The WEG CFW500 series is a high-performance AC variable frequency drive that supports closed-loop flux vector speed control as well as torque control modes. Until now you had to wait up to several months when ordering drives with high-performance features such as these. Now you can get them shipped straight to you from AutomationDirect.
This VFD gives the user the possibility to choose the plug-in module that best fits his application, or to use the standard version, that comes with the CFW500-IOS plug-in module. All plug-in modules comes with one RS485 port as standard.
The installation of the CFW500 is simple and its configuration and operation is intuitive with the navigation menus of the operating interface (HMI) with built-in LCD display. By using the flash memory module, it is possible to download the existing setting from one CFW500 to other units without powering them up.

Used to reduce risk and to guarantee the safety of personnel and environment if there is a hazardous event due to a fault in operating machines. The embedded safety functions STO and SS1 provide machine builders a cost-effective solution to design protective measures and reduce the risk from unexpected and hazardous movement in industrial machines and processes.
It is applicable if the motor can be brought to a standstill in a sufficiently short time by the load torque or friction or where motor coast to a stop is not relevant to safety.
This function enables motor deceleration and then, after a delay time, activates the STO function. SS1 can be used to implement a controlled stop and then removal of power, fulfilling stop category 1 according to IEC 60204-1. This function is used when, in the event of a safety related fault, the drive must stop as quickly as possible and then enter the STO state. The stopping of a drive by means of SS1 function reduces the risk of danger, eliminates the need of external safety timers, increases the productivity of a machine and allows safety clearances in a machine to be reduced. The reason is the active stopping of the drive as compared with the use of the STO function only.
That's right! The WPS software is a free download. This is a fully featured software suite for drive configuration, monitoring AND for programming the built-in PLC - it's all in one easy-to-use package.
