Atlanta-based WEG Electric Motors Corp., a global supplier of motors, drives, controls, transformers and generators, now offers a comprehensive line of variable frequency drives for powering medium-voltage (MV) motors from 500 to 4,500 horsepower.

Designated the MVW-01 family, the new drives provide a variable-speed control solution for medium-voltage motors powered from mains with 2,300, 3,300, and 4,160 volts of alternating current in critical high-volume pumping, mixing and milling applications across a wide range of industries, according to the company.

MVW-01 drives are designed with a multiprocessing control architecture powered by a high-performance 32-bit processor with 64-bit bus and floating point capability. Using WEG-standard Superdrive programming software, this Windows-compatible processor delivers a straightforward speed variation solution for a MV motor that can be controlled using an external computer or an integral digital keypad to upload or download operating parameters and monitor motor performance.

Each MVW-01 drive is delivered in a self-cooled IP41/NEMA 1 enclosure. Power sections are secured with mechanical interlocks, and the main circuit breaker includes an electromechanical interlock, preventing possible entry when the power is on.
