The FlexPak 3000 digital DC drive features a unique ergonomic user interface that makes for easy application, installation, start-up, operation, maintenance and service. The use of the latest in digital, micro-integrated semiconductor and circuit technology combines simplicity, flexibility and reliability in a compact package.


  • Simple: All control, signal and power field wiring is readily accessible through supplied terminal boards to streamline installation. Setup and operation is coordinated with a large graphics display and keypad using plain text. Diagnostic and status information as well as help text are displayed and entered in one of five languages easily selected through the keypad. A "Quick-Start" menu combines with self tuning of the speed and current loops to ensure straightforward drive setup and startup.
  • Flexible: While most applications are handled through standard drive software, many standard hardware kits and options are available allowing the drive's capability to be expanded with ease. The FlexPak 3000 is easily modified for input line voltages and frequencies used in many countries and displays setup, operating, status and diagnostic information in five different languages.
  • Reliable: The FlexPak 3000 uses the latest in high density power semiconductor devices, surface mount and sub micron ASIC technology. A power interface board circuit provides the noise suppression and firing circuits and connects to the digital regulator with only a single ribbon cable.
  • Compact: Extensive use of molded parts allows for a high density power module without compromising the accessibility of options and circuits. The packaging is compact yet allows for easy field wiring, mounting, modification or service. The basic chassis design can be easily converted to a NEMA I enclosure using available NEMA I conversion kits or floor mount NEMA I enclosures for high HP controllers.
