What you'll learn
  • To program the VFD and Servo with customize parameter suitable to the application
  • To design turn key circuit for VFD's and Servo Drives
  • To interface VFD's and Servo with PLC for intelligent operation
  • Internet

This course will teach you step by step How to Install & program AC Drives i.e. VFD- Variable Frequency Drives and Servo Drives in any control system. AC Drives are used to control the Speed, Operation, Torque & direction of Motor.

This course includes High Quality AC Drive Video Tutorial on various Programming parameter which makes the motor control Operation Intelligent.

We have made explanation by Real Time LIVE Camera & Designing Software to understand the concept clearly.

This video explains how we can alter the acceleration & deceleration time in the VFD. This is mandatory & time varies as per the application.

Preview 04:58

Jog Mode is also known as "Inch", In this mode, we can assign Customize Freq. (Jog Freq) to run the motor by Push button. This mode is required many a times in Maintenance operation for adjustment of motor position or to run motor temporarily at slow speed

Jog Mode of Operation in VFD

This video explains How to select second source of frequency. In VFD, you can assign two sources & can toggle between these two source on your favorable condition. Check out this video to know more..

How to select the Multiple Sources of Frequency in VFD

Here, We have shown how to disable reverse operation of the motor by using special parameter.

How to Disable the Reverse Operation of Motor?

This video explains "How to Secure the Parameter" from unauthorized access.

How to Secure/Lock your Parameter?

This video explain Multiple Frequency options in the VFD. In an application where you want to change the speed by actuation of Sensor, Limit switch or any other condition. We can have 3 or more step speed in VFD

Multi-step Speed Commands in VFD
+ Internal PLC Mode Operation in VFD
3 lectures 13:14

Do you know, some VFD's has an Internal PLC. Check out its functionality in this video. It explains how you can have 7 Steps of Frequency with respective time frame.

Internal PLC Mode - I
Internal PLC Mode- II & III
Internal PLC Mode- Direction Control
+ Other Special Parameters in VFD
5 lectures 18:33

This video is about changing the Acc./Dec. time to another range.

Acceleration & Deceleration Time 2 & Speed Inhibit

This video explains how to limit the frequency of VFD under certain bounded frequencies

How to Bound the Frequency of Drive (Upper Bound & Lower Bound Function)

This videos show's how to Reset the External fault using external input.

Preview 03:31

Delta VFD has internal counter, which can be used to count the events & take action once the count is complete.

Internal Counter of VFD

This video explains how we can change the external control of VFD (Keypad, 0 ~ 10 VDC, 4 to 20 mA, Comm.)
