drives. The PowerFlex 4 Class of drives consists of two products, the
PowerFlex™ 4 and PowerFlex™ 40. Ideal for machine level speed control,
these products provide the application versatility to meet the demands
of global OEMs and end users who require flexibility, space savings
and ease of use. The PowerFlex 4 and PowerFlex 40 AC drives have
commonality in three key areas.
• Ideal for application with limited
panel space
• An economical replacement for
electromechanical devices or
DC solutions

Easy to Start up and Operate
• Integral keypad features a 4 digit display and 10 additional LED
indicators providing intuitive control.
• The keypad and control keys and local potentiometer are active out
of the box, simplifying start up.
• The 10 most commonly programmed parameters are grouped together
for fast and easy start up.
In addition, the PowerFlex 40 features:
• 0-10V or 4-20mA (10-bit) analog
output for feedback or as reference
for other drives
• Timer, counter and logic functions

• Two analog input channels including PID capability enhances
Versatile Programming and Network Solutions
• Integral RS485 communications enable the drives to be used in
a multi-drop network configuration. A serial converter module
provides connectivity to any controller that has the ability to initiate
DF1 messaging.
• DriveExplorer™ and DriveExecutive™ software can be used to program,
monitor and control the drives.
• A NEMA 4X remote and NEMA 1 handheld LCD keypad provide
additional programming and control flexibility, both featuring the
popular CopyCat function.
