ACE SeriesCooper Crouse-Hinds’ ACE Series explosion-proof variable frequency drive (VFD) can be safely and reliably installed in Class I, Division 1 or 2 hazardous areas. Currently available up to 60 hp, this drive features a NEMA 7 enclosure with active cooling technology that allows the VFD to be housed inside the classified enclosure without the risk of overheating and failing while operating in ambient temperatures up to 50 C. In addition to installation savings, this drive provides soft start capabilities and built-in, real-time diagnostics. It can lower energy consumption by allowing a motor’s power level to be adjusted exactly to performance needs with an explosion-proof keypad and window.
