Cutler Hammer SVX9000 – An Overview Of Eaton’s General Purpose Drive

Cutler Hammer SVX9000 adjustable frequency drives are the compact, modular solution to variable speed applications. They enable a broad range of new application capabilities. A complete selection of option cards allows you to configure the drive to meet any requirement. With its wide voltage range, high overload ability, and user-friendly alphanumerical keypad, Cutler Hammer SVX9000 drives are the smart decision for every user.

Just three screws link the control module to the power module. Whats more, control units are interchangeable within frame sizes while software, control panels, I/O and communication cards are common throughout the line. Separating the power and control units provides installation advantages and reduced spare parts requirements. For convenience, the Cutler Hammer SVX9000 is field convertible from Type 1 to Type 12 (frames 46). Its reduced size equates to less panel space used and easy retrofits.

Even when the drive is unpowered, the Cutler Hammer SVX9000 can be programmed and tested. The control logic module can be powered from an external +24 Vdc source so youre ready to train, test and go live whenever needed. Whether you choose local or remote operations via the keypad, simple copy/paste functions streamline the process.

The Cutler Hammer SVX9000 may be configured with several different communication protocols, making it easy to communicate with all commonly used control systems. The control units powerful microprocessor can be used for local control tasks, thereby freeing resources of the control system for other control tasks. 9000XEngine, the versatile block-programming tool, eliminates the need for a PLC and significantly simplifies the control system.

The Cutler Hammer SVX9000 adjustable frequency drive offers sensor-less vector control technology coupled with an adaptive motor model and sophisticated ASIC circuit features. This technology allows for steady speed error, fast torque rise time, high immunity to resonance vibrations and high starting torque and current. The SVX9000 is suitable for multiple motor drive systems and high-speed applications.

Cutler Hammer SVX9000 is available in230V to 125 hp,480V to 250 hp,600V to 200 hp,Type 1/IP21Enclosedor Type 12/IP54 Enclosed. TheCutler Hammer SVX9000 offers the following communication options:

Cutler Hammer SVX9000 Software Tools

9000XLoad is an easy-to-use tool for uploading system, application and option card software intended for use by engineering, commissioning and service personnel. 9000XLoad is also suitable for loading custom applications to the SVX9000 drive.

9000XDrive is a software tool that allows uploading and downloading drive parameters. Parameters can be changed, saved, and uploaded to any number of SVX9000 drives. The tool has the ability to print parameters or save them to a file for future use and reference. Parameters can be compared to default values to determine drive setup. Operator functions include the ability to set references, start and stop the drive, and to monitor signals and actual values. These values can be displayed via a graphic display.

9000XEngine allows the user to create IEC 1131-3 compliant custom applications with 9000XEngine. This graphical design tool customizes the control logic and parameters in the SVX9000. Functional Block Diagram (FBD), Ladder Diagram (LD) and Structured Text (ST) are all part of the function set. 9000XEngine enables the creation of parameters, fault messages and other application related features.

The Cutler Hammer SVX9000 drive is sometimes mistaken for the Cutler Hammer SPX9000; the SPX9000 is a Cutler Hammer high performance drive and is available through 2000 HP.For Cutler Hammer SVX9000 user manuals and other product downloads, visit the Eaton Website.
