April 30, 2014 –Mitsubishi Electric Automation announces tA800 Series all-in-one variable frequency drive (VFD). The A800 Series inverter combines traditional induction and permanent magnet motors into a single solution, providing high performance response and energy-efficient motor control. The A800 meets the growing need among original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), end users and systems integrators for a multiple-capability VFD. It can be used in both induction motors and next-generation interior permanent motors and is suitable for both low performance applications such as pumps and fans, as well as high performance industrial applications. A800 VFDs are ideally suited as replacements for hydraulic drive systems and gear motors in the process and material handling industries, and replacements for inefficient motor drive systems in the food and beverage industry. It is also expected to achieve high adoption in the automotive, oil and gas, forestry products and wastewater industries. The A800 is appropriate for any motor control application that demands increased motor efficiency and maximum energy savings. The A800 comes in traditional chassis style, large system/component style and fully enclosed, severe environment style configurations. It is available in 200, 400, 575 and 690 voltage classes.
“For OEMs and systems integrators, the benefit is that the A800 can be used across a number of different applications and motor types, reducing designs, engineering, implementation, and long-term support,” said Timothy Lomax, senior product manager, Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. “Systems integrators will also appreciate its adaptable connectivity and flexible communication options.” Lomax explained that because of its flexibility, the A800 can be used throughout an entire facility, reducing training, inventory and support. “Rather than requiring a unique VFD for each application, the A800 frequency controller can support multiple applications, ultimately reducing costs for the end user.”
