Sontay partners with Invertek to offer inverter drives

Sontay, Invertek, inverted drive

Sontay has teamed up with drive specialist Invertek to offer two inverter ranges for HVAC fan and pump applications. These ID-CT (standard inverters) and ID-VT (variable-speed) drives have an innovative, compact design for robustness, reliability and easy-to-use performance.

For pump applications, these drives can help ensure an evenly distributed workload for maximum productivity. They also have an energy-saving sleep mode at low- or zero-flow conditions, automatic dry shutdown and the capability to reduce flow and maintain supply in the event of a burst pipe or leak.

For air-handling equipment with valves, fans and dampers, these drives provide effective control, enabling easy frequency skipping when required, immediate broken-belt warning to reduce fan downtime and an alarm over-ride mode to keep the drive operating as long as possible if a fire breaks out.

Both ranges have intuitive keypad control. They can be programmed through the keypad or via a PC, PDA or smartphone. They have Modbus RTU serial communications.
