Potentiometer control increases inverter flexibility

The ability to use potentiometer control is useful in hands-on applications where speed must be ramped up/down such as material handling or food/beverage processes.

Lenze-AC Tech potentiometer option
A potentiometer option is now available for SMVector NEMA 4Xinverter models. The potentiometer option is built into the terminal cover,providing direct front panel access. The potentiometer knob takes the place ofthe up/down buttons on the drive keypad, giving the operator manual speedcontrol over a 0-10 V analog output. The ability to use potentiometer controlis useful in hands-on applications where speed must be ramped up/down such asconveyer or food/beverage process applications.


The SMVector inverter drive still provides features required

by demanding applications including four modes of operation: V/Hz, enhanced

V/Hz, vector speed and torque; plus high starting torque, auto-tuning, advanced

low-speed control and dynamic speed regulation. The potentiometer option

increases the inverter's flexibility and applicability to industrial applications.
