ACSM1 works well for machinery applications from basic speed and torque control to demanding position control. Control both synchronous and asynchronous motors, with and without a feedback device. A wide power range, different product variants and programming flexibility ensure an optimum solution for both single and multi-axis systems. It's an IP20 drive module for controlling AC motors. It is to be installed into a cabinet by the customer. The ACSM1-04 can has an air-cooled heatsink, or is to be installed on a "cold plate" cooling element. The ACSM1-04 is available in several frame sizes depending on output power. All frame sizes use the same control unit (type JCU).

  • 0.75 to 355 kW/1 to 450 hp 
  • Three-phase operation 230 to 500 V AC
  • 3 to 635 A rms, power range 0.75 to 355 kW
  • IP20 enclosure for cabinet installation (UL open)
  • Suitable for single drive and multidrive (common DC) configurations
  • Speed, torque and position control
  • Controls synchronous and induction motors in open and closed loop
  • Integrated safe torque-off (STO) as standard
  • Innovative memory unit for easy drive management
