UPVFD02-D230AC AC Motor Control

upVFD Series

The UPVFD series is a microprocessor based variable frequency drive. These drives look and act like DC drives, meaning quick and easy setup without any programming. -115AC models allow 115 VAC in and 115 VAC out. –D230AC models allow 230 VAC in and 230 VAC out, but are also equipped with a unique voltage doubling capability that allows you to run a 230 VAC motor when only 115 VAC single phase power is available.

While the input is single phase, the output can be single or three phase for all UPVFD series drives. The drive’s internal carrier frequency can easily be changed from 16 kHz to 1.6kHz to minimize switching losses or reduce electrical interference.

Stopping methods include coast to stop or DC injection braking. Incorporated into the design is a microprocessor which provides flexibility of the creating custom programs that can include specific user settings for OEM applications. These full featured and compact AC drives are the perfect choice to run any 3 phase, and now some single-phase motors rated at 4 amps or below.

Potentiometer Kit 202-0101 is included with a purchase of the UPVFD02-D230AC

MM Footprint: Industry standard mounting pattern developed by Minarik Drives

Microprocessor Based: Allows custom programming for OEMs

Variety of Motors: Permanent Split Capacitor (PSC), Shaded Pole, Synchronous, and 3Ø Induction

Doubler Mode: Will run 230 VAC motors with a 115 VAC line

Torque Foldback: Allows up to 200% torque for short periods to overcome intermittent peak loads, then reduces the torque to a (preset) safe level

Adjustable Base Frequency: Can be set for 50 or 60 Hz at rated output voltage, regardless of input frequency

Selectable Switching Frequency: 16kHz for audibly quieter motor operation, 1.6kHz for less electrical noise and may prevent GFI tripping.

DC Injection Braking: Can be used for quicker braking

Thermally Protects: Drive recognizes when overheated as a result from overload. After flashing a warning code, it will trip if condition persists

Diagnostic LEDs: Power, Status (Torque Limit, Undervoltage, Overvoltage, Short Circuit, Overheat Warning, Overheat Trip)

User Adjustable Calibration Trim Pots: Minimum Speed, Maximum Speed, Torque Limit, Slip Compensation, Boost, Acceleration and Deceleration/DC Brake Injection
