Altivar 212Schneider Electric designed the new Altivar 212 variable-speed drive and the S-Flex enclosed version to provide OEMs and control panel builders with energy-efficient and economical solutions for pump and fan applications. These ac drives adjust motor speed to the required flow of air or fluids, reducing energy costs by 50%. Electronic motor controls decrease the mechanical stress on belts, piping, and ductwork with no need for valve or inlet guide vane maintenance. Embedded reduced harmonic technology reduces the wire size and the size of upstream overcurrent protection devices and operates 10% more efficiently than typical ac drives.
