Atlas Copco Expands Neos VSD Technology
Atlas Copco expands its Neos Variable Speed Drive (VSD) technology to include the water- and air-cooled ZR/ZT 75-90 VSD range of oil-free compressors. Designed in-house, Neos inverters are specifically adapted for Atlas Copco compressors in terms of size, simplicity and reliability. When added to the ZR/ZT 75-90 VSD range, the Neos inverter allows for a wider working range in two pressure variants of 8.6 bar and 10.4 bar. The in-house design reportedly ensures the availability of spare parts and replacements and allows for improved control over the lifecycle of the application.
The Neos inverter has endured extensive testing, ensuring high protection and optimized cooling, according to the company. Its compact, robust aluminum enclosure with IP 5X rating keeps dust away from sensitive electronics for trouble-free operation even in harsh industrial conditions. With fewer components, the Neos inverter reportedly has less of an impact on the environment at the end of its lifecycle.
