TOTAL CONTROL AND RELIABILITY

Topology

Electric motors are the driving force of industry, and to ensure their proper functioning, V5 is supplied as standard with protection measures designed to let you carry out comprehensive diagnosis of your motor and its operation. The starter is manufactured to the highest standards of quality and mechanical robustness, and is supplied with hardware and software designed for continuous operation with the even most demanding of applications.

Complete frontal access and easy installation

A cabinet-type metal casing simplifies installation and provides easy access to the control and power terminals, electronic components, bypass contactors and ventilation fans. Vertical ventilation and complete frontal access allow for compact installation inside or outside the cabinet.

Dynamic torque control

Our V5 series comes with “dynamic torque control”, a feature exclusive to Power Electronics. It optimizes startup and shutdown sequences by attenuating the peaks of intensity and mechanical stresses to which applications are subjected.

Reliability

Thirty years of evolution and experience in field of the V5 series, along with our technical service, guarantee the absolute reliability of this equipment.

Six-wire connection

The equipment is designed for six-wire connection, allowing its size to be reduced by up to 30%.

Flexible control

The equipment can be programmed via a local display keypad or a PC (PowerCOMMS program). Two analogue and five digital inputs, along with three output relays and an analogue output, provide the V5 with numerous control possibilities. Supplied with RS232/RS485 communication as standard: Compatible with various communication protocols (Modbus, Profibus-DP, DeviceNet, etc.).

Built-in or external bypass

The V5 series offers both options. The user can opt for the conventional model, which permits the external installation of a bypass contactor controlled by the starter. This bypasses the power stage of the starter between the end of the acceleration ramp and the start of the shutdown ramp. You can also choose our V5 model with integrated bypass. This provides the same functioning performance, but in a compact format and with fast, simple and convenient connection of the equipment. All protection measures and functions remain in force while the bypass is active.

Monitoring

VRS, VST, VTR, IR, IS, IT, Cos phi, power (kW), frequency (Hz) and energy kW/h. Maximum protection for the motor and its applications.

Display

The V5 series keeps us constantly informed of the status of the motor within its overall drive system. The user has access to information both locally (via the display) and remotely (standard communication).

Information available

· Voltage for each phase
· Number of startups completed
· Total and partial
· Power (kW) and intensity (A) for each phase
· Status of analogue inputs/outputs
· The motor’s cosine of phi
· Status of digital inputs/outputs
· Motor shaft torque
· Number of operating hours (both full and partial)
· Log of the last messages

Selective coating

Selective coating of the electronic circuit boards protects the most vulnerable components from dust, humidity, contamination (PD3) and corrosive substances (3C3). Power Electronics designs its equipment to operate in the most aggressive environments. This includes automatic coating of its printed circuit boards (PCBs) to military and aerospace standards (IEC61086-1:2004,-3-1).

Communications

RS485/RS232 communications with Modbus-RTU protocol are included as standard, with the option of adding gateways compatible with Ethernet TCP/IP, Profibus-DP, N2 Metasys and DeviceNet.

Profipower

From Modbus RTU (RS485) to Profibus-DP (9-pin D-SUB/F). Communication speed of 12MB; Profibus cable recommended.

Powernet

Gateway compatible with Modbus TCP, Devicenet and CANopen protocols.

Industries

Power Electronics has more than 30 years’ experience of producing starters and variable-speed drives for various industries, including the water, mining, oil and gas, metallurgy, paper and mechanical engineering sectors. Our wide range of products allows us to optimize motor functions in many different productive systems and in adverse environments, resulting in considerable energy savings. We are already world leaders in the supply of low- and medium-voltage equipment for solar thermal power plants.
