Altivar 1260

A versatile medium voltage pump, fan, and compressor drive serving multiple segments.

Part of Altivar

The Altivar 1260 is a versatile medium voltage pump, fan, and compressor drive serving multiple segments. Its modular design allows a wide range of ratings and the intuitive architecture makes it easy to operate across the full life cycle.

Altivar 1260
  • Features

    The air cooled Altivar 1260 is composed of a diode rectifier and a medium-voltage IGBT inverter designed to control both synchronous and induction AC motors in a wide variety of industrial applications.

    It can control motors with one or several windings and cater to the needs of redundant, single-motor and multi-motor solutions.
    The system offers RS-485 and Ethernet as basic communication modules, along with a powerful local HMI and a web application that allows control and diagnostics from your PC via your web-browser.

    Its modular high quality design allows a wide range of power (700 to 6,500 HP @ 4,160V, 3 phase) while the intuitive architecture makes the Altivar 1260 more reliable and easy to use and maintain across its full life -cycle.

    The Altivar 1260 combines the latest vector control strategies with the control of 3-level inverters using the latest semiconductor technologies commanded via fiber optic cables. Designed from the ‘inside-out’ to be both grid and motor friendly.
