Student wind problem solved
25 January 2013
When an old inverter driving airflow through a simple wind tunnel broke down, bringing student research to a stop at Coventry University, Lenze partner Modern Drives & Controls stepped in with an IP65 enclosed SMV inver
The Lenze SMV inverters can be mounted without a panel in areas where there might be splashed water or low pressure jets. They cover a range from 0.25 to 7.5kW with options for 1 and 3 phase supplies in a range from 120 to 600VAC. The wind tunnel required a 0.75kW drive for a single phase 240VAC supply.
SMV inverters are sensorless vector drives with high performance, for example 200% starting torque and a highly dynamic response.
