Parker AC10 Extended

The standard IP20 230v 3 phase range now includes drives up to 15kw and the IP66 range 400v 3 phase includes drives up a massive 90kw.

Benefits of AC10 IP66
The AC10 from Parker features all of the AC10 benefits with added environmental protection. The IP66 enclosure enables indoor or outdoor use.

  • Maximum uptime and productivity by withstanding the most arduous class 3C3 environments
  • Enhanced 0.5% speed accuracy and 5% torque accuracy
  • Extra power when needed with 150% overload for 60 seconds
  • Energy savings of up to 50% for applications such as fan control

The AC10 IP66 is ideal for use in harsh environmental such as wash down areas in food & beverage, waste plants or rooftop units (not in direct sunlight).

Typical applications include mixers, packaging machinery, textile machinery, conveyors, fans and spindles.
