Schneider Electric: Altivar 212 480V 3-Phase Variable Speed Drive

February 7, 2024

This Altivar 212 variable speed drive can feed 3-phase asynchronous motors.

Its protection index is IP21 and it has a built-in EMC filter. It works at a rated power up to 5.5kW / 7.5hp and a rated voltage from 380V to 480V AC. Its design is based on eco-energy with a reduction in energy consumption of up to 70% compared to a conventional control system.

Thanks to its cable temperature rise reduction technology, the Altivar 212 drive offers immediate, disturbance-free operation avoiding additional options such as a line choke or DC choke to deal with current harmonics. It weighs 3.35kg and its dimensions are, 142mm wide, 184mm high, 150mm deep. It is specifically designed for the most common fluid management applications in tertiary sector buildings (HVAC) like heating, ventilation, air conditioning and pumping. It conforms to international standards IEC/EN 61800-5-1 and IEC/EN 61800-3 (immunity and conducted and radiated EMC emissions). It is also CE, UL, CSA, C-Tick and NOM certified.

The Altivar 212 offers optional motor chokes which can increase the maximum cable lengths between the drive and the motor and limit disturbance at the motor terminals. It is designed to be mounted in vertical position (+/- 10 °) on a panel, thanks to 4 fixing holes.

The Altivar 212 drive can easily be adapted to all building management systems thanks to its numerous functions and communication protocols integrated as standard, Modbus, METASYS N2, APOGEE FLN P1 and BACnet. It is eco-friendly and complies with directives such as RoHS, WEEE, etc.relating to environmental protection.
