SD4S Frequency Converter
Ready for the future
Frequency Converter SD4S
The product version SD4S - S for Stand-alone - is the first device of the new product series SD4x. The SD4S devices are designed for stationary use in control cabinets of machine tools, turbo compressors and turbo blowers.
The first available unit type is designed for small high-speed spindles or motors in the power range from a few hundred watts to 1 kW. Application areas are e.g. dental milling machines or machines for super finishing as those required in watchmaking. Since small spindles do not come with a sufficient insulation resistance in the motors, SD4S now features a galvanic isolation of the thermal contact.
An absolute novelty is the design width of 40 mm only. Particularly in applications with many axes and a low performance, the demand for highly compact drive systems is great. Thus, the construction volume has been further reduced. The parameterization is realised via a default Ethernet interface that replaces the USB interface, which in industrial environments is prone to failure. Moreover, SD4S comes with programmable digital measuring system interfaces such as Biss-C, EnDat2.2 and TTL. Via a Webserver, technicians can display device information without the need of additional parameterization software. Thanks to the real-time clock, a time synchronization of an incident is possible: Users can figure out whether a failure has been caused for example by a thunderstorm.
The optimized performance, higher speeds as well as the lower motor heating without sine-wave filter are substantial advantages of SD4S.
