Up to 1.5HP, 2 – 3HP, 5 – 10HP
The Vulcan Programmable Variable Speed Drive minimizes energy utilization and maintains optimal performance, all while avoiding unnecessary cooling, ventilation or heating from units. It’s key feature is continually optimizing the speed of your motor, ensuring airflow and energy efficiency, all from the cloud.
The Variable Speed Drive provides rapid start-up and variable speed control for SMC’s Vulcan Motors. It supports the equivalent of ‘Closed Loop Vector’ control with sensorless and direct-position sensing for fine-grain control of torque and speed.
Vulcan motors are not compatible with other types of motor drives (VFD’s, Inverters, etc.) and must be used with the Vulcan Programmable Variable Speed Drive.
All Vulcan Variable Speed Drives are programmable via a Modbus interface and come with a USB to Modbus and fully featured Windows software for simple one-time setup, monitoring, programming and updating motor firmware from any Windows PC. In addition, they may be used in conjunction with the Vulcan IoT Controller for cloud based connectivity and web-based software for comprehensive motor analytics reporting and data logging to the cloud.
