact Local Distributors for assistance


Altivar 630 Outdoor Drive (Nema 3R Only)
These is an outdoor enclosed package drive for the Altivar 630 series. 
Size:
  • Ranges from 1hp - 250hp
Replacement​:
Suitable replacement for our legacy Altivar 61/71 Outdoor Drives

Ordering:
Can be ordered through SE Advantage. End Customers must contact Local Distributors for assistance.
