New motor and drive ranges from Leroy-Somer
Leroy-Somer, a business of the Nidec group, is preparing for the launch of new motor and drive ranges. First and foremost, Leroy-Somer will be demonstrating Commander ID300, a new integrated drive for the control of its IMfinity induction motors from 0.25 to 7.5 kW. This all-in-one drive solution has been designed to meet the strategic challenges of increasingly complex and demanding production environments, induced by the transition to Industry 4.0. A decentralized system, the motor and drive assembly offers strong dynamic performance and outstanding efficiency levels for process, manufacturing and intralogistics applications, through an easy to install and easy to set-up package.
For a high level of performance, Commander ID300 is provided with advanced features for optimizing machine and process performance: onboard PLC, fieldbus communication, extra input/output or preset configurations such as a pump program for pressure regulation (constant pressure/variable flow). It integrates also onboard safety functions for compliance with SIL3/PLe.
Commander ID 300 offers customized solutions thanks to a modular concept. The wide choice of options and adaptations enables configuration in line with machine architecture. The system can also integrate an FFB brake for dynamic braking and /or a gearbox from the helical 3000 range, ensuring maximum adaptability. Extremely robust, Commander ID300 is an “easy-to-use” solution, ensuring quick and smooth operation.
This new complete and homogeneous range dedicated to explosive, gas and dust atmospheres provides a safe and energy saving response for zones 1 and 2 as well as zones 21 and 22. Fixed and variable speed-compatible, the new motors are suitable for all ATEX markets where quality, performance, risk management and compliance with standards are essential. Covering power ranges from 0.75 to 200/400kW according to models, they have been developed to meet Manufacturing and Process Industry requirements, for the most demanding users and the most innovative machine manufacturers.
