Bison Gear & Engineering Corp. (St. Charles, IL) announced the release of the highly-versatile and easy-to-commission Bison Variable Frequency Drive.
The Bison VFD features:
- Adjustable operating speed.
- Flexible mounting options.
- Capability to control most types of motors.
- Suitability for a variety of industrial and outdoor applications.
The Bison VFD reduces energy consumption by enabling electric motors to operate at less than full speed.
By allowing the operator to match the speed of the motor-driven equipment to the process requirement, the Bison VFD cuts down on energy costs and reduces wear on the motor.
The Bison VFD controls multiple motor types:
Multiple configurations are available in voltages 110-480V and in both single and 3-Phase input options. The sensorless vector controls all types of motors including:
- Brushless DC
- Permanent magnet
- Synchronous reluctance
The panel-mounted Bison VFD is outdoor-rated, washdown-ready and dust-tight.
The simple commissioning consists of a straightforward 14-parameter basic setup, with default settings suitable for most applications.
