After supplying VFD
compressors for the past 20 years, Atlas Copco developed the
NEOS inverter drive which delivers maximum energy savings for
users of energy consuming air compressors.
INVERTER DRIVE FOR COMPRESSOR
In their relentless pursuit of sustainable productivity
Atlas Copco knew they would have to find an upgrade to the
inverters they had used since introducing VSD compressors two
decades ago. And so, to match the stringent needs of an
air compressor, Atlas Copco developed and now manufactures an
inverter that is designed precisely to meet the heavy duty
requirements of the family of Atlas Copco air compressors,
vacuums, blowers, and air dryers. It is simple in
design, robust, and highly reliable, all while delivering
dramatic energy savings to customers.
Development of the NEOS VSD included rigorous, endurance
field testing in the conditions most compressors operate, in
other words, hot, cold and dusty industrial
environments. Testing included running machines at
maximum load for 10,000 hours. The test included a
variety of machine sizes located between Finland and Bahrain,
so very cold to very hot. The results proved beyond any
doubt that the NEOS VFD performs as designed in the most
difficult, hot, cold, and dusty conditions.
The NEOS variable speed drive is much lighter and smaller
than similar generic units. With the CAN connection to
the Elektronicon controller, no independent display is need
for the VSD drive. If you ever want to look at it from
a PC, use the Ethernet connector, its that simple.
HTE Compressed Air Solutions supplies plant equipment,
including compressors, vacuums, and blowers, with inverter
drives in Kansas, Missouri, and Illinois.
