DCS Weg Canada MW500 1 400

November 12, 2021


A Decentralized solution brings independence for all applications. The MW500 covers power levels from 1.1 to 7.5 kW (1.5 to 10 HP).

Versatile: The MW500 is an inverter with IP66 rating and special mounting characteristics for environments that require high degree of protection. It offers VVW vector or V/F scalar control and can be vertically mounted in electrical panels or mounting surface.


  • Single phase power supply (200-240 V) or three-phase power supply (380-480 V);
  • Rated current: up to 16 A (10 cv);
  • VVW vector or V/F scalar control;
  • SoftPLC – adds the functionalities of a PLC to the MW500;
  • Economy of space and electrical installation;
  • Low harmonic distortion – compliance with IEC 61000-3-12 standard;
  • Aluminum frame;
  • NEMA 4X/IP66 protection degree;
  • It can be coupled to the WEG W22 motor line, or mounted in electric panels or surfaces;
  • Dedicated potentiometer for speed reference;
  • Dedicated PTC;
  • Operating temperature: 0º to 40ºC;
  • Switch-disconnector (optional);
  • Operation indicator LED;
  • Compatible with the main accessories of the CFW500 family;
  • Standard RS485 network;

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
