VFD Series
Section 1. Variable Frequency Drives
The VFD Series drives are solid-state, variable frequency AC motor
controls. They utilize a 115 or 230 VAC, 50/60 Hz, single phase input to
operate any 115 or 208/230-volt, three-phase AC-induction or singlephase permanent split capacitor motor and can be user calibrated for 0
through 120 Hz output.
Many 3-phase inverter manufacturers claim that they can run single
phase motors effectively. This is normally accomplished by wiring only
2 phases; however, this method may cause instabilities due to the lack
of feedback from one of the motor connections. Furthermore, motor
torque will be considerably reduced because the phases are 120O apart.
Althought the VFD uses this method of connection, its fundamental
design enables it to operate efficiently under these conditions.
Although VFD inverters can operate over their full speed range, most
motors will operate with constant torque over a 10:1 speed range
(6 - 60 Hz), and constant horsepower above 60 Hz. Inverter-duty rated
motors may operate satisfactorily over a 20:1 speed range. Some
motors can be satisfactorily operated at speeds as low as 50 RPMs
(50:1 speed range). Below 50 RPMs, some motors may show signs of
“stepping” or “cogging” and may run warmer.
In addition to standard 3-phase induction motors, the following motor
types may be used with a VFD:
- Permanent Split Capacitor (PSC)
- Shaded Pole
- AC Synchronous

WARNING!
Do not install, rewire, or remove this control with input power
applied. Failure to heed this warning may result in fire, explosion,
or serious injury. Make sure you read and understand the Safety
Precautions on page i before attempting to install this product.
Mounting
• Drive components are sensitive to electrostatic discharge. Avoid
direct contact with the circuit board. Hold the drive by the chassis
or heat sink only.
• Protect the drive from dirt, moisture, and accidental contact.
• Provide sufficient room for access to the terminals and calibration
trim pots.
• Mount the drive away from heat sources. Operate the drive within
the specified ambient operating temperature range.
• Prevent loose connections by avoiding excessive vibration of the
drive.
• Mount the drive with its board in either a horizontal or vertical
plane. Six 0.19” (5 mm) wide slots in the chassis and 4 in the heat
sink accept #8 pan head screws. Fasten either the large base or the
narrow flange of the chassis to the subplate.
• The chassis or heat sink should be earth grounded. Use a star
washer beneath the head of at least one of the mounting screws to
penetrate the anodized surface and to reach bare metal.

WARNING!
Do not install, rewire, or remove this control with input power
applied. Failure to heed this warning may result in fire, explosion,
or serious injury.
Circuit potentials are at 115 or 230 VAC above ground. To prevent
the risk of injury or fatality, avoid direct contact with the printed
circuit board or with circuit elements.
Do not disconnect any of the motor leads from the drive unless
power is removed or the drive is disabled. Opening any one
motor lead while the drive is running may destroy the drive.
This product does not have internal solid state motor overload
protection. It does not contain speed-sensitive overload
protection, thermal memory retention or provisions to receive
and act upon signal from remote devices for over temperature
protection. If motor over protection is needed in the end-use
product, it needs to be provided by additional equipment in
accordance with NEC standards.
• Use 18 - 24 AWG wire for logic wiring. Use 14 - 16 AWG wire for
AC line and motor wiring.

VFD Series
Shielding Guidelines

!
WARNING!
Under no circumstances should power and logic level leads be
bundled together. Induced voltage can cause unpredictable
behavior in any electronic device, including motor controls.
As a general rule, it is recommended to shield all conductors. If it is not
practical to shield power conductors, it is recommended to shield all
logic-level leads. If shielding of all logic-level leads is not practical, the
user should twist all logic leads with themselves to minimize induced
noise.
It may be necessary to earth ground the shielded cable. If noise is
produced by devices other than the drive, ground the shield at the drive
end. If noise is generated by a device on the drive, ground the shield at
the end away from the drive. Do not ground both ends of the shield.
If the drive continues to pick up noise after grounding the shield, it may
be necessary to add AC line filtering devices, or to mount the drive in a
less noisy environment.
Logic wires from other input devices, such as motion controllers and PLL
velocity controllers, must be separated from power lines in the same
manner as the logic I/O on this drive.

VFD Series
Line Fusing
The drives should be fused for protection. Use fast acting fuses rated for
250 VAC or higher and 150% of maximum armature current. Fuse HOT L1
only when the line voltage is 115 VAC. Fuse both L1 and L2 when the line
voltage is 230 VAC. Table 1 lists the recommended line fuse sizes.

WARNING!
Do not connect this equipment with power applied. Failure to
heed this warning may result in fire, explosion, or serious injury.
American Control Electronics strongly recommends the
installation of a master power switch in the voltage input line,
as shown in Figures 6, 7, and 8 (pages 13 and 15). The switch
contacts should be rated at a minimum of 200% of motor
nameplate current and 250 volts.
Power Input (VFD100 or VFD300)
Connect the AC line power leads to terminals L1 and L2. American
Control Electronics recommends the use of a single-throw, double-pole
master power switch. The switch should be rated at a minimum of 250
volts and 200% of motor current. Refer to Figure 6.

WARNING!
Do not connect a 230 VAC line input when the drive is set for a
115 VAC input. This will result in severe damage to the motor and
the drive, and can lead to explosion and/or injury. Check jumper
settings before connecting the AC power input.
The VFD600 series drives are equipped with a voltage doubling feature
which converts a 115 VAC input into a 230 VAC output for use with 230
VAC motors. The drive output current rating remains the same. User
caution when connecting this input.
If the input voltage is 115 VAC and the motor is rated for 230 VAC, set
the drive for voltage-doubler mode. Set jumper J501 for 115V as shown
in Figure 7.
If the input voltage is 230 VAC and the motor is rated for 230 VAC, set
the drive for non-voltage-doubler mode. Set jumper J501 for 230V as
shown in Figure 8.

WARNING!
Caution should be taken when operating fan-cooled motors at
low speeds because their fans may not move sufficient air to
properly cool the motor. It is recommended to use “inverterduty” rated motors when the speed range is beyond 10:1.
The following motor types MAY NOT be used:
· Split Phase
· Any motor with a starting switch
· Repulsion Induction
(centrifugal or relay) and/or a
· Series Universal AC/DC
seperate starting winding.
In general, the drive can work with capacitor-start motors, but it
is conditional on the current pull when the capacitor is in effect
and how long the application calls for a speed that the capacitor
will stay in the auxiliary winding. It is recommended to contact
the motor manufacturer to see if the motor can be ran with a
VFD.
Motor Connections (Single Phase Operation)
For single phase operation, connect the motor as shown in Figure 9.
Ensure that the prewired capacitor and its associated motor coil are
connected to terminals U and V as shown. This connection may be
internal if using a 2-wire motor. If the motor has 3-leads, you may need
to make this connection yourself.
To reverse a single phase split capacitor motor, connect the motor as
shown in Figure 10. The motor run cap must be removed from the circuit.
Motor Connections (Three Phase Operation)
Connect the motor to terminals U, V, and W as shown in Figure 11.

Speed Adjust Potentiometer
Use a 10K ohm, 1/4 W potentiometer for speed control. Connect the
counter-clockwise end of the potentiometer to S1, the wiper to S2, and
the clockwise end to S3. If the potentiometer works inversely of the
desired functionality (e.g. to increase motor speed you must turn the
potentiometer counterclockwise), power off the drive and swap the S1
and S3 connections. Refer to Figure 12.
Enable Switch
Connect a single-pole, single throw ENABLE switch between terminals
E1 and E2. Open the switch to disable the drive and coast the motor to a
stop. Close the switch to enable the drive and accelerate to set speed at
a rate determined by the ACCEL trim pot.
Direction Switch
Connect a single-pole, single throw DIRECTION switch between terminals
E1 and D. Open the switch to run the motor in the forward direction.
Close the switch to run the motor in the reverse direction.

Analog Input Signal
Instead of using a speed adjust potentiometer, the drive may be wired to
follow an analog input voltage signal that is isolated from earth ground
(Figure 13). Connect the signal common (–) to S1. Connect the signal
reference (+) to S2. Make no connection to S3. A potentiometer can be
used to scale the analog input voltage. Adder board ISO301-1 may be
used to isolate an analog input voltage.
An analog input voltage range of 0–5 VDC is required to produce an
voltage range of 0 - full speed.

WARNING!
Change voltage switch settings only when the drive is
disconnected from AC line voltage. Make sure both switches are
set to their correct position. If the switches are improperly set
to a lower voltage position, the motor will not run at full voltage
and may cause damage to the transformer. If the switches are
improperly set to a higher voltage position, the motor will
overspeed, which may cause motor damage, or result in bodily
injury or loss of life.
Dangerous voltages exist on the drive when it is powered. BE
ALERT. High voltages can cause serious or fatal injury. For your
safety, use personal protective equipment (PPE) when operating
this drive.
If the motor or drive does not perform as described, disconnect
the AC line voltage immediately. Refer to the Troubleshooting
section, page 41, for further assistance.
Before Applying Power
1. Verify that no foreign conductive material is present on the
printed circuit board.
2. Ensure that all switches / jumpers are properly set.

(CCW) or set the input voltage signal to minimum.
2. Apply AC line voltage.
3. Slowly advance the speed adjust potentiometer clockwise
(CW) or increase the input voltage signal. The motor slowly
accelerates as the potentiometer is turned CW or as the input
voltage signal is increased. Continue until the desired speed is
reached.
4.

Starting and Stopping Methods

!
WARNING!
Dynamic braking, coasting to a stop, or decelerating to minimum
speed is recommended for frequent starts and stops. Do not use
any of these methods for emergency stopping. They may not stop
a drive that is malfunctioning. Removing AC line power (both
lines) is the only acceptable method for emergency stopping.
For this reason, American Control Electronics strongly
recommends installing an emergency stop switch on both AC line
inputs (see Figures 6, 7, and 8 on pages 13 and 15).
Frequent starting and stopping can produce high torque. This
may cause damage to motors, especially gearmotors that are not
properly sized for the application.
Automatic Restart Upon Power Restoration
All drives automatically run to set speed when power is applied and the
enable is closed.
Line Starting and Stopping
Line starting and stopping (applying and removing AC line voltage) is
recommended for infrequent starting and stopping of a drive only. When
AC line voltage is applied to the drive, the motor accelerates to the speed
set by the speed adjust potentiometer or analog signal. When AC line
voltage is removed, the motor coasts to a stop.
23
VFD Series
Decelerating to Zero Speed
The switch shown in Figure 15 may be used to decelerate a motor to zero
speed. The DECEL trim pot setting determines the rate at which the drive
decelerates. By opening the switch, the motor accelerates to set speed
at a rate determined by the ACCEL trim pot setting.

Section 5. Calibration

!
WARNING!
Dangerous voltages exist on the drive when it is powered. When
possible, disconnect the voltage input from the drive before
adjusting the trim pots. If the trim pots must be adjusted with
power applied, use insulated tools and the appropriate personal
protection equipment. BE ALERT. High voltages can cause serious
or fatal injury.
VFD series drives have user-adjustable trim pots. Each drive is factory
calibrated to its maximum current rating. Readjust the calibration trim
pot settings to accommodate lower current rated motors.
All adjustments increase with CW rotation, and decrease with CCW
rotation. Use a non-metallic screwdriver for calibration. Each trim pot is
identified on the printed circuit board.
25
VFD Series
Maximum Speed (MAX)
The MAX setting determines the maximum motor speed (voltage/
frequency) when the speed adjust potentiometer or input voltage signal
is set for maximum speed.
To calibrate MAX:
1.
Set the MAX trim pot full CCW.
2.
Set the speed adjust potentiometer or input voltage signal for
maximum speed.
3. Adjust MAX until the desired maximum speed is reached.
26
VFD Series
Torque (TQ LIMIT)

!
WARNING!
TQ LIMIT should be set to 120% of motor nameplate current
rating. Continuous operation beyond this rating may damage the
motor. If you intend to operate beyond the rating, contact your
American Control Electronics representative for assistance.
The TQ LIMIT setting determines the maximum torque for accelerating
and driving the motor.
To calibrate TQ LIMIT:
1. With the power disconnected from the drive, connect a DC
ammeter in series with the armature.
2. Set the TQ LIMIT trim pot to minimum (full CCW).
3. Set the speed adjust potentiometer full CW or input voltage
signal to maximum speed.
4. Carefully lock the motor armature. Be sure that the motor is
firmly mounted.
5. Apply line power. The motor should be stopped.
6. Slowly adjust the TQ LIMIT trim pot CW until the armature
current is 120% of motor rated armature current.
7. Turn the speed adjust potentiometer CCW or decrease the
input voltage signal.
8. Remove line power.
9. Remove the stall from the motor.
10. Remove the ammeter in series with the motor armature if it is
no longer needed.
27
VFD Series
Boost (BOOST)
The BOOST trim pot is used to increase motor torque at low speeds. The
minimum setting is sufficient for most applications and does not need
to be adjusted. If the motor stalls or runs erratically at very low speeds
(below 10 Hz), the boost trim pot may need adjustment.
To calibrate BOOST:
1.
Run the motor at the lowest continuous frequency/speed
required.
2.
Monitor the motor phase current (with a true RMS meter) while
very slowly turning the BOOST trim pot CW until the motor
operates properly, or 100% of the motor nameplate current is
reached.
Use the absolute minimum amount of BOOST necessary to
NOTE: U
achieve proper motor operation. Improper use of the
BOOST feature may cause motor and/or drive overheating
and failure.
28
VFD Series
Acceleration (ACCEL)
The ACCEL setting determines the time the motor takes to ramp to a
higher speed. See Specifications on page 1 for approximate acceleration
times. ACCEL is factory set for the shortest acceleration time (full CCW).
To set the acceleration time:
1.
Set the speed adjust potentiometer or input voltage signal for
minimum speed. The motor should run at minimum speed.
2.
Set the speed adjust potentiometer or input voltage signal for
maximum speed. Measure the time it takes the motor to go
from minimum to maximum speed.
3. If the time measured in step 2 is not the desired acceleration
time, turn the ACCEL trim pot CW for a longer acceleration time
or CCW for a shorter acceleration time. Repeat steps 1 through
2 until the acceleration time is correct.
Deceleration (DECEL)
The DECEL setting determines the time the motor takes to ramp to a
lower speed. See Specifications on page 1 for approximate deceleration
times. DECEL is factory set for the shortest deceleration time (full CCW).
To set the deceleration time:
1.
Set the speed adjust potentiometer or input voltage signal for
maximum speed. The motor should run at maximum speed.
2. Set the speed adjust potentiometer or input voltage signal for
minimum speed. Measure the time it takes the motor to go
from maximum to minimum speed.
3. If the time measured in step 2 is not the desired deceleration
time, turn the DECEL trim pot CW for a longer deceleration time
or CCW for a shorter deceleration time. Repeat steps 1 through
2 until the deceleration time is correct.

Leader-Follower Application
In this application, use a ISO202-1 to monitor the speed of the leader
motor (Figure 22). The ISO202-1 isolates the leader motor from the
follower drive, and outputs a voltage proportional to the leader motor
armature voltage. The follower drive uses this voltage reference to set
the speed of the follower motor. An optional ratio potentiometer may be
used to scale the ISO202-1 output voltage.

Section 7. Diagnostic LEDs
VFD series drives are equipped with three diagnostic LEDs:
•
Power (POWER): Green LED lights whenever AC line voltage is
applied to the drive.
•
Current Limit (TQ): Yellow LED lights whenever the drive reaches
current limit.
•
Fault (FAULT): Red LED lights whenever one of the following
conditions has occurred.
1. Undervoltage
115 VAC line: DC bus dropped below 100 VDC (93.5 VAC rms).
230 VAC line: DC bus dropped below 200 VDC (187 VAC rms).
2. Overvoltage
115 VAC line: DC bus exceeded 200 VDC (152.5 VAC rms).
230 VAC line: DC bus exceeded 400 VDC (302 VAC rms).
3. Instantaneous Overcurrent Trip
Inverter output current has exceeded safe levels.
To remove a fault condition, the enable must be cycled. Cycling
the AC line power will remove a fault as well, but the capacitors
must completely discharge before re-applying power for the fault
to clear.

Section 10. Optional C510 Capacitor Kit
In some applications, lower carrier frequency reduces switching losses
and increases bearing life in some motors. American Control Electronics
provides an optional capacitor kit for lowering the carrier frequency.
The default carrier frequency on a VFD series control is 16 kHz. Using one
of the capacitors supplied in kit KTP-0108, the carrier frequency can be
lowered to a range of 12 kHZ to 4 kHz.
Note: Audible noise will be increase as carrier frequency is lowered.
To lower the carrier frequency on a VFD series control, install one of the
following 2-pin capacitors (C510) on the bottom board. Refer to Figure
