FRENIC Ace

FRENIC Ace fra Fuji Electric

Product Information

Customizable Logic

Customizable logic function is available as a standard feature. FRENIC-Ace has built-in customizable logic functions with a maximum of 200 steps including both digital and analog operation functions, giving customers the ability to customize their inverters—from simple logic functions to full-scale programming. Fuji Electric also has plans to offer programming templates for wire drawing machines, hoists, spinning machines, and other applications so that the FRENIC-Ace can be used as a dedicated purpose inverter.

Example: Hoist crane application

Functional Safety

FRENIC-Ace is equipped with STO functional safety function as a standard. Therefore output circuit magnetic contactors are not required for safe stop implementation. Enhanced standard features position FRENIC-Ace ahead of its class (Safety input: 2CH, output: 1CH).

Complies with (coming soon)

EN ISO 13849-1: 2008, Cat.3 / PL=e IEC/EN 61800-5-2: 2007 SIL3 (Safety feature: STO)
IEC/EN 60204-1: 2005/2006 Stop category 0 IEC/EN 62061: 2005 SIL3
IEC/EN 61508-1 to -7: 2010 SIL3  

 

10 Years Lifetime Design

FRENIC-Ace components have a design life of ten years.
A longer maintenance cycle also helps to reduce running costs.

  Main circuit capacitor 10 years*
Electrolytic capacitors on PCB 10 years*
Cooling fan 10 years*
  Ambient temperature +40°C
Load rate 100% (HHD specifications)
80% (HND/HD/ND specifications)

* ND specifications have a rated current of two sizes higher than HHD specifications, so the life is 7 years.
