Optimum energy efficiency for fan, pump and compressor applications
  • Powerdrive F300 works with permanent magnet or induction motors to enable the most efficient performance and highest energy savings for fan, pump and compressor applications.


Meets the new energy efficiency legislation and future proof your investment
  • Powerdrive F300 helps IE2 motors comply with the latest European Union Minimum Energy Performance Standard legislation
  • Powerdrive F300 supports both induction and permanent magnet motors, meaning induction motor users can upgrade to permanent magnet without changing the drive


Efficiency on-board
  • Up to 98 % efficient with very low losses
  • Low Power Standby and Sleep/Wake Mode using programmable real-time clock
  • Advanced Rotor Flux Control (RFC)
  • Lower losses at part load for open loop induction motor control are achieved by dynamically changing the switching frequency


Harmonics and drive conformance
  • Total Harmonic Distortion can be reduced through:
    • Adding an AC line reactor
    • Using a 12, 18 or 24 pulse input rectifier solution
    • Active Front End configuration


Environmental safety and electrical conformance
  • UL listed
  • Electromagnetic immunity complies with EN 61800-3 and EN 61000-6-2
  • Electromagnetic emissions comply with EN 61800-3
    • On-board EMC filter, category C3
    • Optional external EMC filter, category C2 depending on power rating and cable length
  • Compliance with EN 61000-3-12 with external line reactor


 Reliability assured
  • Every Powerdrive F300 power module has been subjected to elevated temperature tests that cycle a wide range of load and thermal conditions
  • Powerdrive F300 drives have conformal coating to further increase resilience to harsh environmental conditions
    • Trip avoidance features take intelligent action instead of interrupting critical processes
    • Active thermal monitoring reduces switching frequency as the drive approaches thermal limits
    • Load shedding reduces speed at current limits
  • Supply loss ride-through keeps the drive running during supply brown outs
  • Protection alarms safeguard the wider system
  • Intelligent variable speed fans maximize fan lifetime by reducing wear and tear. The fans are designed for easy replacement
  • Wide supply voltage tolerance keeps operation smooth when supply is variable
  • Motor pre-heat function
  • Envelope control for refrigeration compressors

Flexible and easy system design
  • Powerdrive F300 high power modules are designed to fit in standard 600 mm x 400 mm (23.6 x 15.7 in) cubicles
  • 6,12,18 and 24 pulse input and Active Front End configurations are available
  • Integrated cooling fan power supply means no additional power supplies are required
  • Availability of high power modules means fewer modules per system
  • Onboard PLC for custom logic control
  • Common control interface ensures a consistent programming method and feature set across the range.
  • Familiarity reduces the need for training:
    • Identical parameter structure with Smartcard and SD card cloning support
    • Powerdrive F300 Connect software for monitoring, diagnostics and advanced parameter file management
    • Machine Control Studio for application programming in the IEC61131-3 environment
    • SI-option module support for additional I/O and communications (e.g. Ethernet/IP, PROFINET RT,PROFIBUS)
  • Current loop mode analog I/O


Flexible control capability
  • Two PID controllers with anti-wind-up and user scaling provide flow-specific functionality, enhancing productivity
  • Logic functions including ‘AND’ , ‘OR’, ‘invert’, ‘binary sum’ and ‘timer’ achieved through easy menu set-up
  • Realtime Clock available on the KI-HOA Keypad RTC enables the drive to respond to preset instructions or common demand patterns, helping to save energy
  • Water hammer control with S-ramp deceleration
  • Catch a spinning motor – improved starting sequences for fan and pump control
  • On-board Fire Mode allowing ‘run to failure’ in the event of a fire for smoke extraction
  • Low load condition monitoring and hysteresis for broken belt and dry pump detection


Make compact, easily maintainable systems
  • Overall system size and footprint is kept to a minimum
  • Manageable small and light modules are maintained and replaced rapidly and easily
Reduce your spares inventory
  • Modular approach allows customers to reduce their spares holding
Upgrade Unidrive SP modular systems on fans, pumps and compressors painlessly
