Altivar 32
  • 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)
      . Vertical mounting, side-by-side or sideways on
      . Circuit-breaker connected directly to the product (same 45 mm width)
      . Configuration with the power off in its original packaging
    • Greater autonomy
      Integrated programmable logic functions
    • More safety functions
       Numerous safety functions as standard
      - STO (Safe Torque Off)
      - SLS (Safely Limited Speed)
      - SS1 (Safe Stop 1)
    • More openness : 
      . Either Modbus or CANopen is integrated as standard. Numerous other industrial communication networks can be accessed 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
      - Etc.
    • Tools common to several other Schneider Electric products, adapted to each type of user
      (cable installer, 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


    So Slim, So smart !

    • Ultra-slim
      - Extremely compact motor starter unit
      - Enclosures can be 40% smaller
    • Very complete
      - More than 150 integrated application functions
      - Performs simple control system functions
      - Machine safety functions as standard
    • Very user-friendly
      - Quick wiring and programming thanks to special tools
      - 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 optimising  performance at low speed.


    • Hoisting machines 
    • Simple packaging machines
    • Material handling machines
    • Textile machines
    • Special machines: wood-working machines, metal processing machinery (bending, welding, etc.), and so on


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