Varispeed G7 - Advanced Vector Control

Varispeed G7



In consideration of the different usage environments throughout the world, this inverter boasts high levels of both performance and operability, and stands ready to meet the most stringent technological demands. For the first time, 3-level control has been incorporated in 400-V class, general-purpose inverters to solve the problem of micro-surge voltages. It can be used in existing motors.


Features of the 3-level control method

The first 400V class general-purpose inverter in the world to use the 3-level control method, to approach sine wave output voltage. It provides the solution to problems like motor insulation damage to surge voltage, and electrolytic corrosion of motor bearings due to shaft voltage. Existing general-purpose motors can be used even without surge suppression filters. The noise and leakage current are greatly reduced (halved in in-house comparison).

Low surge voltage

Suppresses surge voltage to the motor, eliminating the need for surge voltage protection for the motor.

Low electrical noise

Significantly reduces conduction (power supply) noise and radiated noise caused by inverter drives, minimizing effects on peripheral devices.

Low acoustic noise

Provides low acoustic noise, difficult to achieve with conventional designs.

Extensive energy-saving control

The energy-saving control approaches the maximum efficiency. High-efficient, energy-saving operations are achieved for any application either in vector control or V/f control.

Extensive energy-saving control


Countermeasures to minimize harmonics current

All models of 18.5 kW or more come equipped with DC reactors to improve the power factor, and support 12-pulse input (Note).

Input Current Waveforms

Note :  For 12-pulse input, a transformer with a star-delta secondary is required for the input power supply.

Supporting global field networks

All models are fully compliant with RS-422/485 (MEMOBUS/Modbus protocol) standards. The networks are available by using communications option cards. Now you can connect to hosts and PLC, implement centralized management of production equipment and reduce wiring easily.
