Mitsubishi Electric is celebrating 30 years of manufacturing variable speed drives, with unit sales of over 15 million frequency inverters worldwide. The company has continuously contributed innovations to variable speed drive technology over the years, including developing products that meet the need for energy savings.
Furthermore, as global standards and specifications emerge and evolve, Mitsubishi Electric has developed new products and technologies to fulfil application requirements. One example is the Machinery Directive – the company responded with innovative safety technologies and techniques that protect users and machines alike. Typical of these developments are the features included in the most recent product range – the FR-E700SC. This new series provides integrated safety as standard, with Safe Torque Off (STO) functionality and an advanced spring clip terminal design.
