Forget everything you know about ordinary drives
Why? Because now, with Altivar Process, the first services-oriented drive, drives have entered a brand new era. Thanks to their convergence of IT and OT technologies, Altivar Process is able to leverage the power of the Internet of Things, making it the only drive that can truly help you achieve optimized business and process performance.
According to Alain Dedieu, Senior Vice President, Drives Activity, Schneider Electric, “Services-oriented drives are much more than a drive. Above and beyond traditional functions to control the motor and the application, a services-oriented drive is capable of delivering services to the customer that can boost their entire business. The services-oriented drive is built into their architecture and is focused on optimizing business performance, overall equipment efficiency, and total cost of ownership (TCO). Altivar Process is proof of the positive impact that the Internet of Things will have in the industrial world”.
Unmatched efficiency and asset performance
Altivar Process is a complete range of variable speed drives for process applications from 0.75 to 1.5 MW. Through advanced system and equipment condition monitoring,Altivar Process ensures that applications are performing at optimum efficiency at all times. Enriched data on asset performance is served in real time,
allowing the automation system to instantly detect efficiency drift and to react immediately before it impacts your bottom line.What’s more, Altivar Process enables truly predictive maintenance thorough condition monitoring, remote diagnostics, and troubleshooting that helps you minimize unplanned downtime, improve energy efficiency, and reduce TCO right down to the asset level. And, thanks to embedded Ethernet, you have unlimited and secure access to your application via mobile devices and web services, anytime, and from anywhere. Error messages generate dynamic QR codes for immediate access to relevant information that helps you solve problems right on the spot, while QR codes printed directly on the drives provide instant access to customer care centres and online troubleshooting.
Compact, modular, and flexible, Altivar Process fits any application and is simple to install and integrate, whether in new installations, retrofits, or upgrades.
A green drive
Even at the end of its useful life, Altivar Process contributes to your sustainability goals because 70 percent of its components can be recycled. It even goes beyond environmental regulations of today thanks to compliance with the European RoHS directive and REACH regulations.
