July 24, 2018 - Unitronics, a developer and manufacturer of integrated PLC + HMI controllers, has launched its own line of Variable Frequency Drives, or VFDs, in early July. With this launch they intend to be better able to meet customer demand for motor and motion control solutions.
Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs)—also called inverters—work across a range of applications, including packaging, conveyance and material handling, machining, pump and fan applications, and more.
Unitronics’ VFDs integrate with their existing lines of PLC + HMI All-in-One controllers: UniStream, Vision, and Samba.
The addition of a VFD product line is designed to simplify workflow by enabling customers to obtain VFDs, PLCs, and HMIs from a single supplier, program them all in a single software, and receive support from the same team throughout a project.
Unitronics VFDs offer options for both single and three phase VFDs from 0.4 kW and up to 110 kW. The VFDs are also UL approved, TÜV SÜD Safety and CE Certified.
Users can also operate their VFD directly from the controller's integrated HMI panel, allowing them to take advantage of the full color touchscreen. Another feature of an All-in-One Unitronics solution is Remote Access; users can monitor the VFD via the software, web server, or even a VNC connection.
This addition from Unitronics allows OEMs to centralize their control needs. Unitronics continues to uphold its commitment to integrating industrial automation.
