Nidec Launches U.S. Motors Brand Hybrid Drives

July 21, 2016
Digital AC drives are designed for easy, out-of-the-box installation.

Nidec Motor Corporation (NMC) launches U.S. Motors brand hybrid drives for commercial and industrial applications. The 1-10 HP drives are part of NMC’s Accu-Series line of variable speed and inverter duty products. The off-the-shelf digital AC drives typically require no programming or commissioning, are easy to install and can usually be up and running in 10 minutes, according to the company. They come with an analog interface.

The drives are available as IP20, NEMA 1/IP20 & 50 and NEMA 4X/IP65. All are in stock, from basic enclosures to those used for indoor and outdoor watertight applications. If an off-the-shelf drive does not meet OEM needs, NMC can customize a drive for the specific application. NMC can pre-calibrate or program a stock control (adding a custom label, custom branding and custom software or PLC functions) or design an entirely new control.
