The best vector control of any general purpose drive in it's class, the RoHS compliant, small footprint, multi-purpose MEGA VFD is ideal for most industrial drive applications. Also it excels in very accurate position control. Fuji Electric has further evolved their original torque vector control by equipping the inverter with motor constant tuning to compensate for a voltage error of the main circuit devices and the magnetic flux observer of a new system.
Since no software is required, to start up the MEGA VFD (a feature that has been well received by production managers and floor operators) it is not only intuitive and easy to use, but it is also faster than any other inverter on the market today. When you want to use your PC, the inverter keypad can be directly connected to the computer through a commercial USB cable (Mini B) without using a converter and the computer can also be connected over Ethernet IP/TCP for convenient access on the shop floor or from a remote office across the world.
FUJI's PC loader software supports the following functions:
- A variety of data about the inverter body can be saved in the keypad memory, allowing you to check the information in any place at any time
- Periodical collection of life information can be carried out efficiently.
- The real-time tracing function permits the operator to check the equipment
- Maintenance information
- Multi-setup configurations can be saved/uploaded with a mouse click.
Other Major Benefits Include:
- Robust design due to MEGA using FUJI's own IGBT technology
- The MEGA VFD with industry-leading MTBF
- Overload 200% - 3 sec; 150% - 1 min
- The MEGA VFD is backed by Fuji's three year warranty
And in case you did not know, in the past, Fuji Drives sold under TB Woods (Now Vacon Drives), General Electric and Saftronic, but is now selling direct with over 11 million VFDs produced globally.
Fuji Electric Corp. of America has announced that they have begun manufacturing their FRENIC-HVAC Combination Variable Frequency Drives (VFD) in the company's new factory in Roanoke, VA in order to reduce turnaround time and customize panels to suit customers' individual applications. The complete series includes 208V, 460V and 575V panels and provides ease of installation, start- up, and field troubleshooting.
The FRENIC-HVAC Combination VFDs include "As-Built" CAD Drawings and are ideal for applications ranging from Food Processing to Pump Control. Compatible with 22 or 30mm HMI devices, these UL-certified panels offer convenient cable entry options and come standard with Fuji Electric's industry-leading 3 year warranty.
Fuji Electric opened their new 37,000 square foot engineering and assembly facility in Roanoke, Virginia in 2015, with a focus on assembly of their Variable Speed Drive Custom Panels, Uninterruptible Power Systems (UPS), and Auxiliary Power Systems (APS). The announcement is the latest move by the company to grow and expand their business activities in the U.S., as it will allow them to respond more quickly to local market conditions and reduce lead time on product shipments.
Fuji Electric Corp. of America announced today that they have expanded their portfolio of low-voltage inverters in the North American market with the next generation FRENIC-Mini Drive (C2), which is now available for shipment to customers. As a replacement model for the existing FRENIC-Mini, these new compact inverters offer customers additional features and improved functionality while maintaining the same size and footprint.
Fuji Electric's FRENIC-Mini Series provides excellent performance for both single-phase and three-phase applications, and is available in multiple configurations to support 1/8 HP up to 20 HP AC drives / variable frequency drives (VFD) / v/ Hz vector drives. With an expanded range of rated voltages, the new FRENIC-Mini strikes an optimal balance between price and performance, positioning it for rapid growth in the N.A. market.
Fuji Electric Corp. of America announced today that they have expanded their portfolio of low-voltage inverters with a new HVAC Drive that will be available for shipment next month.
The latest innovation from the global electronics manufacturer features a slim, space-saving design, real-time clock, embedded BACnet, and all other functions required to independently operate fans and pumps in air-conditioning equipment.
The product will be formally introduced to the company's U.S. customers at the upcoming AHR Expo in January at New York's Jacob Javits Center, Booth #372.
FRENIC-HVAC features an input interface that includes temperature sensors and controllers and a 4 PID control function that monitors the external environments particular to air-conditioning, complete with Fuji Electric's industry-leading 3-year warranty. Fuji Electric Corp. of America is a wholly owned subsidiary of Fuji Electric Co., Ltd., and has been responsible for sales and distribution of the company's products since 1970.
Ready to convert FRENIC P11 or G11 series to new MEGA series? Fuji AC Drive engineering team created simple summary application note to make it easy for you. You can compare difference between your existing drive and new MEGA series, including dimension, parameters, keypad, option, and etc.
Fuji FRENIC G11 series general purpose vector drives are used for constant torque applications while Fuji FRENIC P11 series vector drives are used for variable torque (fan & pump) applications.
DC Reactor - FRENIC5000-G11 vs. FRENIC-MEGA
External DC Reactors are provided as standard and must be installed for the following ratings:
- G11/P11 units 100HP and above, both 230V and 460V.
- MEGA units 100HP and above, both 230V and 460V. (G11/P11 vs. MEGA requirements are the same for DC Reactors)
Fuji AC Drive team expanded package drive solution by adding NEMA 12 ventilated as standard offering for EcoPAK.
- Standard offering up to 200HP
- Flexible Configuration options
- Multiple communication protocol options
- Standard 3 year warranty
The EcoPAK is a packaged AC drive solution for variable torque fan and pump applications in commercial buildings, educational facilities, hospitals, and industrial facilities. By applying fans and pumps instead of mechanical flow control devices to the EcoPAK - lower energy bills, reduce ambient noise, and improve process control.
FRENIC-EcoPAK LH utilizes a variable frequency ac drive and a Schaffner ECOsine harmonic filter in one complete package solution for an IEEE519 1992 compliant for variable torque fan and pump motor applications. FRENIC-EcoPAK LH is available for 25 to 500 Hp 460V ac 3Ph motor applications. With the increasing emphasis on reducing energy consumption backed by energy rebates and maintaining power quality to avoid penalty fees from utility companies, variable frequency drives are being required to comply with IEEE519 1992 more often. FRENIC-EcoPAK LH allows contractors to purchase and install a variable frequency drive solution that will save energy while maintaining harmonic current and voltage distortion at or below that required by IEEE519 1992.
The HRDR Series combines an electromechanical relay and microcontroller timing circuitry. It offers 12 to 230 V operation in five ranges and factory fixed, onboard or externally adjustable time delays with a repeat accuracy of +/-0.5%. The high switching capacity of the output contacts allow for direct control of heavy loads like compressors, pumps, motors, heaters, and lighting. Bypass/reset switch option allows operator to
The UL 508A Open Panels, Type 1 and Type 3R enclosures include 100kA SCCR, safety fusing and easy internal access. The HGP filter is uniquely suited for power quality needs in oil and gas fields. Excessive background voltage distortion, often found in remote oil and gas applications, reduces the effectiveness of standard passive filters. In these applications, the HGP filter performs well with distortion as high as 5%.
