AC Tech VFD Drives

Lenze Americas is the manufacturer of AC Tech VFD drives. AC Tech VFD drives are high-performance products used to optimize new and existing machinery for production. Lenze Americas is one of the leading drive and automation specialists in the field of machine engineering. Rapidly changing times present manufacturers with new and varied challenges. To succeed in the future, manufacturers will need to handle more extensive tasks in even shorter time frames; Lenze Americas aims to reachthis ideal.

SMV Series:The SMV series of AC TechVFD drives offer sophisticated auto-tuning and fast dynamic torque response. The SMV is designed for motor applications where dynamic speed and torque control is demanded. The SMV series isan attractive solution for a broad range of applications including: food processing machinery, packaging machinery, material handling, conveying systems, HVAC systems, and more.The SMV series uses an Electronic Programming Module (EPM) for programming. Maintenance techs can easily use the EPM to reconfigure drive parameters or reset the drive. When a drive reset is necessary on the SMV, customers can reset to factory default or preset settings within seconds. When SMV drives must be replaced, the parameter configuration can besaved by the user by simply plugging in the pre-programmed EPM.

MC1000 Series:The MC1000 Series of AC TechVFD drives are the intelligent, versatile and cost-effective choice for industrial applications. From harsh environments to high torque loads, the MC1000 Series drives meet the toughest requirements with reliability, at a low cost. Customers can easily program the MC1000 Series and integrate extensive I/O with an array of programmable functions. The MC1000 is available in power ranges of 1/4 to 150 HP. The MC1000 offersEnhanced Torque System (ETS). ETS allows maximum starting and accelerating torque and tight speed regulation, even under fluctuating load conditions. MC1000 drives feature manual boost for high starting torque, and auto-boost for high torque acceleration at any speed. The MC1000 features power-up & auto restart modes, sleep mode with adjustable speed threshold and time.The MC1000 also offers anoptional Form C Relay and Dynamic Braking.

MC3000 Series
The MC3000 series of AC TechVFD drives are for process control demands with fast acceleration and response. The MC3000 is rated for constant torque applications but can easily be configured for variable torque applications. Most Process Control drives are designed for variable torque applications where the motor is driving a centrifugal fan or pump. As such, these drives are limited to 110% current for overload situations such as acceleration or responding to a feedback change. The MC3000 is a true Constant Torque drive rated for 180% of rated current for 30 seconds and 150% for one minute. This allows faster response to system changes and the ability to apply the MC3000 to non-centrifugal applications such as compressors, conveyors and other constant torque loads. The MC3000 is available in the same power ranges and voltages as the MC1000.

MCH Series:The MCH series of AC TechVFD drives are manufacturedfrom 1 to 250 HP. Lenze engineers designed theMCH series for the HVAC market and specific requirements of industrial installations. Lenze engineers designed the MCH to operate standard induction motors. MCH series offer simple programming and operation control for maintenance technicians.Technicians use included drive software toadjust the motor to maintain a preset pressure, flow, temperature or other variables using PID setpoint control.The MCH Series include UL and cUL approved motor protection for single motor applications. The MCH Series is used in systems seen in applications such as fans, pumps and cooling towers.

Allen Bradley Servo Motor Repair

Allen Bradley Servo Motor Repair VS. Replacement

This article has been revised and re-posted here. If the link doesn’t work, please copy and paste the following into your browser:


Allen Bradley servo motor repair is less expensive than Allen Bradley servo motor replacement. Trained technicians should perform Allen Bradley servo motor repair. Technicians undergo unique testing procedures on Allen Bradley servo motors that are dependent upon their model, features, operations, and prints. Allen Bradley servo motor repair should initially be inspected for cosmetic damage. Taking photos of the servo motor prior to further processing is suggested.

Servo Motor nameplate data and preventative maintenance info should be collected by the repair technician and safely stored for future reference. Once these initial steps are complete, the servo motor should be meter tested before test running on a control panel; Meter testing prevents further damage to parts, winding, and insulation. The servo motor should then beconnected to a test stand to check EMF (electromagnetic frequency), encoder or resolver feedback, and commutation alignment; These standard tests are to ensure functionality oncethe motor is installed forproduction. Servo motors also need to be tested with an oscilloscope to create an operation print. Once an operation printout is generated, a technicianwill check for connection issues, magnet failure, winding failure, and perform a 100% component test.

Once the technician finishes making repairs, they will then reassemble for final testing. During the final test procedure, technicians should connect the motor to an inverterwith and without a load. Running the servo motor on an inverter is to ensure complete functionality. Testing with an inverter also allows verification that the servo can operate at full voltage and withstand full load amps of motor specifications. Repair shops should work closely with all servo motor manufacturers. Working closely with servo motor manufacturers allows for access to servo motor data sheets. Repair technicians use data sheets to ensure that the servo motor performs equal to, orbetter than, the original manufacturer standards.

Most repair shops offering Allen Bradley servo motor repair do not even perform the repair in their facility. Instead, these repair shops outsource the repair to a third party such as Precision Electric. Using a third party repair shop is risky, more expensive, and has a longer lead time than going directly to the repair source.Allen Bradley servo motor repair from Precision Electric includes a 12 month in-service warranty.
