Flexible Motor Control

  • Whether you prefer discrete / analog control or high speed communication, GA800 covers all your needs for control interface and provides robust connections on all major networks.Controls traditional and emerging motor technologies
  • Easy and accurate autotuning provides optimized performance for each connected motor
  • Optimized control avoids tripping even with aggressive settings
  • Impressive open loop vector control
  • Precise and high response closed loop vector control
  • 590Hz maximum frequency
  • 110% normal duty overload
  • 150% heavy duty overload
  • Integrated brake transistor up to 125 HP (ND) / 100 HP (HD)
  • Connect with standard network modules for conventional and robust star configurations
  • Connect with dual port network modules and daisy-chain your connections for ring or line configurations. A great choice for decentralized drivesyask3 3
  • Maintain control power with main power removed by supplying your 24VDC to the GA800’s auxiliary input
  • Connect up to 5 drives from a single network node by adding slave drives over the GA800’s embedded RS-485

A standard feature of the GA800 is Safe Torque Off, which prevents torque production to the motor even while main input power remains applied. This minimizes your downtime when people enter your mechanical safety zone. Normal operation is resumed faster.

Designed to control traditional and emerging motor technologies through 600 HP, the GA800 handles applications ranging from simple fans and pumps to high performance test dynamometers requiring precise regulation. In addition to its robust and powerful design, the GA800 provides highly flexible network communications, embedded functional safety, and easy-to use tools featuring mobile device connectivity.

 

 Highlights

  • High resolution multi-language display with Setup Wizards and Data-Logging.
  • Bluetooth and DriveWizardMobile for convenient and easy interaction.
  • Programming without main power through embedded USB port.
  • DriveWizard Desktop for comprehensive configuration and monitoring.
  • DriveWorks EZ (embedded function blocks) provides extra flexibility, otherwise accomplished in a separate controller.
  • Closed or open loop vector control for outstanding regulation and torque production.
  • Fast acting motor control functions provide near tripless operation.
  • Popular network connections provide robust control and monitoring with system controllers.
  • Embedded Auxiliary Control Power Input (24V) maximizes production time and efficiency by maintaining network communication while main power is removed.
  • Embedded Safe Torque Off minimizes downtime for applications requiring occasional intervention (SIL CL3, PLe, Category 3).
  • Integrated DC Reactor (40HP and larger) improves power quality and compatibility.
  • Integrated 12 Pulse version provides a cost effective solution for low harmonics.
  • Integrated Brake Transistor (up to 125HP ND) for cost effective heavy braking.
  • Standard conformal coating helps resist contamination.
  • Made with RoHS compliant materials for environmental compliance.

DanfossWith more than one million square feet of exhibit and meeting space, the LEED Platinum-certified Enercare Centre at Exhibition Place in Toronto, Ontario, is the ninth-largest convention centre in North America. Located on the shores of Lake Ontario, the convection centre experiences the extreme weather that the Great Lakes region is known for – with temperatures ranging from -31°C (-24°F) to 40°C (105°F).

That puts a big burden on Exhibition Place’s HVAC equipment to keep the pace comfortable for more than 5.5 million visitors attending meetings, conventions, and exhibitions throughout the year.

Motor Feature


50 HP 1-to-3 Microgrid Power Source Single Phase Power Solutions introduces the 50 HP 1-to-3 Microgrid Power Source featuring a patented BELLE Motor with Written-Pole technology to deliver three-phase power from single-phase utility service. The 50 HP 1-to-3 can be used to operate a 25 HP motor three-phase motor, and multiple other motors up the remaining 25 HP of capacity. Ideal for areas without three-phase service, this revolutionary approach eliminates the high fuel and maintenance costs, and the pollution of fossil-fuel-powered Gen-Sets, while delivering superior power quality to that of a conventional phase converter.  It is far more cost effective than extending 3-phase power where it is not currently available.
