UXBRIDGE, MA – Lenze-AC Tech announces the release of additional I/O Modules for SMVector NEMA 1 and NEMA 4X Inverters. Available in two configurations, ESVZAL0, and ESVZAL1, the modules supplement the standard I/O functions by providing one programmable form C relay output (ESVZAL0) or one programmable form C relay output and 2 programmable digital inputs (ESVZAL1).
According to Lenze-AC Tech sources, the I/O modules do not add to the overall size of the SMVector inverter as they fit right into the SMVector inverter terminal cover, allowing for easy field installation. “These additional I/O modules are great for demanding applications requiring a relay and/or more digital inputs.” says Steve Dextraze, Inverter Product Manager at Lenze-AC Tech., and he continues, “The two extra digital inputs are just that – supplementary – and allow the drive to be configured for several application-specific tasks such as multiple preset speeds, electronic braking and motor jogging.”
Dextraze explains that the SMVector inverter drive provides 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 SMVector is designed to be truly a global product, with an input voltage ranging from 120VAC 1-phase to 600 VAC, 3-phase,” states Dextrase, adding “and, of course, the SMVector features an Electronic Programming Module or EPM, a removable chip that is the drive’s memory and allows a customer to program multiple drives in just seconds. “
