Issue:
What are the Enclosed Altivar Process Drive Systems offers?

Product Line:
Altivar Drive Systems (ATV660, ATV960, ATV680, ATV980, Outdoor)

Environment:
All serial numbers for Altivar Drive Systems 

Cause:
Schneider Electric offers the following drives as an Enclosed package:
  • Altivar 660 (Compact Drive)
  • Altivar 960 (High Performance Drive Systems)
  • Altivar 680 (Low Harmonics Drive Systems)
  • Altivar 980 (Regenerative Drive Systems)
  • Altivar Process Outdoor Drive (Nema 3r only)

Resolution:
Enclosed System Drives are packaged drives that come standard with the following:
  • Circuit Breaker
  • Line Chokes
  • Control Options (HOA & Speedpot)
  • Light Options
Enclosure Type Options:
  • Nema1
  • Nema 12
  • Nema 3r

Framework:
  • For up to 125hp, the drive will carry the actual Altivar 630/930 power converter.
  • For drives 150hp and over they incorporate a unique style brick design concept. 
    • Each drive has several brick components that each hold or carry certain specific parts.  This parts can be replaced if needed to by replacing that particular brick but must be done by a certified Schneider Personnel 
    • The drive still maintains the same control and power boards parts from the original Altivar 630 or 930 open style drives.
  • ​The enclosed drive packages offer both mounting and floor standing options. 
    • ​Floor Standing models start from a particular hp size. Reference the attached manual for more information. 


Altivar 660 (Compact Drive)
These is a standard 6-pulse enclosed package drive for the Altivar 630 series. 

Concept:
The concept of the ATV660 Compact Drive Systems offers standard enclosures ready to connect. The modular construction makes it possible to adapt the enclosure unit to the individual requests. This economic enclosure
variant makes the planning easy and supports a quick installation and commissioning of the drive.

Size:
  • Ranges from 1hp - 900hp for normal duty
  • Ranges from 1hp to 700hp for heavy duty
Replacement​:
Suitable replacement for our legacy E-Flex, M-Flex (with Altivar 61), EconoFlex, S-Flex 

Ordering:
Can be ordered through Product Selector (E-Way) tool. End Customers must contact Local Distributors for assistance


Altivar 960 (High Performance Drive Systems)
These is a standard 6-pulse enclosed package drive for the Altivar 930 series.

Concept:
The concept of the ATV960 High Performance Drive Systems offers standard enclosures ready to connect. The modular construction makes it possible to adapt the enclosure unit to the individual requests. This economic enclosure
variant makes the planning easy and supports a quick installation and commissioning of the drive.

Size  
  • Ranges from 1hp - 900hp for normal duty
  • Ranges from 1hp to 700hp for heavy duty
Replacement​:
Suitable replacement for our legacy M-Flex (with Altivar 71), EconoFlex

Ordering:
Can be ordered through Product Selector (E-Way) tool. End Customers must contact Local Distributors for assistance
 
Altivar 680 (Low Harmonic Drive Systems)
These is a 12 pulse low harmonic drive system with and Active Front End Rectifier Circuit for the Altivar 630 series.

Concept:
The ATV680 Low Harmonic Drive Systems are used when drives should contain mains harmonics particularly low.
In comparison with the classic circuit structure of active mains rectifiers, the 3-level technology allows an increase of the switching frequency and the current load is reduced at the same time. This new technology reaches a total
distortion factor THD(i) of around 2 % and thus fulfills the requirements according to IEEE 519 of THD(i) < 5 % also in case of distorted mains.

Size  
  • Ranges from 1hp - 900hp for normal duty
  • Ranges from 1hp to 700hp for heavy duty
Replacement​:
Suitable replacement for our legacy 18 Pulse Drives (with Altivar 61)

Ordering:
Can be ordered through Product Selector (E-Way) tool. End Customers must contact Local Distributors for assistance

Altivar 980 (Regenerative Drive Systems)
These is a regenerative drive enclosed built system with and Active Front End Rectifier Circuit for the Altivar 930 series.

Concept:
The ATV980 Regenerative Drive Systems increase the efficiency by feeding back the drive energy to the mains.
An absolutely new developed concept based on a 3-level technology allows the full energy flow in both directions and reduces the total harmonic distortion THD(i) to a value less than 5 % at the same time.

Size  
  • Ranges from 1hp - 900hp for normal duty
  • Ranges from 1hp to 700hp for heavy duty
Replacement​:
Suitable replacement for our 18 Pulse Drives (with Altivar 71)

Ordering:
Cannot be ordered through Product Selector (E-Way) tool.
Distributors must go through our Drives Quotation Group. 
End Customers must contact Local Distributors for assistance


Altivar 630 Outdoor Drive (Nema 3r Only)
These is an outdoor enclosed package drive for the Altivar 630 series. 
Size:
  • Ranges from 1hp - 250hp
Replacement​:
Suitable replacement for our legacy Altivar 61/71 Outdoor Drives

Ordering:
Can be ordered through Product Selector (E-Way) tool. End Customers must contact Local Distributors for assistance
