The Nidec / Control Techniques Unidrive M700 Series – M700-05400270A10 – 11kW HD 27Amp 380v – 480v 3 Phase AC Drive

The Nidec / Control Techniques Unidrive M700-05400270A10 is an AC Inverter for 11kW (20HP) 400V 3ph motors up to 27A. This M700 series drive is suitable for both induction & permanent magnet motors and comes with integrated STO input. Commissioning available.

Maximize throughput with superior motor control

  • High bandwidth motor control algorithm for closed-loop induction, permanent magnet and servo motors – 3000 Hz current loop bandwidth and 250 Hz speed loop bandwidth
  • Flexible speed and position feedback interface supports a wide range of feedback technologies from robust resolvers to high resolution encoders
    • Up to three encoder channels simultaneously e.g. 1 feedback encoder, 1 reference encoder and 1 simulated output
    • MCi modules can eliminate the need for external PLCs and motion controllers
    • Simulated encoder output can provide position reference for CAMs, digital lock and electronic gearbox applications

Optimize system performance with onboard Advanced Motor Controller

  • M700 incorporates an Advanced Motion Controller capable of controlling 1.5 axes. The motion functions are carried out ‘on the drive’ so that system performance is maximized

Design flexible centralized and decentralized control systems

  • MCi modules can be added to execute larger programs for advanced  system control capability
  • Onboard PLC for logic programs
  • Machine Control Studio is an industry standard IEC61131-3 programming environment for efficient system design and configuration
  • Integrated dual port Ethernet switch provides simple connectivity using standard connections
  • Onboard real-time Ethernet (IEEE 1588 V2) uses RTMoE (Real Time Motion over Ethernet) to provide fast communication and accurate axis synchronization
  • Three System Integration ports are available to fit additional fieldbus, position feedback and I/O options

Conform to safety standards, maximize uptime and reduce costs by integrating directly with safety systems

  • M700 has an integrated Safe Torque Off (STO) input and can accommodate an SI-Safety module for safe motion functions
