Tiny drive

Controlling small AC motors appears to be where the heavy action is right now. Hitachi is going for this market in a big way with a tiny drive – the L100. Single and three-phase models are available from 0.2kW to 2.2kW, 200V, and in three-phase only from 0.4kW to 7.5kW, 400V. You get PID control and RS422 comms as standard.
