Schneider Electric introduces Altivar Machine ATV340 drive

April 17, 2018 – Schneider Electric has expanded its Altivar family of variable speed drives to include the Altivar Machine ATV340. Designed to address the challenges of the smart machine era, the Altivar Machine ATV340 drive combines application control and automation capabilities.

The Altivar Machine ATV340 variable speed drive is suited to a variety of industrial sectors as well as applications such as packaging, material handling and working, and hoisting.

The ATV340 is built for applications requiring rapid dynamic control. It provides the flexibility to handle practically all motor types in open or closed loop. Built-in multiprotocol Ethernet, an embedded encoder, integrated application functions, and compatibility with multiple motor types bring design flexibility. ONE button auto-tuning for motor identification allows project replication, while a library of tested, validated and documented architectures boosts the speed of design.

The ATV340 range has Achilles level 2 cyber-security certification and is compliant with EN ISO 1384901 and EN 62061. It is suitable for environments with high levels of dust and vibration and operating temperatures up to 60 degrees Celsius, while remote monitoring enables predictive maintenance and fast device replacement (FDR) services ensure prompt machine recovery.
