Mitsubishi PowerGate 66 IP66 / NEMA 4 Variable Frequency Drive

December 3, 2014

AHP ProwergateThe PowerGate 66 IP66 / NEMA 4 variable frequency drive (VFD) is Mitsubishi’s introduction to the decentralized drive market.

The stand-alone VFD is an engineered solution incorporating a version of the Mitsubishi Electric E700 VFD into a custom made NEMA 4 (water resistant) enclosure allowing the drive to be placed closer to the motor even in harsh environments.

The PowerGate 66 drive is especially suitable for applications that require precise motor speed control, including conveyors used in food and beverage operations and material handling, and the control of pumps and fans in HVAC and water handling applications, or in any application where the drive is exposed to water and dust.
