Unidrive M600

0.75 kW – 2.8 MW (1.0 – 4,200 hp)
200 V / 400 V / 575 V / 690 V

The M600 is the perfect choice for applications that require high performance open-loop control of induction or permanent magnet motors. SI-Encoder option modules are available for applications that require more precise closed-loop velocity and digital lock/frequency following of induction motors

♦ Features

Enhanced throughput with high-performance open-loop control of induction and permanent magnet motors

  • Advanced Rotor Flux Control (RFC) algorithm gives maximum stability and control of induction and permanent magnet motors
  • 200% motor overload suitable for heavy industrial machinery applications

Reduce system costs by directly integrating with applications

  • M600 incorporates an onboard PLC which can execute Machine Control Studio (IEC61131-3) programs for logic control, sequencing, speed following and digital lock – removing the need for additional PLCs
  • Fit up to three SI modules to add safe motion, speed feedback, additional I/O and fieldbus communications
