Invertek Drives launches extended Optidrive Coolvert range with higher power ratings at MCE 2024

Invertek Drives has revealed the extension of its industry-leading Optidrive Coolvert (HVAC-R) variable frequency drive (VFD) with the launch of two new compact frame sizes with higher power ratings at MCE – Mostra Convegno Expocomfort 2024, Milan, Italy (Stand K53), that took place from March 12-15, 2024.

Specifically designed for BLDC compressors, Heat Pumps and Condensing Units (CDUs), Optidrive Coolvert allows OEMs in the HVAC-R sector to achieve optimal system performance in a compact space.

A key highlight is its compatibility with A2L, A3 refrigerants, and CO2, including R290 and R744 natural refrigerants, supporting F-Gas regulations.

The new Frame Sizes 3 and 4 extend the Coolvert range, significantly increasing output current capabilities:

  • Extended power range: Meeting the demands of Scroll compressor manufacturers for higher capacity output, with 400V, 3 Phase output current reaching 30A and 39A in Frame Size 3, and 46A to 58A in Frame Size 4.
  • Space saving design: The smallest drives in their class, saving valuable space within OEM machines for applications like refrigeration and heat pumps.

These new additions join the existing Coolvert range, renowned for:

  • Easiest setup and matching: Only five parameters to set for seamless BLDC/PMAC compressor motor configuration.
  • Market-leading compactness: Achieved through innovative slim DC link technology.
  • Flexible mounting options: Through panel mounting and cold plate options for maximum design freedom.
  • Effortless compliance: No external components are needed to meet EN61800-3-2 / EN61800-3-12 harmonics standards.

“Coolvert is the ideal choice for OEMs seeking high-performance, space-saving solutions for natural refrigerant BLDC compressors,” said Mike Carman, Executive Business Development Manager HVAC-R at Invertek Drives.

“These new Coolvert sizes allow our customers to optimise system design and efficiency while complying with evolving global environmental and emission regulations, such as the latest F-Gas requirements in the European Union. The VFDs smaller footprint is particularly valuable for applications where space is a premium, and the extended power range opens doors for new applications.

“Beyond the benefits for OEMs, the Coolvert VFDs are ideal for a wide range of sectors increasingly reliant on energy-efficient and environmentally friendly HVAC-R technology. This includes data centres, supermarkets, industrial process cooling, and building air conditioning systems.”
