Range: 45 to 2800 kW

Leroy-Somer’s range of high-power modular drives is evolving in the shape of Powerdrive MD2 – an even more compact and user-friendly drive. The combination of power modules and the choice of cooling method make it possible to create multiple optimized configurations: 6-pulse, low-frequency harmonics, regenerative or DC bus solution.

Powerdrive MD2 provides high-performance control of motors, making it the ideal choice for any industrial or commercial variable speed application up to 2800 kW (pumping, ventilation, compression, etc).

For artificial lift, Leroy-Somer has developed a dedicated offering with options for export pumps, PCP, ESP and ESPCP, Onshore and Offshore installations. 

Power to suit your needs: modular design, flexible.

6,12,18,24 pulses or Active Front End (Low Harmonics or Regenerative)

 Energy savings: POWERDRIVE MD2 is the Solution!

 Systems: to customer specification, complete turnkey offer.

 Integrated safety functions: Safe Torque Off inputs, diagnostics menu, emergency run mode.

 Permanent magnet synchronous motors in virtual sensor mode: Elimination of restrictions relating to the sensor wiring, 75% of Tn on starting, precise speed control from 1/20th of the rated speed

 Optimized dimensions: 250 kW 6 pulses in 400 mm cabinet

 Optimized operation: self-diagnostics of power and control on each power-up, customized functions, maintenance reduced to the absolute minimum.
