4 For Schneider Electric Internal Use Only Details Make a Difference E-Flex ™ will provide you with more than just energy savings E-Flex ™ Design Concepts
5 For Schneider Electric Internal Use Only E-Flex ™ Design Concepts ALTIVAR ® 61 AC Variable Torque Drive –Large, easy to use Graphic Display on door mounted keypad –Quick start-up menu with macro-configuration for HVAC Pumps and Fans –Network connectivity for building automation networks Thermal Management System –1-50 HP Type 1 - No internal fans –1-7.5 HP Type 1 - No heat sink fan Front accessible heat sink fans –Eliminates rear access requirements –Ease of repair / service
6 For Schneider Electric Internal Use Only E-Flex ™ Design Concepts Enclosure Designs –Type 1 rated construction Designed for indoor use -- enclosure protects components from physical contact with operating personnel Top and bottom conduit entry with knockouts –Type 12K rated construction Designed for indoor use environments containing dust, dirt, fibers, lint, and non- corrosive dripping liquids Top and bottom conduit entry with knockouts –Type 3R rated construction Designed for outdoor use -- protection from rain, sleet, and ice formation Ideal for ground level or rooftop applications Bottom conduit entry with knockouts
7 For Schneider Electric Internal Use Only E-Flex TM Design Concepts Seismic Qualification Option for Ground and Roof Level Applications Meets 2003 IBC and ASCE 7 standards for seismic qualification in accordance with ICC ES AC156 testing protocol with an Importance Factor of 1.5 for 42 states. Some exceptions include California, Alaska, Hawaii, Kentucky, Tennesse, and Arkansas which are site specific. When mounted in accordance with published guidelines, the E-Flex TM enclosure is designed and constructed to withstand violent vibration loads. E-Flex TM Drives have been subjected to actual shaker table tests and not just theoretical anchorage and bolt-hole calculations for seismic ratings.
8 For Schneider Electric Internal Use Only E-Flex ™ - Type 3R Complete Type 3R Product Lineup –1 to 100 HP @ 460 VAC –1 to 50 HP @ 208/230 VAC –Compact Design 4 physical frame sizes Same mounting size as Type 1 and 12K Indoor Enclosures
9 For Schneider Electric Internal Use Only E-Flex ™ - Type 3R Lower Installed Cost –Shorter conduit runs to motor Reduces motor lead lengths by mounting drive closer to motor Reduces need for motor protection filter –Ideal for retrofit installations Relieves overcrowding in mechanical rooms Reduces heat load in mechanical rooms by mounting outdoors
1010 For Schneider Electric Internal Use Only E-Flex ™ - Type 3R Thermal Management System – +14 to 122 F (-10 to 50 C) ambient temperature rating Thermostatically controlled space heater No air conditioner or special heat exchanger required – Vermin filters on inlet and outlet ventilation openings – “It can handle the weather”
1 For Schneider Electric Internal Use Only E-Flex ™ - Power Options Circuit Breaker Disconnect (standard) –UL 508C listed Short circuit protection for both drive and bypass Eliminates expensive and non- stock, current limiting type fuses –Coordination with NEMA ICS 7.1 Worse case short circuit protection Enhanced personnel safety exceeds minimum UL requirements
1212 For Schneider Electric Internal Use Only E-Flex ™ - Power Options Emergency Full Speed Bypass Option –Mechanical & Electrical interlocked- improved reliability Prevents accidental back feeding of line voltage to drive –Sequenced to provide motor isolation in drive ready state –Bypass and Isolation contactors fully rated –Class 20 overload in bypass mode Provides longer acceleration time for high inertia fans
1313 For Schneider Electric Internal Use Only E-Flex ™ - Power Options Input Line Contactor –Automatically removes power from drive controller when in ready state Competition offers only manual isolation –Used with bypass to meet 3-contactor bypass requirements –Not available with Type 3R Necessary to maintain input power to prevent condensation build up Power requirement for space heaters
1414 For Schneider Electric Internal Use Only E-Flex ™ - Power Options Enclosed Line Reactor –3% reactor is standard –5% line reactor is optional –Reduces input line RMS currents to match output current –Provides additional transient protection from over voltages, power factor capacitor switching
1515 For Schneider Electric Internal Use Only E-Flex ™ - Control Options Control Functions and Options –HAND-OFF-AUTOMATIC Selector Switch Provides remote operation of drive and bypass Auto Restart capability with 2-wire control –3 to 15 PSI Pressure Transducer Pneumatic Interface For retrofit applications using pneumatically controlled devices –TEST-NORMAL Selector Switch (available only with Bypass package) Allows the user to test drive operation without turning the motor Allows the user to test drive operation while running in bypass –Pilot Light Options POWER ON AUTO MODE DRIVE RUN BYPASS RUN FAULT
1616 For Schneider Electric Internal Use Only E-Flex ™ - Control Options Control Functions and Options –Smoke Purge Relay Provides interface to building fire protection system Overrides operator controls and runs motor at full speed on bypass for smoke evacuation Operates drive at high speed setting when bypass is not supplied –Freeze / Fire Stat Interlocks User provided contact (normally closed) from HVAC system Prevents drive or bypass operation in the event of excessive heating or cooling by the HVAC system –Auxiliary Contacts Form C relays for drive run and fault indication –Building Automation Network Communication Capability LonWorks, Modbus, BACnet, Metasys N2, Apogee P1 and Ethernet
