Variable speed drive Altivar 312
The Altivar 312 drive by Schneider Electric is a frequency inverter for 200 V to 600 V three-phase asynchronous motors from 0,18 kW to 15 kW.
The Altivar 312 drive is robust, compact, easy to install. Its integrated functions are particularly suitable for the requirements of applications involving simple industrial machines.
By taking account of constraints on product setup and use right from the design stage, we are able to offer reliable, cost-effective solution to manufacturers of simple machines and installers.
The Altivar 312 drive integrates perfectly in the main control system architecture. Modbus and CANopen are integrated as standard. Communication cards are available as options with CANopen Daisy Chain, DeviceNet and ProfibusDP. The Modbus TCP network and the Fipio bus are also accessible via dedicated gateways.
The Altivar 312 drive is user-friendly with the simplified user interface:
- Intuitive navigation,
- Local controls on the front panel,
- Auto-tuning for optimum performance,
- Configuration via mobile phone (Bluetooth),
- Loaders for duplicating the configuration,
- So Move setup software.
Thanks to his compact size, the enclosures can be smaller (integrated EMC depending on the model and side-by-side mounting option without derating)
The Altivar 312 has a total compatibility with the Altivar 31 in terms of both hardware and software, providing extended product replacement options.
The Altivar 312 drive incorporates functions that are suitable for the most common application, including:
- Handling and packing
- Textile machines
- Special machines
- Pumps and fans
The Altivar 312 range of variable speed drives covers motor power ratings from 0,18 kW to 15 kW with four types of power supply:
- 200 V to 240 V single-phase, 0,18 kW to 2,2 kW (ATV 312H to M2)
- 200 V to 240 V three-phase, 0,18 kW to 15 kW (ATV 312H to M3)
- 380 V to 500 V three-phase, 0,37 kW to 15 kW (ATV 312H to N4)
- 525 V to 600 V three-phase, 0,75 kW to 15 kW (ATV 312H to S6)
All the functions of the Altivar 312 drive can be accessed via the communication buses and networks:
The speed control and reference may come from different control sources:
- Logic input or analog I/O terminals
- Communication bus or network
- Remote display terminal
The advanced functions of the Altivar 312 drive can be used to manage switching of these control sources according to the requirements of the application.
The assignment of the communication periodic I/O data can be selected using the network configuration software.
The Altivar 312 drive is controlled using the CiA 402 native profile.
Communication is monitored according to criteria specific to each protocol.
Regardless of protocol type, the reaction of the drive to a communication fault can be configured as follows:
- Free wheel stop, stop on ramp, fast stop or braked stop
- Maintain the last command received
- Fallback position at a predefined speed
- Ignore the fault
