Commander ID 300, a new integrated drive for IMfinity ® motors

With the transition to Industry 4.0 under way, production is evolving in an increasingly complex and demanding environment. As a consequence, companies require more and more quality, risk management, equipment performance and compliance to standards.

Commander ID 300, a new integrated drive for IMfinity ® motors

To meet these strategic challenges, Leroy-Somer has designed Commander ID300, a new integrated drive for the control of its IMfinity ® induction motors from 0.25 to 7.5 kW. A decentralized system, the motor and drive assembly offer strong dynamic performance and outstanding efficiency levels.

The decentralized configuration offers greater flexibility in machine and plant design. Other advantages include space saving, as no cabinet is required, lower overall costs due to the elimination of cables between drive and motor, lower power losses and reduced emission interferenc"

Benefitting from IMfinity ® motor's proven mechanical construction, Commander ID300 is extremely robust. This robustness is enhanced by the use of latest generation electronic components for power and control.

To offer a high level of performance, Commander ID300 is provided with advanced features for optimizing machine and process performance: onboard PLC, fieldbus communication, extra input/output or preset configurations such as a pump program for pressure regulation (constant pressure / variable flow).

The motor performance is guaranteed with auto calibration and drive setup carried out at the factory, including optimized starting torque, high dynamics on fast transient load and operation at constant torque using flux vector control across the entire speed range.

Commander ID300 offers energy efficiency standards higher than system classification IES2 (EN 61800-9-2), enhancing energy savings. The drive also features a low power standby mode for applications with significant periods of idleness.

Commander ID300 has been designed on a modular concept: the wide choice of options and adaptations enables configuration in line with machine architecture. The system can also be combined with an FFB brake for dynamic braking and /or gears from the multiposition 3000 range, ensuring maximum adaptability.

Designed for industrial environments as standard, this all-in-one drive solution is ideal for applications in the manufacturing, process and intralogistics sectors.
