The NE-S1 variable frequency drive offers the end user and integrator the ability to use the control out of the box, with popular preconfigured and simple default settings. In addition, a wide variety of options are available to configure the control for a specific application.

These powerful pre-configured inverters allow the use of remote mounted speed potentiometers, contacts or switches, and preset speed selections without any parameter changes--saving time during the installation and integration process.

A wide variety of keypad options are also available to make the inverter a full keypad configurable unit, complete with a built-in speed potentiometer. High-volume applications will benefit from the use of the company’s downloadable ProDriveNext software to configure the inverter for further flexibility.

Additional features and options include:  pre-configured parameters; optional field-installed operator display; 3-wire Start Stop compatibile; RS-485 Modbus RTU standard; logic and time delay functions built in; energy-saving function standard; CE/UL/cUL/c-Tick approvals; optional door mounted display; loss of signal protection; sink or source input compatible.
