Carlo Gavazzi launches new variable frequency drives for speed control applications

Controls and Automation specialist, Carlo Gavazzi has launched the RVBS variable frequency drive for speed control applications such as pumps, fans, conveyors, compressors and HVAC systems of up to 0.75 kW.

The open board design is available as 0.55 kW (2.7 Arms) and 0.75 kW (5 Arms) versions, providing a compact solution that especially suits electrical panels where a space-optimised design is essential. Minimal set up and push-in connectors make for a more simplified, faster and reliable installation time.

The fanless design increases reliability in harsh environments and is equipped with optimized features to control the speed of the 3-phase compressors with an induction motor via its 2 digital inputs and 1 analogue input, the RVBS offers a very flexible configuration to adapt to varied application needs.

The RVBS can be configured via the configuration software, remote keypad (optional) or via the PLC providing increased operational flexibility.

As Industry 4.0 provides the opportunity for improvements to efficiency as well preventive and predictive maintenance. Utilising the built-in Modbus RTU communication port facilitates integration with an automation system and/or PLC allowing real time status monitoring and data exchange of motor variables.

As well as providing faster and simpler installation, the new RVBS benefits from compliance with IEC / EN 61800-5-1 and IEC / EN 61800-3 (Industrial environment) and carries the CE, and UK CA approval.
