AC Technology, a member of the Lenze Group, announces the release of its SMVector Drive.

With its price, its flexibility and a power range of up to 20 Hp, the SMVector drive excels in environments where inverter technology was once considered too costly, including packaging machinery, food processing machinery, material handling/conveying systems and HVAC systems. The SMVector carries all the features required by demanding applications including four modes of operation (V/Hz, Enhanced V/Hz, Vector Speed, and Torque), high starting torque, auto-tuning, advanced low-speed control, and dynamic speed regulation. Designed to be truly a global product, its input voltage ranges from 120VAC 1-phase to 600 VAC, 3-phase.

"One of the core strengths of AC Tech has been to take advanced technology and utilize common sense engineering practices to create very easy to use products," says Darrow Hanesian, Director of Product Management at AC Technology Corporation. "The model SMVector is the next generation of inverter technology that continues this proven and successful philosophy." The SMVector also includes AC Technology's Electronic Programming Module (EPM), which is the drive's memory in a removable chip. This allows a customer to program multiple drives in seconds.

A member of the Lenze Group, AC Technology (AC Tech) develops, manufactures and markets a complete range of motion control solutions, including servo drives and motors, clutches and brakes, gears and gear motors and variable frequency AC motor drives.
