VFD launch expands Unitronics offerings to motion control

In keeping with their commitment to centralise and streamline industrial automation and control, Unitronics is announcing a new Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) line. Unitronics, the leading experts in the development and manufacture of integrated PLC + HMI controllers, has launched its own line of VFDs. As a result of this launch they are better equipped to meet customer demand for motion control solutions.

VFDs—also called inverters—optimize machine performance, save energy, and also lower machine lifecycle costs. These include, packaging, conveyance and material handling, machining, and more. Additionally, Unitronics’ VFDs seamlessly integrate with their existing lines of PLC + HMI All-in-One controllers. The VFDs will also be fully integrated with the UniStream, Vision, and Samba product lines.

This addition simplifies workflow by enabling customers to obtain VFDs, PLCs, and HMIs from a single supplier. This can then be programmed within a single software and receive support from the same team throughout a project. Moreover, this allows OEMs to simplify and centralise their control needs, relying on fewer components from fewer vendors. OEMs can therefore save time, budget, and effort with this all-in-one approach. Unitronics continues to uphold its commitment to innovating and integrating industrial automation.

Unitronics VFDs are a general purpose solution and offer options for both single and three phase VFDs from 0.5 horse power up to 150 horse power. Features include:

  • EMI Filters, Built-In
  • Broad range of Operating Temperatures
  • Braking units – Built-in
  • Heavy-Duty overload capacity
  • Modbus RTU fieldbus
  • Sensorless Vector and Torque control
  • STO (Safe Torque Off)
