Altivar 32 Variable Frequency Drive VFD

Drives for complex machines 0.18 to 15 kW (0.25 to 20 Hp)

Part of Altivar

The Altivar™ 32 ATV32 variable speed drive provides a high degree of performance and connectivity while reducing panel space and improving uptime. With its extra-slim, book-style design, the Altivar 32 allows users to mount it side-by-side and integrate it into tight spaces, minimizing wiring and machine costs. The Altivar 32 has the capability to perform logic, counting, and timing functions to replace external devices and has embedded safety such as Safe Torque Off and Safe Limited Speed.

Altivar 32 Variable Frequency Drive VFD
  • Features

    Altivar 32, with its extra-slim format, offers numerous advantages in the control of asynchronous and synchronous motors operating in open loop mode :

    • More innovations
      Narrower product (45 mm wide) thru 2 HP, 60mm wide thru 5 HP
      . Vertical mounting, side-by-side or sideways for shallow cabinets
      . Over current protection with GV devices mount directly on top of the product thru 5 HP
      . Embedded Bluetooth (add 437 suffix to the part number): remote adjustment and parameter setting via PC
      . Configuration with the power off in its original packaging
    • More Flexibility
      Integrated programmable logic functions
    • More safety functions
       Numerous safety functions as standard
      - STO (Safe Torque Off)
      - SLS (Safely Limited Speed) with SDI
      - SS1 (Safe Stop 1)
    • More open : 
      . Either Modbus or CANopen is integrated as standard. Other protocols are available by simply inserting a communication cassette in the drive :
      - CANopen Daisy Chain (for connecting the drives in a daisy chain easily)
      - EtherNet/IP - Modbus TCP (double port)
      - Profibus
      - DeviceNet
      - EtherCat
    • Tools common to several other Schneider Electric products, adapted to each type of user
      (System Integrator, Panel Builder, programmer, operator)
      - Remote graphic display terminal for remote configuration
      -  Multi Loader for storing configurations and loading them quickly
      -  Simple Loader for duplicating and loading a configuration
    • SoMove software for configuring on PC and transferring the configuration via Bluetooth® or using a cable

      - Extremely compact motor starter control
      - Enclosures can be 40% smaller
    • Very complete
      - More than 150 integrated application functions
      - Perform simple control system functions with integrated logic control
      - Machine safety functions as standard
    • Very user-friendly
      - Quick wiring and programming
      - Configuration in its original packaging even with the power off
    • Open
      - Communicates with most industrial networks
      - CANopen or Modbus as standard
    • Economical
      - 10% more energy efficiency, on average, with a synchronous motor in open loop mode, by optimizing  performance at low speed.


    • Hoisting machines: pick and place
    • Packaging machines: sealing, boxing, wrapping
    • Material working machines: on the fly operations, cut, drill, press, form, emboss
    • Smart material handling: gappers, palletizers
    • Food & Beverage: flow pack, bagging, dispensing


    • Complete motor starter with GV2 circuit-breaker
    • Side-by-side mounting:  save up to 40% space
