Mitsubishi Electric Automation introduced the F800 Series variable frequency drive (VFD) for precise motor speed control to improve efficiency of air movement through HVAC systems.
While the F800 is especially suitable for HVAC applications, including air handlers, cooling towers and pumps, this multi-functional F800 is also appropriate for pumps and fans within industrial applications. The F800 controls and supports multiple motor types, including AC induction and permanent magnet motors, eliminating the need to specify multiple VFDs to address various motor control needs. The company says the F800 is also suitable for food and beverage, automotive and water treatment industries.
The F800 uses embedded motor control algorithms that optimize AC motor voltage and current based on the desired load. This drive series also includes energy monitoring capabilities to capture and display actual energy usage.
