The AC10P drive is one of the smallest fieldbus connected closed-loop variable speed drives available and offers a lost cost, compact solution for the control of AC induction motors in general purpose open and closed loop control applications up to 180kW.

The AC10P variable speed micro drive is a simple, reliable and economical solution to every-day motor control applications requiring speed or torque control within the power range of 0.2kW to 180kW. Having compact dimensions and features normally only associated with higher specification AC drives, including, sensorless vector mode, close loop vector control mode,output frequency up to 590 Hz, It is available in 230V and 400V versions with 150% overload for 60 seconds and in 12 frame sizes. Serial communication Modbus build in as Standard,Profibus DP & EtherCAT Optional, CanOpen, the AC10P provides an optimised solution for OEM machine builders who are looking for a compact, cost-effective, energy saving variable speed ac drive without compromising on performance.


  • Simplicity : AC10P drives are designed to reduce the time and effort required to install, setup and commission through its easy to use integrated keypad. Minimal wiring requirements and two easily accessed terminal rails make AC10P fast and simple to install, having you up and running in no time at all. Auto-tuning sensorless vector mode takes AC10P beyond simple V/Hz control, allowing users requiring greater dynamic speed or torque control for their application to benefit from the drives enhanced 0.5% speed and 5% torque accuracy.
  • Reliability : Proven technology and manufacturing techniques ensure AC10P drives have been engineered and built to deliver consistently outstanding levels of performance day in, day out, ensuring maximum uptime and productivity. Thanks to its conformally coated PCBs, AC10P drives are able to withstand even the most arduous class 3C3 environment which many other AC drives in this class would struggle with, allowing you to operate the AC10P with the utmost confidence in more applications.
  • Control At Your Fingertips : AC10 drives come complete with an ergonomic operator keypad as standard, featuring 4 LED drive status indicators, a 4 digit 7 segment LED display and a tactile membrane style keypad. In addition to displaying status and running information, the LED display is also used to access drive configuration parameters which can be quickly and easily changed via the keypad. The keypad can also be used to take local control of the motor to start, stop, increase or decrease motor speed. An optional keypad is also available and can be mounted remotely from the drive.


AC10P variable speed drives provide a no-fuss approach to general purpose industrial motor control applications across a wide range of industries, giving users the benefits of the inherent energy-saving properties of using a variable speed drive, as well as the improved reliability and extended service life benefits associated with smoother starting and stopping of regularly cycling loads.
