Altivar 12

Variable Speed Drives for commercial equipment from 0.18 to 4 kW

Part of Altivar

Altivar Machine ATV12 Variable Speed Drive is designed for commercial equipment and small machines with 3-phase 240V for asynchronous motors which require EMC standards up to C1 in residential areas. With dedicated functions and 3 macros applications (Start/Stop, PID, Speed) for simple environments. Embedded with PID, PID feedback supervision, PID Predictive speed, simply Jog functions, Catch on Fly and 8 preset speeds.

Altivar 12
  • Features

    Designed for integrationAdvanced functions for increased productivity (integrated PID, multi-speed, etc.)Easy communication with machine components via integrated universal Modbus serial linkSmaller footprint, as the baseplate mounted version dissipates heat into the machine frameHighest qualityImproved performance for your motors thanks to:The factory settings, which provide a high quality drive from the very first time the power is turned onThe integration of Standard (U/f), Performance (sensorless flux vector control, or SVC) and Pump/Fan (quadratic profile Kn²) control profilesHigh dynamic performance on acceleration and brakingExcellent speed regulation on machine load surgesReduced noise and maintenanceDesigned for easy fitting and wiring: Easy access anglesNumerous, easy to identify markingsFast 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 filterSave time on wiringEasy access to all the wiring and settings on the front panelEasy access anglesOnly one screwdriver needed for all connectionsSave time on programmingA navigation button for easy menu access: configure your application parameters in just a few clicksA three-level menu structureReference Mode: In local operation (On/Off buttons) and for speed adjustment and displayMonitoring Mode: For displaying parameters (create your own menu)Configuration Mode: For configuring your applications and settingsSave time on commissioningThe 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 timeNo adjustment is required and there is a quick start guide for immediate setupEase of programming: Work in the language of your choice SoMove software for configuring on PC and transferring the configuration via Bluetooth® or using a cableSimple configuration transfer via Simple or Multi-Loader


    Discreet in size but big on performance!

    • 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.)
