Parker AC Inverter 690+ up to 1000kw

The AC10 compact drive is one of the smallest variable speed drives available and offers a low cost, compact solution for simple AC induction motor control in applications up to 180kW

The AC10 variable speed compact drive is a simple, reliable and economical solution to every-day motor control applications requiring speed or torque control within the power range of 0.2kW to 180kW. Having compact dimensions and features normally only associated with higher specification AC drives, including, sensorless vector mode, output frequency up to 590 Hz, 3 phase 400VAC supplies in all 5 frame sizes and a full 150 % overload at 0.5 Hz for 1 minute, the AC10 provides an optimised solution for OEM machine builders who are looking for a compact, cost-effective, energy saving variable speed ac drive without compromising on performance.


Product OverviewTech SpecificationsProduct Support

The AC690+ can be user configured for 3 different modes of operation :

Open-loop (volts/frequency) control
  • This mode is ideal for basic motor speed control, or multiple motors driven in parallel. The quick set-up menu and plain language display ensures the quickest and easiest, trouble free start up.
Sensorless vector control
  • High starting torque and tight speed regulation is provided by a sophisticated MRAS (Model Reference Adaptive System) motor control strategy. MRAS provides accurate speed simulation (without the need for any speed measuring transducer) by continually modelling the motor.
Closed-loop vector control
  • Full closed-loop flux vector performance can be achieved with the AC690+ by simply adding an encoder feedback ‘technology box’. This provides 100% continuous full load standstill torque plus a highly dynamic speed loop (up to 45 Hz bandwidth) ; more than sufficient for the most demanding of applications.
  • Pre-programmed application macros
  • Open standard fieldbus communications
  • Programming identical to DC590+ DC drives
  • Mechanical protection options to suit all environments : IP 20 – IP40/NEMA 1 – IP54 – Through panel mounting
  • Class B EMC filters
  • Energy Saving (fast return on investment in pump and fan applications)
  • Supplied in an enclosure for power ratings above 355kW
