    Altivar 212

    Dedicated HVAC drives for 1 to 100 hp motors

    Orientated towards performance, intelligence and building protection

    Altivar 212
    • Features

      The Altivar 212 is a variable speed drive for 3-phase asynchronous motors from 1 to 100 hp. It is specifically intended for the most commonly encountered fluid management applications in tertiary sector buildings (HVAC): heating, ventilation, air conditioning and pumping. Due to its eco-energy based design, energy savings of up to 70% can be achieved compared to a traditional control system.

      Characteristics:

      • Altivar 212 covers motor powers between 1 ho and 100 hp on the following supplies:
        •200…240V 3-phase, from 1 to 40 hp, IP 21
        •380…480V 3-phase, from 1 to 100 hp, IP 21
        •380…480V 3-phase, from 1 to 100 hp, UL Type 12/IP 55
      • Speed range: 1:50
      • Transient overtorque: 110% - 60 s.
      • Integrated EMC filters, categories C1 to C3 depending on model
      • Communication bus most commonly used on the market integrated: Modbus, METASYS N2®, APOGEE FLN P1® and BACnet®. Optional: LonWorks 
      • Complies to international standards and certifications: UL, CSA, C-Tick and NOM
      • Antiharmonic technology enables a THDI < 30% to be achieved

      Benefits

      Centred on Centralised Technical Management

      • Instant viewing of the energy consumption.
      • Detection of failures for quick intervention: belt breakage, pump running dry, phase failure, supply fault, etc.
      • Preventative maintenance for reducing costs and optimising the equipment: fault alert, operating time, etc.
      • Connection to building supervision network using embedded protocols.

      Centred on user-friendliness

      • Tools for installing, parametering and viewing the installation (remote graphic terminal in 6 languages, Multi-Loader, Bluetooth and SoMove Mobile).
      • Compact size.
      • Simple maintenance.

      Centred on protection

      • Continuity of service assured.
      • Dedicated “Building” series functions (fire mode, register monitoring, mechanical protection function, etc.
      • Integrated EMC filter, antiharmonic technology (THDI ˜ 30%).

      Applications

      Ventilation:

      • Less noise pollution (airdraulic noise, motor noise, etc.).
      • Detection of transmission component breakage.
      • Smoke extraction: forced start with fault inhibition.
      • Automatic restart.
      • Allows register management.

      Heating and Air conditioning:

      • Optimise control in fluid processing.
      • Use of PID controller (temperature, flow rate, pressure, etc.).
      • Adjustable flow rates for better energy management.
      • Suppression of mechanical resonance.

      Pumping:

      • Detection of underload/overload, pump running dry.
      • Multi-motor configuration.
      • Limitation of operating time at low speed.
      • Sleep/Wake function.
      • Pressure surge suppression for prolonging the life of the installation.

      Success Stories

      Transtherm Case Study

      Schneider Electric interviewed Transtherm director Tim Bound about our work together. The industry of tomorrow will be different. More volatile markets, new technology capabilities, increased pressure on performance.
