Protection class IP66


escodrives S3

esco presents the new expanded escodrives series S3 IP66 OUTDOOR.

The escodrives S3 frequency inverter series has been expanded with the products in protection class IP66 OUTDOOR. In the power range from 0.37 kW to 22 kW we offer a compact and robust product for the optimization of your applications.

This new facelift variant is made of robust polycarbonate plastics, remains resistant to temperatures down to -20°C and does not become brittle.

The closed and dustproof frequency inverters are suitable for direct mounting on the machine. They are splash-proof and washable. The coated, corrosion-resistant heatsinks, which are especially resistant to UV, greases, oils and acids, are ideal for use in hygiene-sensitive companies such as food and beverage manufacturers.

In the front of the frequency inverter, a lockable main switch, a reversing switch (Run Reverse / OFF / Run Forward) and a setpoint potentiometer are integrated even after the facelift.

Just like the EDS3 IP20 series, this series also impresses with its wide range of applications, its simple operation and numerous accessories.

Whether industrial, pump or fan mode: The application macros allow the escodrives S3 to be adapted to your desired application.

  • Integrated PI control
  • Integrated EMC filter C1
  • Integrated Braking chopper from 2.2kW
  • Application macros for industrial-, fan- and pump operations
  • connectivity with the optional escodrives Stick
  • Easy configuration and installation
  • Options for all usual Fieldbus systems
  • ModbusRTU® and CANopen® as standard
  • escodrives Tools -Software for easy set up and diagnosis
  • Sensorless Vector Control for all Motor Types (IM, PM, BLDC; SynRM, LSPM)
