Commander ID300 is our new integrated high performance drive solution to control IMfinity® induction motors from 0.25 to 7.5 kW.
The system, with a decentralized configuration offers greater flexibility in machine & plant design.
As no cabinet is required, Commander ID300 is a cost effective and space saving solution. Having no shielded or long cables reduce interference emission and lower power losses.
You benefit from all the functions of a variable speed drive in a simply and compact way.

Robust and reliable system

The system offers guaranteed performance and a protection against the three main causes of failure on the field:


  • Electronic components encapsulated in resin
  • IP55 (65 on request)
  • Aluminium drive housing
  • Protected and robust IP68 external fan


Wide range of supply voltage to compensate for the variations and disturbances of the different power supply networks allowing to export the machines in complete quietness


The motor and drive associations have been simulated and tested at nominal rating over the speed and torque range. For variable conditions, an additional fan is easily mountable

Commander ID300 provides machine performance optimization:
• Onboard PLC with real-time task to execute a substantial range of sequencing and logic IEC61131-3 programs. No need of additional PLCs
• Onboard pump program to regulate the pressure (constant pressure / variable flow) and the starts of back-up pumps
• Extra Input/output module fitting easily into the drive
• Precise frequency follow-up from an encoder instrumented bearings or inductive sensors (useful for counters or simple positioning)

The fieldbus communication substantially enhance the way of controlling your machine:
• Facilitate the design of your control architecture
• Intelligent mean and most cost effective option of linking, controlling and monitoring your system
• Increased productivity through precise measurements
• Technological simplicity and familiarity for your application
• Interoperability through open standard fieldbus : Profinet, Ethernet, Ethercat, etc.
• Simplified and more efficient maintenance (remote maintenance of equipment, etc.)

Commander ID300 integrates safety features to protect users and machines.
• Commander ID302, a variant of ID300, offers onboard safety functions for compliance with the highest safety standards SIL3 (Safety Integrity Level 3) and PLe (Performance Level e)
• Thermal memory protection to protect the motor against overloads even in case of low power supply (UL approved EN61800-5)
• Full control of the brake sequencing and brake power supply with the brake control option
