A closer look at our Altivar Process Modular hire panels.

These new Hire Panels are completely weatherproof for outdoor use and suitable for indoor too, up to 500KW/880A rating at 400V. The new unique design allows for additional modules, each at 160KW rating. So your power requirements can be matched using the same panel design by simply adding the number of modules to obtain your required design power output.

This panel is unique at this power rating as it is small enough (with the rain hood removed) to fit through a standard doorway! Enabling access to areas which would have previously been unreachable!

This is the first design of its kind in the UK VSD rental market but also first for having an outdoor rated unit, up to 500KW and without the need for an additional enclosure or container to house it in. They come with our previous easy to install, cable and set up options and with a genuine 24/7/365 engineer support throughout the whole of the UK.

This truly is a market leading design, with added features created by our in-house Control Panel manufacturers which no other hire VSD has:

Built in 3 phase line choke.
Each drive module has a 3-phase line choke built in for harmonic mitigation, this allows for operation on either the customers own mains supply or mains supply from a diesel generator source without the need for further harmonic filtering.

Built in dv/dt filter.
Each drive module has a dv/dt filter built in allowing up to 300m motor cables without any external components required, this allows for not only long cable runs but also offers further motor winding protection.

Variable Gland Plate Options
Hire panel available with either plain gland plate, brush or quick connects depending on your requirements:

Quick Connect – suitable for indoor or outdoor use with appropriate cables, simple plug and play type connections to allow for ease and time saving connections.
Brush – suitable for indoor use with flexible single type cables
Plain Aluminium – suitable for indoor or outdoor use with armoured or flexible single cables and appropriate glands. Aluminium to prevent induced circulating currents and associated heating of the gland plate with single core cables.

The different gland plates are all the same size so can be interchanged as required. They can also be mixed and matched as required so you could have quick connect for the mains and a plain gland plate for an armoured motor cable, as an example.

We also have cable entries at the top, side and bottom of the panel for both mains and motor connections. The top ones would be for indoor use only as the rain hood needs to be removed to access these.

Door mounted controls with lockable transparent cover
All door mounted controls located behind a lockable transparent cover (except E-Stop). This gives added security when operating on site and allows for authorised only access to door controls. The cover allows for a water / weatherproof option whilst maintaining a clear view to the variable speed drive keypad for operating data.

Recessed door mounted controls
All door mounted equipment is recessed to reduce the overall depth of the panel and reduce the risk of damage during transport or whilst in situ on site.
