Lenze 8400 Motec
A frequency converter is a specialized electrical equipment that is designed to regulate the frequency of a variable electric current potential difference. The principle of operation of this type of equipment is based on a change in the speed of the magnetic field relative to the frequency of the supply voltage.
Asynchronous-type electric motors are used in almost all areas of human activity: in industrial equipment, pumps, metal and woodworking installations, fans, etc., and have several significant drawbacks - a permanent rotation speed and high starting currents. A voltage converter is an equipment that can eliminate the disadvantages of asynchronous electric motors and expand their scope.
Today we take a closer look at the Lenze 8400 Motec.
What is Lenze 8400 Motec?
With IP65-rated Lenze 8200 Motec frequency converters in the power range from 0.25 to 7.5 kW, you are best equipped for decentralized drive tasks. The inverters of this series are mounted directly on the motor terminal box or nearby on the machine frame, which is an advantage when choosing a location for mounting the inverters.
The power supply is isolated from the control circuits using special connectors. Pluggable functional expansion modules ensure that the 8200 Motec is easily integrated into the world of control and automation of your machine or plant.
The Motec 8200 series inverters share many of the features of the 8200 Vector series inverters: the control, diagnostics, functionality and behavior of the drives are identical. This turns out to be advantageous in the case of a combination of centralization and decentralization.
For control, you can use either the control panel and settings of the inverter, or a PC using the GDC easy software.

Lenze 8400 Motec Function
Lenze 8400 Motec combine unique qualities, high technical level, reliability and low price. On the basis of frequency converters, it is possible to create flexible systems of electric drive and regulation of technological parameters.
The converters are easily integrated into existing systems with virtually no shutdown of the controlled process, and are easily modified and adapted to suit all aspects of their application. A wide range of capacities and various control system options allow you to choose a solution for many control tasks.
Frequency converters have a standard interface and unified input and output signals to enable them to be turned on by external control systems of a higher level and to connect remote control devices and display information.
Advantages of using frequency converters:
- Smooth regulation of the electric motor rotation speed makes it possible in most cases to refuse from the use of gearboxes, variators, throttles and other control equipment, which greatly simplifies the controlled mechanical (technological) system, increases its reliability and reduces operating costs.
- Frequency start of a controlled motor ensures its smooth acceleration without increased starting currents and mechanical shocks, which reduces the load on the motor and associated transmission mechanisms, and increases their service life. In this case, it becomes possible, under the conditions of start-up, to reduce the power of drive motors of loaded mechanisms.
- The built-in microprocessor PID-controller makes it possible to implement speed control systems for controlled motors and related technological processes.
- The use of a feedback system with a frequency converter ensures high-quality maintenance of the motor speed or an adjustable technological parameter under variable loads and other disturbing influences. Frequency converters complete with an asynchronous electric motor can be used to replace DC drives.
