ATV12 drive

Drives for simple machines from 0.18 to 4 kW

Part of Altivar

Variable speed drives for small machines with three-phase 240 V 0.18 to 4 kW asynchronous motor

ATV12 drive
  • Features

    Designed for integration

    • Advanced functions for increased productivity (integrated PID, multi-speed, etc.)
    • Easy communication with machine components via integrated universal Modbus serial link
    • Smaller footprint, as the baseplate mounted version dissipates heat into the machine frame

    Highest quality

    • Improved performance for your motors thanks to:
    • The factory settings, which provide a high quality drive from the very first time the power is turned on
    • The integration of Standard (U/f), Performance (sensorless flux vector control, or SVC) and Pump/Fan (quadratic profile Kn²) control profiles
    • High dynamic performance on acceleration and braking
    • Excellent speed regulation on machine load surges
    • Reduced noise and maintenance

    Designed for easy fitting and wiring: 

    • Easy access angles
    • Numerous, easy to identify markings
    • Fast detection and protection against motor current peaks (common in motor switching and catch on the fly applications)
    • Perfect integration of single-phase 240 V model into the electrical network thanks to its built-in EMC filter

    Save time on wiring

    • Easy access to all the wiring and settings on the front panel
    • Easy access angles
    • Only one screwdriver needed for all connections

    Save time on programming

    • A navigation button for easy menu access: configure your application parameters in just a few clicks
    • A three-level menu structure
    • Reference Mode: In local operation (On/Off buttons) and for speed adjustment and display
    • Monitoring Mode: For displaying parameters (create your own menu)
    • Configuration Mode: For configuring your applications and settings

    Save time on commissioning

    • The drive can be configured before it is received (by the distributor), during storage (by the storekeeper) or during fitting before the electrical enclosure is powered up for the first time
    • No adjustment is required and there is a quick start guide for immediate setup
    • Ease of programming: Work in the language of your choice
    • SoMove software for configuring on PC and transferring the configuration via Bluetooth® or using a cable
    • Simple configuration transfer via Simple or Multi-Loader


    Discreet in size but big on performance!
    The Altivar 11 range is replaced by the Altivar 12 range.
    Variable speed drives for small machines with three-phase 240 V asynchronous motor

    0.18 to 0.75 kW, 120 V single-phase power supply
    0.18 to 2.2 kW, 240 V single-phase power supply
    0.18 to 4 kW, 240 V three-phase power supply

    • Can be configured in its packaging
    • Quick start option requiring no adjustment
    • Intuitive navigation
    • Even more compact
    • Category 1 EMC filter
    • Local control on the front panel
    • Modbus serial link
    • Resistant to harsh operating environments



    • Commercial equipment
    • Handling (access barriers, rotating advertising billboards)
    • Health (medical beds, treadmills)
    • Food and beverage (commercial ovens, mills, kneading machines, mixers, etc.)
    • Small machines for industry
    • Material handling (small conveyors, etc.)
    • Packaging (small labelling machines, small bagging machines)
    • Pumping applications (suction pumps, centrifugal pumps, circulating pumps, etc.)
    • Machines fitted with fans (air or smoke extraction, plastic film making machines, ovens, boilers, etc.)
    • Other applications
    • Mobile machines and small devices equipped with a power socket
    • Applications which traditionally use other solutions (2-speed DC motors, mechanical drives, etc.)
