ACF Series from American Control Electronics Offers Simplicity of a DC Drive in a Compact, Microprocessor-Based Variable Frequency Drive

POSTED 08/04/2016

ACF SeriesSOUTH BELOIT, IL – American Control Electronics introduces the ACF Series, an open chassis microprocessor-based variable frequency drive (VFD) that offers the simplicity of a DC drive. ACF700 drives are designed for quick and easy setup without any programming, in contrast to the complex programming associated with standard VFDs. The drives are equipped with user-adjustable trim pots to set Max/Min Speeds, Slip Comp, Boost, Torque Limit, Accel and Decel/Injection Braking parameters. The 115V/230V single phase input can provide single or three phase outputs of 115V or 230V making it ideal for sub-fractional HP motors and gear motors. An onboard microprocessor allows custom programming for a variety of OEM applications.

ACF Series features include:

  • HP: 1/60 to 1
  • Voltage (VAC): 115/230
  • Maximum current (AAC): 4
  • Carrier frequency: 1.6 or 16 kHz
  • Adjustable base frequency
  • DC injection braking
  • Protects against overheating as a result of frequent overload
