Toshiba's heavy duty S15 adjustable speed drive is a compact and high performance drive designed for controlling a wide range of variable and constant torque applications. This micro-drive is capable of working with permanent magnet (PM) motors, which allows for greater flexibility in selecting a motor for an application and optimizes energy savings. A robust design allows the S15 to operate in extreme temperatures and environments. In addition, the S15 features advanced technologies, and an expanded PID control allows a greater level of precise control and operation of difficult level control applications. No other micro-drive delivers such reliable and extreme performance with extensive capabilities at such a competitive cost.
The S15 is one of the most compact drives available on the market. This drive makes a fantastic choice if footprint or price is an issue for the end user as it still offers heavy duty ratings through a 150%/60s overload rating and up to 60C ambient temperature.
Separates the S15 from the competition, as one of the smallest drives offered in the industry. The compact design allows the unit to be installed in areas with limited space, allowing users more real estate when running applications.
Easy Installation and Programming
Users are able to install and program the S15 drive with minimal downtime. Din Rail kits allow users the option of easily mounting the drive onto a pre-existing DIN inside of a cabinet or on a panel. The addition of the +SU terminal to the S15 allows for the end user to power the drive control section using a simple 24 VDC power supply. This allows startup technicians to program the drive without having to have 230 V or 460 V three-phase power available.
Tough Environment Resistance
Difficult environmental conditions are no problem for the S15. Designed to withstand extreme temperatures, the S15 can operate in temperatures up to 122°F (50°C) without derating and can also be configured for use in temperatures above 122°F (50°C) with a de-rate.
The user maintains ultimate application flexibility with the S15. Toshiba’s advanced vector-control algorithm offers speed regulation of 0.1% sensor-less. Energy saving, user selectable V/Hz patterns make the S15 a smart choice for any application.
Heavy Duty Performance
Offering one of the toughest micro-drive overload ratings in the industry, the S15 is rated for 110% of its full-load amp rating for continuous operation and 150% for up to one minute.
Advanced Features for Maximum Drive Performance
Built-In LED Interface
Users can enjoy quick, user-friendly programming and easy modification of the S15’s expanded parameter set with the LED Interface. Additional remote-mount keypads are also available. The parameter write and simple fault tracking functionality of these optional keypads make setup and troubleshooting quick and simple.
Toshiba’s Proprietary Programming Feature, allows the user to utilize logic-type programming without the expense of a micro PLC. The user is able to read all analog and digital inputs and outputs as well as monitor and compare data. When programmed in a user-defined logic sequence, the use of this data will allow for a higher level of process control not normally seen in an adjustable speed drive. These functions, along with timers, counters, and comparators, allow the S15 to not only meet but exceed performance expectations. (Premium Model Only).
S15’s Easy Key
The S15 has a configurable key that simplifies startup and operation. The easy key quickly accesses commonly changed parameters. In addition, the easy key can also function as a simple local/remote key for easy operation switching.
Improved Proportional/Integral/Derivative (PID) Control Algorithm
The S15’s control algorithm provides regulation of critical processes. High and low speed limits, deviation limits, online switching, and a built-in sleep function are included to enhance the flexibility and reliability of PID process control. Improved control is possible with the S15’s enhanced PID algorithm, making it easier than ever to dial in your process control application.
Toshiba’s Proprietary Windows® -Based ASD Pro Software
This easy-to-use software is designed to provide a full range of programming and monitoring tools for all Toshiba low voltage drives, including the S15. ASD Pro offers parameter reading, trending, and logging features that allow the user to save and transfer parameters and export data and graphs to an electronic file. Parameter groups and trending data can be easily converted into spreadsheets or graphs for field and validation reports.
The S15 drive can be utilized in industries as diverse as; food-processing, HVAC, Mining & Material, and Oil & Gas.
