WEG introduces the new MVW3000 Medium Voltage Variable Speed Drive. With an easy-to-use HMI, which follows the same programming concept used by the LV line, the MVW3000 is perfect for a wide range of industrial applications that require speed variation, such as compressors, pumps, fans, conveyor belts and mills.

MVW3000 is a Voltage Source Inverter (VSI) based on the multi-level Cascaded H-Bridge (CHB) topology. The almost sinusoidal output waveforms produced by the drive allow the use of this VSD with new or existing synchronous and induction motors without demanding especial insulation.

User-friendly HMI

A door mounted 10-inch touch screen HMI offers great flexibility to the operator allowing easy access to user process data in real-time. Intuitive operation makes equipment parameterization, status reading and alarm/fault logging simple tasks.

It also supports several languages, multiple protection levels against unauthorized access, graphic and plotting functions.

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.
