The G5 drive is a general-purpose drive, intended for a broad range of applications in Industrial Automation. Accordingly, it is available with many choices of I/O, communications, and software. It is
available in constant torque ratings,3/4 to 500 horsepower. The G5 HHP is available to 1500 HP.
The G5 Drive produced an output of adjustable voltage and frequency to control the speed of a squirrel cage induction motor. This PWM design provided low motor noise and high starting torque. Current overload rating was 150% for 60 seconds. The drive provided 3 modes of control and speed accuracy to suit application requirements; V/Hz (2%), sensor less vector (0.1%), or flux vector control (0.01% with motor-mounted encoder and drive-mounted PG-X2 card required).
The G5 GPD515 Drive is a Legacy product and is no longer promoted.
