i500 series frequency inverters

Less means more.

i500 is the new frequency inverter series in the 0.33 to 177 Hp (0.25 to 132 kW) power range. Its distinguishing features: a streamlined design, scalable functionality and exceptional user-friendliness.

i500 provides a high-quality frequency inverter that already conforms to future standards in accordance with the EN 50598-2 efficiency classes (IE). Overall, this provides a reliable and future-proof drive for a wide range of machine applications.

The i500 frequency inverters are ideal for applications in the pumps and fans, conveyors, formers, winders, traveling drives, tool and hoist drives.
