Altivar Process ATV900 - VSD Drives
Drives for heavy industrial applications from 0.75kW to 800kW
Variable speed drives and drive systems dedicated to maximum productivity with excellent motor control and connectivity capabilities (0.75kW to 800kW)
FeaturesAltivar Process is a Services Oriented Drive designed to reduce OPEX in Process & Utilities installations, thanks to embedded digital services.
ATV900 is a range of ready-to-order drives and custom engineered drives focused on maximum productivity, with exceptional motor control and connectivity capabilities.
Altivar Process is the first Services Oriented Drive with:
• Embedded power measurement and energy dashboard
• Embedded process monitoring and control
• Low harmonics (THDi < 48% at 80% load or THDi < 5% with Low Harmonic/Regenerative offer)
• Stop and Go function to reduce energy consumption in standby mode
• Asset monitoring and protection
• Drift monitoring
• Easy maintenance via a Dynamic QR-Code
• Seamless integration with embedded Ethernet:
o From device to process control with the Smart Process Object
o From data to insights with the embedded Web Server
Custom Engineered Drives:
• Proven technical cooling and harmonics solutions
• Modular and compact design
• Easy grid integration
• Embedded control (PLC, RTU, HMI)
• A full set of control options
• Fully load tested in a controlled laboratory environment
• Drives engineered for the application
BenefitsServices Oriented Drives
This new concept in drives meets the major needs of energy intensive process and utilities in terms of equipment efficiency and Total Cost of Ownership by supporting energy management, asset management and also the overall performance of the process.
• Sustainable cost savings thanks to predictive condition-based maintenance
• Up to 20% downtime reduction without additional investment
The Altivar Process ATV900 is focused on maximising motor performance and enabling connectivity
• Excellent motor performance on any type of motor in open or closed loop control
• Dual port Ethernet maximises services such as connection to the control room and full process transparency
• Network service ensures operational continuity even in the instance of a connection breakdown
• Web server and data logging help reduce downtime through fast troubleshooting and preventive maintenance
Complete Control of your Applications
• Maximise your application performance by using the Drive-to-Drive communication service: total control of any kind of coupling in master/slave applications.
• Total management and flexibility of speed and torque on rigid and elastic belt couplings
• Asset protection functions to increase production and reduce downtime
Real Time Intelligence
Web server and services via Ethernet
• Embedded web server interface based on the Ethernet network gives you process monitoring with your daily working tools
• Local and remote access to energy use and customised dashboards means your energy is visible anywhere, any time, on PC, tablet or smartphone.
Custom Engineered Drives
Schneider Electric’s expertise in design and application services delivers solution-specific designs dedicated to your process requirements for seamless plant integration.
• Minimise design and delivery risks
• Reduces the commissioning and integration time
• Designed and built to exact specifications
Enhanced Drives Specifications
Compact and modular, suitable even in harsh environments, Altivar Process is ideal for upgrades, retrofits, or new installations.
• Withstands severe electrical and environmental conditions
The ATV980 Regenerative Drive Systems help improve efficiency by feeding back regenerative power to the grid.
• Ready-to-connect drives with motor and generator modes
• A 4-quadrant drive with shock-free changes from motor to generator operation
• 3-level active front end (AFE) technology improves efficiency while maintaining harmonic-free power quality (THDi <5%)
Braking resistors allow Altivar Process drives to operate while braking to a standstill, by dissipating the braking energy. They enable maximum transient braking torque.
• Located outside of the enclosure, without inhibiting natural cooling
• Braking units provide IP20 and IP23 protection and thermal protection is given by an integrated temperature probe
ApplicationsAltivar Process ATV900 drives have been specifically designed for industrial processes, such as:
