AF-300 Mini™ Adjustable Frequency Drive
The GE AF-300 Mini Drive is a compact but powerful and easy to use AC GE variable speed drive. The GE drive is available in its standard configuration that includes built-in dynamic braking control, single turn potentiometer for speed reference, and LED display. GE variable frequency drive models are available with 115V single- phase, 230V single phase and three-phase, and 460V three phase input and from 1/8 hp to 5 hp.
With standard functions like high starting torque and energy savings mode the AF-300 Mini fits most conveyor, fan, and pump applications easily. Its compact size, side-by-side mounting, and optional DIN rail adapter also make it a time and space saver for OEM’s and panel builders. The AF-300 Mini GE Drive is also available in multiple factory configurations that make it even more flexible. The AF-300 Mini GE Drive can be ordered complete with built-in dynamic braking resistor and/or CE compliant EMC filter. It also has an optional RS485 RTU serial communications card as well as a NEMA 1 kit that allows for standalone applications.
AF-300 P11™ Adjustable Frequency Drive
The AF-300 P11 GE drive is designed for variable torque applications and is ideal for pump systems and air moving systems. Easy operation is achieved with simple commands from a local or remote keypad or from facility management systems. Pre-loaded motor parameters and factory defaults are included for out-of-the-box installation. The GE AF-300 P11 offers 1/4 to 150 hp ratings in 230 Vac and 1/2 to 800 hp ratings in 460 Vac for even greater versatility.
Standard features include Modbus® RTU1 for simple connection to the process controller. The energy-saving design helps reduce operating costs, and all models carry the global acceptance of UL, cUL, and EN/CE.
The GE AF-300 P11 drive is the perfect solution for variable torque loads such as fans and pumps. With features such as catch-a-spinning motor, reverse operation lockout, automatic cooling fan control, automatic restart and tripless operation via overload, and acceleration time control, this drive can provide years of trouble-free operation.
All of this power, versatility, and reliability in one compact drive. In ratings of 30 hp and less, the AF-300 P11 is designed for side-by-side installation with zero clearance for optimum use in space restricted areas.
AF-300 E11™ Adjustable Frequency Drive
The AF-300 E11 GE adjustable frequency drive is General Electric’s new generation of micro drives. GE recognized your need for a high-performance, full featured compact drive and designed the AF-300 E11 drive with these features in mind. This General Electric drive product is specifically intended for original equipment manufacturers who require maximum performance in a minimal space for a cost-effective system.
AF-300 G11™ Adjustable Frequency Drive
The AF-300 G11 GE drive is designed to be one of the most versatile drives in the industry. Easy operation is achieved with simple commands from a local or remote keypad or from facility management systems. Preloaded motor parameters and factory defaults are included for out-of-the-box installation. The AF-300 G11 GE drive offers 1/4 to 125 hp ratings in 230 Vac and 1/2 to 600 hp ratings in 460 Vac.
New standard features include:
- Modbus® RTU for simple connection to a PLC controller.
- Reduced electrical noise and less voltage spiking with the new
generation of IGBT.
- PID control with simplified settings.
- Catch-a-spinning motor.
- Restart feature for extended outages.
- Keypad with backlight and parameter storage feature, as well
as operational diagnostics.
The AF-300 G11 GE drive is also available with an optional PG feedback card for closed loop vector control. Online tuning provides a continuous check for variations of motor characteristics during running of high precision speed control. The available pattern operation allows up to seven stages of pre-programmed accel/decel and speed patterns that can be used for batch processes.
All of this power, versatility, and reliability in one compact drive. In ratings of 30 hp and less, the AF-300 G11 is designed for side-by-side installation with zero clearance for optimum use in space restricted areas.
