Magnetek VG+ Series 5 Features:

  • New built-in sway control. You can automatically benefit from specialty application functions built into our IMPULSE VG+ Series 5 Variable Frequency Drives at no extra cost. As standard, sway control is integrated into every IMPULSE Series 5 Variable Frequency Drive.
  • New high-resolution keypad. The new keypad makes reading diagnostics even easier. We restructured parameter menus to ensure you have access to the settings that best match your application needs without having to navigate through nonessentials.
  • New date and time stamps. With new date and time stamps, now you can quickly identify fault events, determine corrective actions, and return your equipment to operation faster.
  • New quick part replacements. Spare parts are easier to replace than ever. Memory has been removed from the terminal board, so replacements are quick and easy.
  • New low voltage commissioning. With a new built-in USB port, you can directly connect to a PC to configure and adjust parameters. Need to power up the keypad? Only 24 VDC is needed. No PPE required.
  • Safe Lifting features are built right in, including Torque Proving, which confirms the motor is providing enough torque to safely lift a load prior to releasing the brake. Torque Limiting prevents the crane from performing a lift that could overload the motor and cause mechanical fatigue.
  • Ultra-lift gets your VFD up and running quickly. X-Press Programming automatically configures several commonly used parameters and features when a control method, motion, or speed reference is selected.
  • Safe torque off. With SIL3 rating, provides a redundant hardware safety circuit that guarantees motor and brake power are removed when an E-STOP switch or safety controller opens the circuit, eliminating the need for external disconnects.
  • Anti-shock automatically stabilizes loads by detecting and minimizing rapid increases in hoist motor torque, thus reducing the potential for crane damage caused by operator induced load shock.
  • Enhanced connectivity and diagnostics. Whether you have a single crane or multiple cranes in difficult-to-reach locations, IMPULSE® Link 5 can integrate with these new VFDs, providing easy setup and access to monitoring and diagnostics.
  • The load check feature ensures continuous detection of hoist overload conditions, halting upward motion and only allowing the load to be lowered. Load Check monitors the hook load, eliminating the need for load cells in many applications.
  • Ambient operating temperature. Series 5 VFDs safely operate in temperatures from 14° to 140°F (-10° to 60°C), making them ideal for a wide range of applications.
