Simplicity
AC15 is designed to reduce the time and effort required to install, setup and commission through it’s easy to use integrated keypad and application macros, or the powerful DSE Lite tool and rich function block set. Minimal wiring requirements and easily accessed terminals make AC15 quick and easy to install. Auto-tuning sensorless vector mode takes AC15 beyond simple V/Hz control allowing users requiring greater dynamic speed or torque control for their application to benefit from the drive’s enhanced speed and torque accuracy.

Reliability
Proven technology and manufacturing techniques ensure AC15 has been engineered and built to deliver consistently outstanding levels of performance day in, day out, ensuring maximum uptime and productivity. Thanks to its conformally coated PCBs, AC15 is capable of withstanding class C3 environments, allowing you to operate AC15 with the utmost confidence in more applications.

Applications
AC15 provides a no-fuss approach to general purpose industrial motor control applications across a wide range of industries, giving users the benefits of the inherent energy-saving properties of using a variable speed drive, as well as the improved reliability and extended service life benefits associated with smoother starting and stopping of regularly cycling loads.
