UXBRDIGE, MA ‚â€“ Lenze-AC Tech announces the release of the SMVector Frequency Inverter with a highly visible Internal Disconnect switch. Available on NEMA 4X (IP65) enclosed drives; the switch removes power to facilitate service and maintenance. According to Lenze-AC Tech officials, use of the Internal Disconnect Switch in decentralized ‚â€œpoint of use‚â€ operations including conveyors, fans, pumps, material handling, stackers and sorters will result in reduced downtime, with operations getting back on-line faster.
Mentioning how local electrical codes in many parts of North America require a means of power disconnection at the motor, Lenze-AC Tech VFD Product Manager Steven Dextraze states, ‚â€œThe minimal footprint of the SMVector with Internal Disconnect helps electricians, installers and OEMs meet those codes with one piece of equipment.‚â€ According to Dextrase, besides saving valuable real estate on the production line, the Internal Disconnect reduces equipment cost by eliminating the need for a separate external disconnect switch mounted in its own enclosure, and of additional wiring between the external disconnect and the SMVector drive.
